Montana Blog Roundup 22 January 2012


Highlighting some of the most interesting and provocative posts in the past week atblogroundup Montana blogs.

Without a doubt, the biggest story this week was the story about the allegations against and subsequent resignation of Commissioner of Political Practices Dave Gallik. It all started with  an investigative piece by the Great Falls Tribune’s John Adams. Jhwygirl weighed in, wondering why there isn’t greater oversight of Political Practices and James Conner suggested that moving the functions of the office to the offices of the Secretary of State and Attorney General would make more sense in the long run.

D Gregory reminded us that Representative Rehberg’s rhetoric on taxes and regulations certainly doesn’t match his record in Congress.

MT Cowgirl highlighted the grammatically challenged CALL TO ACTION from the Montana TEA Party to “boycott all news.” Fox News has finally succumbed to the pressure of the liberal elite, it appears.

Jhwygirl criticized House candidate Kim Gillian for appearing to “champion the short-term economic boom” to Billings after the Yellowstone River oil spill.

The Western Word offered a conservative perspective about Rick Hill’s choice of Jon Sonju as his running mate.

Over here at Intelligent Discontent, we debated Wikipolitics, risked our lives mocking Neil Livingstone once again, and critiqued the Board of Regents.

I hope everyone’s week is off to a great start and let’s all remember, anyone but the Patriots!

If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

Thanks for this glorious article. One other thing is that almost all digital cameras are available equipped with the zoom lens that permits more or less of your scene to generally be included by simply ‘zooming’ in and out. These types of changes in focus length tend to be reflected from the viewfinder and on substantial display screen right on the back of the camera.

The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
