Best of our TU Community Blogs, April 30, 2015: Ten for Thursday

Once again, it’s time for me to take a back seat from my personal thoughts on my blog, and share with you the voices of ten of my fellow Times Union community bloggers.  This is the time when I share with you their ideas, their thoughts, their concerns, their observations, their snarks and their reflections.  I’m happy to do it, if for no other reason than they deserve to be heard.

So as the Black Eyed Peas once said, “Let’s get it started… let’s get it started in here…”

This week’s batch of blogs worth reading includes:

  1. Professor Warren Roberts’ blog, “Questions of war and guilt and shame.(Read this first.)
  2. Rabbi Matt Cutler’s “Congregation Gates of Heaven” blog, “A lesson or 2 from Vietnam … 40 years later.
  3. Kim Swidler’s “Travel Gal” blog, “Bethel Woods.  Great Time at the Mary Chapin Carpenter Concert.
  4. David Kalish’s “The Ruminator” blog, “The incredible adventures of my wife’s nose.
  5. Rev. Alan Rudnick’s blog, “Be informed, not ignorant, on Baltimore.
  6. Roger Green’s “Information Without the Bun” blog, “The library meme.
  7. Holly Loth in the books blog, “Portrait of the blogger as a bookshelf.
  8. Brian Huba’s “Cat’s Pajamas” blog, “Bye-bye, Mr. American Pie.
  9. Pete Bardunias’ Chamber of Southern Saratoga County blog, “Forging a Path to a Living Wage.
  10. Lisbeth Calandrino in the “Success” blog, “Women, Sports and Success, a Conversation with Sue Macy.”

And there you have it.  Ten rockin’ blogs by ten rockin’ community bloggers.

If you know of a TU community (not staff) blogger that deserves some inclusion into this feature for next week, by all means leave a note in the comments section of this blog.  And if you’ve enjoyed what these bloggers have said this week, by all means comment on their pages and let them know you appreciate what they do.

And have a great day!
