It’s Been A Hard Day At The Ol’ Blog.......................
Notice my links to the right. We are all blessed, by blogger.com, on start-up with three hot links. One for Goggle, which I absolutely love, use daily, and would not remove. The other two are "edit me" links. It didn’t look like rocket surgery to cut and paste the template to start adding my personal links. Since The Beak Speaks was my inspiration to start my own Blog I linked to him immediately. Later I thought about La Shawn Barber and her wonderful site so I linked to her. Today I found out that maybe it was rocket surgery because my links were dead. I found the error in short order and repaired the same.
Now who is La Shawn Barber you ask. She is a beautiful, conservative Christian lady with a wonderful conservative Blog and web site. When you start thinking about what conservatives should be doing in the Blogosphere you have to look and see what she is doing. I don’t remember how, or why, I first dropped into La Shawn Barber’s Corner, but I do know that I was very impressed with her, her views, and her effectively expressing those views in the written word. I immediately contacted her with an offer of marriage. La Shawn most graciously wrote back to me with the information that she was single. La Shawn is a great lady.
Today La Shawn has written about the controversy centered around Kenneth Y. Tomlinson whom President Bush appointed as Chairman of the Public Broadcasting Corporation. I heard about the controversy earlier today. Please go read what La Shawn has written about this story.
Coincidentally Texas Public Radio is having one of their periodic fund raisers today. I was listening to the local NPR Classic station today is why I know about the fund raiser. Listening to the pleas for donations and thinking about the current controversy reminded me of an NPR fund raiser years ago. I wrote to the local station and told them how much I wanted to send a modest donation. I asked why the programming couldn’t include equal programming for conservative broadcasts. I never received a reply so I have never donated. It was a very simple question asked years and years before conservatives began clamoring for "fair and balanced." I really like many things about NPR but refuse to support it with a donation until they mend their ways.
Perhaps you think Big Bubba is too stingy to donate to NPR. That is not the case. I do choose to support BBN (The Bible Broadcasting Network) with a small monthly donation. They have stations all over North and South America. They also do webcasting in many languages.
Please go read and support La Shawn!
