Sunday Issues Links: 23 November 2008

category_bug_politics.gif Sunday Issues Links is a list linking to useful, worthwhile, compelling and/or provocative posts from elderbloggers and stories from other sources that catch my fancy during the week.

The issues are the big ones and there are plenty: the economy, war(s), the Obama administration, Congress, the judiciary, legislation, education, health care and politics in general. Smaller issues and a little humor are good too. Please send your links for each edition by the end of day on the preceding Friday.

Cat on a spinning Roomba [:46 seconds]


Thanks for the belly laugh. The cat on the Roomba is too cute.

The cat was just what I needed today. Have you seen the hamsters on Dee's coffee blog.

Ah, thanks so much for this silliness. It's the kind of break that helps me deal with all the other stuff going on, such as the posts that followed this. Now I not only want a Roomba, I want a cat to ride on it! Endless entertainment.

Sorry. 'Shoulda previewed that comment before submitting it. But I think you understand it's not your posts I refer to as "stuff to endure" but the subject matter pertained therein!
