Blogs of the Month & Tsunami Charities 

OK, so it's February 16th, and I'm just getting around to changing the Blogs of the Month. Neither me nor my blog have ever been about punctuality anyway, heh. Here are the three newest Blogs of the Month:

* Jeff Simmermon. He previously posted about his experiences with Iraqi voters at his local US voting station. There's more to his blog than the one post. Most of the posts are about personal life.

* Not exactly a blog, a magazine instead: Red And Blue. Recommended by a favorite read of mine, Joe Gandelman's Moderate Voice, this new webzine comes from the creator of Iron Blog. Red and Blue promises to give both sides of the political debate on various issues in a calm, reasonable, non-vein popping style. I'll be damned.

* Jerry Brown. California's former Governor Moonbeam has become the Mayor of Oakland, now known for his efforts to reduce crime and bring business to Oakland. His first post is a defense of Oakland's controversial curfew for those on probation. (Hat tip: Jeff Jarvis.)


Also, I'm moving the tsunami charity list from the blogroll to this posting, in case someone wants to view it in the future:
