Front Line Voices is a new project launched by Frank J of IMAO. It is planned to be an outlet for the letters of those serving in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere, and a counter to the one-note reporting of much of the mainstream media.
You can learn more about the project and how you can help at the Front Line Voices Meetingplace.

N.Z. Bear has a particularly fine collection of bloggers in this week's New Weblog Showcase.
And if that fails, we can zap them with Leomund's Lamentable Belabourment. That'll teach them.
So, who are my picks?
Brainstorming, because, well, that's cool and funny.
Snooze Button Dreams because it's funny and insightful, and because I have an addiction to the snooze button myself.
And Pardon my English, because sometimes irony will not do and you just have to cut loose with a rant.

A very warm Munuvian welcome for [Who is it this time, Susie? Right, thanks.] Mister Green. Mister Green is the product of early bioengineering experiments conducted on [What's that? Oh. Right, I see.] Mister Green is not the product of early bioengineering experiments, and in fact comes certified 100% natural ingredients.
Snap! Crackle! Mister Green!

Another new Munuvian! This time it's Daniel Moore, nanotechnology researcher and all-round good guy. By curious coincidence, not long before joining us here he discovered this:
The Japanese have a word alleged, by Douglas Hofstadter - writer of this great book I read in AP US History forever ago called American Political Tradition and the Men Who Made It, to mean "Your question cannot be answered because it depends on incorrect assumptions." I recently had a long discussion with a friend in which my answers were based on how I can't answer her questions because of the underlying assumptions to her argument that I didn't buy into and I didn't want to validate them. I could have just used this word. It is pronouced "moo" like the cow noise and is unfortunately transliterated to "mu" (unfortunate because it only supports people mispronouncing the Greek letter with the same transliteration).My mother gave me Hofstadter's Gödel, Escher, Bach for Christmas when I was 16, which led (via a tortuous path) to this very web site. mu.nu: The only way I could have packed more meaning into a domain name would have been to call it cat.dog... And there's no .dog TLD, so that's out anyway.

The latest Munuvian is a small blue rabbit.
A warm welcome please for Roxette Bunny!
I haven't done a Blog of the Day for a while (in fact, due to pressures at work I haven't blogged much at all in the past few weeks) but I was checking my inbound links tonight and I tripped over The Patriette. (It was dark.)
One can't help but admire a blogger who titles a post "Oh bother! I seem to be stuck in an Argentine prison!" (or for that matter, "Things I Hate: France"). She even has me blogrolled - uh, which is how I found her. Albeit she has me blogrolled as "Alas! Alack! Oh, no!", but that's better than not being blogrolled, right?

Bringing much-needed cheesiness to mu.nu is LeeAnn of The Cheese Stands Alone.
