TGIF- Intersting Links and Open Trackbacks

Well, it's that time again. Thank goodness it's Friday. As always I've noted some interesting articles for your reading pleasure and of course I'm featuring open inline trackbacks. So if you have something you want to share go ahead and trackback to this post. Your trackback will appear here on the main page.

Conservatives call for Miers withdrawal- The conservative voice is booming about this one. Many don't want Miers to go to the confirmation hearings.

Sen. Frist announced that Congress will tackle immigration enforcement before guest-worker programs- The President has not only ignored the immigration enforcement problem, he has stated that he'd rather focus on a "guest-worker" program before even addressing the border situation. Thankfully the congressional Republicans see things differently.

Social Security benefits to rise Good for retirees but bad for workers who have to support SSI for the poor who refuse to work.

Rude behavior may be result of fast paced, high-tech society- I'm always interested in social issues and I feel that our fast paced society is encouraging a lack of courtesy and respect in our society.

Al-qaeda claims 13 page letter a fake-The letter indicated some possible internal strife among Al-qaeda leaders as well as a plan to spread an extremist Muslim empire centered in the Middle East.

Vivian Malone Jones, first black graduate of University of Alabama, has passed away- Many remember George Wallace's famous stand in front of the Alabama doors to prevent the black students from enrolling. Vivian Malone Jones was one of those students and the first black graduate from the University of Alabama. Truly a sad day for all of the citizens of Alabama who remember Ms. Jones's strength and resolve in the face of bigotry.

David Limbaugh-we should keep an open mind on Miers- Limbaugh has a much different take than Ann Coulter regarding the senate's role of advice and consent in the Miers confirmation.

Also don't forget to check out this week's Carnival of Liberty and the Carnival of the Vanities.

Check out Basil's articles of interest as well.

Remember to send in those trackbacks. You can use the Wizbang Standalone Trackback Form to send in those trackbacks if your blog software doesn't support a trackback system. Don't forget to link to this post in the post you trackback.

Have a fantastic weekend!

Thanks Capitol Junkie! I must say I've been very impressed with the functions of Movable Type and the hospitality of the MuNu gang. A great group of folks.
