Beltway Traffic Jam

The real-life Beltway traffic jam started around five hours ago. The last linkfest of the week, with a Blogorama flavor:

  • Hit & Run: The Passion of the Bunny.
  • Lex Gibson has a sordid tale of drunkenness at the Pentagon.
  • Jen on her first game of foosball. Last week?!
  • Radley Balko’s comment section is being raided by The Onion.
  • Matthew Yglesias thinks VDH inconsistent. Debate ensues in comments.
  • Sid explains why Tokyo is cool. It involves a hat.
  • Courtney explains the perils of living near–but not near enough–D.C.
  • Andrew Chamberlain provides insight on how spineless American society has become in the last 25-odd years.
  • Jim Henley cleverly weasels out of providing his own plan for Iraq.
  • Jennifer Klyse hates PowerPoint. Since it started paying the bills, I’ve grown quite fond of it.
  • Julia has her own, more seat-of-the-pants, synopsis.

  1. Jim Henley says:

    Dude: I may have been unclear. I wasn’t claiming I get a generation to COME UP with a plan. I just had to get to work. I’m saying that I get a generation for my plan to WORK is all. Just like the Weekly Standard.

  2. James Joyner says:

    Heh. Okay–that seems fair enough. It’ll probably take a generation–certainly, at least a couple peaceful transitions of power–before we can address the Standard’s plan.
