Liberal Sources To Learn About Events In Egypt

Protests in Egypt are ongoing.

It is always of value to get the liberal viewpoint on the great world issues.

(Above–The Nation.)

Below are some liberal sources to read about events in Egypt. The link is either to a specific article or to a package of writings about Egypt.  In any case, it would be of value to explore the sites linked to in this post.

The American Prospect is monthly magazine of liberal opinion and policy. I have a home subscription.

The Progressive has been fighting the good fight for over 100 years.

Mother Jones did a great job on coverage of the BP spill. Now they are working hard to report on Egypt.

The Nation is one of the oldest liberal voices in the U.S.

Salon is an online magazine writing extensively on Egypt.

The Atlantic has something of value to say.

Talking Points Memo is a blog/online magazine that merits frequent reading.

This is by no means a complete list. If you have a source you value, please leave a comment.

None of us have enough time to read everything that we would like to read. Still, we can take a few moments to support the media outlets that do the hard work to support our beliefs and goals.

As I mentioned above with The American Prospect, I subscribe to one of these publications. Please consider offering your financial support to these great sources of investigative reporting and astute analysis of current events.

It is up to all of us to do the hard work of freedom. We can’t rely on others to get the facts out to the public. We have to offer our help and support.

Old Car At Metabolife Booth

Here is an old car that is pulled up to the Metabolife booth.

The booth does not appear to be well-attended.

The driver of the car must be out looking for the person who should be in the booth.

When you are out driving around, you never know what you will see.

I took this picture while out driving around.

I don’t know that I have ever seen a Metabolife booth. I don’t really even know what Metabolife is—Though I’m not fully certain one can get the things they need in life from a booth.

Maybe you will find the things you need in a library.

I located a Salon article where Bill Bradley and his wife walked past a Metabolife booth in New Hampshire in 1999 when Senator Bradley was seeking the 2000 Democratic Presidential nomination.

From the articleErnestine Bradley is much more charismatic on the stump than her terse hubby. Bradley was typically mellow as he careened past the Metabolife booth and Perfumania while Ernestine bubbled to voters, “Hi! You going to vote? I hope so. I hope you vote for the right guy! I’m the wife.”

I guess that article is proof that these booths did once exist.

If you know what kind of car that is, please leave a comment.
