You've been Tagged

Please join in the Valley of the Shadow Annual Fundraiser. We are raising $7,700. Please hit the Tip Jar here to contribute. Thank you.
----------------------------------------------
Later this week, I am going on vacation to San Diego. Unless something interesting happens, we'll have a few light posts. Battling in the Blogosphere is hard work. The Israel/Palestinian issue will always be with us; Let us take a breather and laugh.

Rules of being Tagged
Tagging in the Blogosphere means, that if you've been picked, you have to pick five to ten others to follow suit. Here are some questions and answers. The questions in brackets can be changed when you "tag" some other blogger. Read the next section for the list of tagged Bloggers. If you're tagged, answer the questions on your Blog. Meantime, enjoy the music from my friend Jon Winquist.

  2. What are your policies on tagbacks? But seriously, I've answered all of these here. But did you add the Nixonian/Wilsonian thing yourself or is that something that any other bloggers are actually talking about?

    The Wilsonian v. Nixonian is my design. I'm hoping the debate spreads through the Blogosphere. Thanks for answering!
