      I'm serving up politics with a touch of the literary this week, to celebrate my own recent positive reviews for Chasing Glenn Beck. (Yes, I know: shameless plug. But if I can't who can?)

      I'm starting this week with Deborah Newell Tornello's Litbrit, subheaded (interestingly) as "Chaos, control; chaos, control. You like? You like?" This is a great subheading for two reasons. First, it's written as a sentence. None of those useless capital letters. Second, it's very yin/yang. Kudos. The blog itself is incredibly well written, and blends political topicality with an artisan's soul. I'll be coming back to this one regularly now that I've found it.

      Another well-written blog is The College Conservative, launched last November as a vehicle for young conservative activists to speak and be heard. The focus is on Constitutional Conservatism and, while that does seem to imply a GOP leaning (true in this case), the site makes no apologies. "We are the next generation of leaders," writes Editor-in-Chief Zachary Freeman, and he's right. The writers here deserve your time.

      Finally this week, we steer away from politics and back to, well, real life, I guess. Author Shelli Johnson has a great site--Shelli Johnson, Author--at which she blogs about all kinds of wonderful things: her favorite writing advice, what she wishes she had known back when she was 20, and similarly toned uplifting topics. Plus recipes. (Quick note to Shelli, though: You're only 25!  Come back in twenty years and tell me what you wish you'd known now!)

      Quick note: Be sure to listen on Tuesday, February 28 at 1:00 PM Eastern when I'll appear on WUSB's "Everything is Broken." I'll be discussing "The (So-Called) Two-Party System" with host Jim Lynch. You can find the program on 90.1 FM, Long Island and on the web at WUSB.FM.
