OTB Outside the Blog

As you know, several of OTB’s bloggers also blog elsewhere.  Occasionally, we’ll round up those posts for your reference.

Over at Heretical Ideas, Alex Knapp has an exclusive interview with Jesus Christ and the Top 5 “Burn Notice” Quotes.

Dave Schuler uses The Glittering Eye to comment on yet another Chicago politician under federal indictment, and the lack of meaningful democracy in Illinois generally.  Plus, he has some questions about health care reform.

At Crossroads Arabia, John Burgess notes a counterintuitive case of Saudi Arabia’s light sentencing for murder and a rather routine case of Saudi women enjoying less than full rights.  Also, Swine Flu has reached the Gulf States.

Chris Lawrence has been pretty inactive at Signifying Nothing, too, most recently expressing his confusion over libertarians who support Mark Sanford.

Of course, as previously noted, I do most of my foreign policy blogging at New Atlanticist, where I’ve written about National Security Advisor Jim Jones’ speech to the Atlantic Council and his assertion that the United States is safer under Obama and there is no imminent threat from North Korea’s nukes.

    I haven’t seen a post like this before, but appreciate the cross references. This blogging thing is all about variety and scope in intellectual discourse.

    I’ve become, I guess, a frequent commentor at Schuler’s GEye, and an unabashed fan of his writing/thinking, and his commentors, even as we parry on certain issues.

    I’ll have to visit other sites you referenced, although Alex’s..uh……not so much. Even though he is apparently interviewing Jesus Christ himself. Pretty good get, eh?

    What? You don’t like Burn Notice?

    Note to bloggers: Make your title bar a clickable link to your main page. And possibly ask your friends if you should update your artwork.

    (Burn Notice was fun for about half the first season, but when I’ve dipped in lately it seems badly repetitive … in fact certain plot elements make me fear it’s jumped the shark. Of course many shows are funny and ironic for about half the first season, and then go on to about 10 years of badly repetitive fame and fortune.)

  4. Alex Knapp says:


    We’re going to have to disagree on that. I’m of the opinion Burn Notice is the best show on TV.

  5. Drew says:

    I guess I need to get around more. I’ve never heard of Burn Notice.

    Burn Notice is on USA and the new season starts this coming Thursday. There’s going to be a Season 1 and Season 2 marathon next week. I highly recommend you catching up.
