14 Blog Posts You Have to Check Out

"Et tu?" has again found some of the most fascinating blog postings on the net. Go to her post Weekly favorites .

Here are my favorite two from that list as she describes them
A detox from selfishness: David Buetow writes for NPR about how having a dog changed his life, saying "It was extreme detox from selfishness...I found that I actually liked being relied upon." A very nice piece, although kind of sad that men in our culture must learn this from their dogs.


People of the lie: Newly released photos of the staff at Auschwitz show "photos of laughing and smiling SS officers; officers relaxing in deck chairs; officers and officials eating and drinking; singalongs (including one graced by the sinister presence of Dr. Mengele)", and more. These people weren't smiling because they thought they were doing evil. They were able to relax and enjoy themselves because they were confident in the stories they told themselves. This is exactly what I was thinking of when I wrote this post.
