Perhaps my favorite blog out there right now is The Weekly Sift. The gentleman who writes it is one of the most level-headed and insightful people writing on the interwebs these days. He only posts on Mondays so there’s no garbage and everything is well researched and insightful. I give a little squee of dorkish delight every Monday when his posts pop up as I’m scrolling through my RSS feed. I want to be him when I grow up.
His latest is Am I Charlie? Should I Be? It is pitch perfect and not only gets to the heart of the Charlie Hebdo massacre, but drill into the soul of the Freedom of Speech debate.
