      Follow Friday Blogs, September 15, 2012

      While #FFBlogs are

      becoming occasional rather than a rigorous weekly ritual, I do still keep an eye out for the interesting, thoughtful, provocative, and--sometimes--strange in an attempt to share them with you every now

      and then.  So here I am back with three new sites worth a few minutes of your time.

      First up is A Plain Blog About Politics from Jonathan Bernstein. Jonathan is "a political scientist blogging about American politics, especially the presidency, Congress, parties, and elections."  He

      provides straightforward analysis largely free of spin, and takes the time to look at the always-present gray areas inside every issue. I particularly like his Yoda-voiced reminder to "read stuff, you should."

      Next up is DC Dispatches, a combination of blog and re-blog from Philip H., an oceanographer from W'ton D.C. (Full disclosure: my blog is on his "The Blogs I Like" list, so I'm a little biased....)  As a scientist, he provides a fair bit of conversation on the intersection between science and politics, a subject I find important as well.

      Finally this week... if you have a world of time and a wide interest in all things politics, you might check out the political forum over at The Hornet Zone.  A traditional forum site, it's true, but I've found that it seems to attract a thoughtful crowd, and seems short on much of the attack-and-spin rhetoric I find in many other places.

      Enjoy!  See you in a couple of weeks!

      (And, as always, check out my latest posts here.)
