Well, so far I can only find two New Weblog Showcase blog entries (that are not mine) to link to...
The first is actually more interesting than the blub made it sound: Occasional Subversion on biotechnology or crop mutation or something. This is my favorite passage:
"Humans have modified crops for centuries through selective breeding; indeed, it would be difficult to name any crop which is "pure" -- just defining purity would be a challenge. The people who argue against genetic modification are often arguing from a point of view which equates something they call "nature" with purity, but such a view of nature has less to do with science than religion."
The next showcase entry I am voting for, Triteness Studies, I enjoyed because I had previously read that news article on the "privilege walk" and had been pretty annoyed that anyone was forced to take that class. The money quote from this essay is "History is much a tale of one people oppressing another. " So true and yet so cynical. Must be why I liked it. (Plus, my grandparents grew up German--in America--during World War I, so my "people" suffered oppression, too.)
Anyway, maybe I'll re-read some of the other entries tomorrow in hopes of finding a third candidate for linkage .
And remember, a link to my entry is a vote for me, a link to my blog is an indication of your taste and refinement....... :)
