A simple little idea: Go to your Calendar and find the first real entry for each month of 2005 (not including memes of course). Post the first line of it in your journal, and that’s your year in review. Mine seems to be a pretty good summary of what I use this blog for…
January: In the past two years, I’ve heard several soldiers say that they dislike civilians questioning the course of the war, since if the soldiers aren’t allowed to do so, why should someone who isn’t even involved?
February: The political philosophy of the Bandar-Log
March: Can anyone point me at a reliable source of information about the activities of frienditto, and if at all possible to their terms of service?
April: My only excuse for this is that I was reading the Heimskringla while really, really sleep-deprived, and woke up with this in my head.
May: Hmm… I haven’t posted anything in here in a while.
June: The desert and Petra were amazing.
July: Looks like Newsweek just came out with their article about the source in the Valerie Plame case, based on what Time magazine decided to hand over to prosecutors.
August: I just got back from a talk given by a friend of mine who’s been out of the country for some time, being a peace activist in the West Bank.
September: Of course! It’s so clear now! The people still in New Orleans are there because they want to be there.
October: President Bush has nominated White House Counsel Harriet Miers to succeed Sandra Day O’Connor on the Supreme Court.
November: Senator James Inhofe (R-OK), chair of the Senate Environment and Public Works committee, and supposedly an Evangelical Christian, responded to calls for “Creation Care” (i.e., stewardship of the world) from the National Association of Evangelicals, in an interesting fashion.
December: (I actually haven’t posted at all in December)
