It’s a Mansfield Metcalf edition of the Montana Blog Roundup, highlighting some of the most interesting and provocative posts in the past week at Montana blogs. The best line of the night came from Paul Begala, who attributed this quotation to Mitt Romney: “You like country music? Well, I know people who own countries.” That said, these are a few of the best posts of the week.
D. Gregory Smith wrote an absolutely outstanding post about Pope Benedict’s call for a culture war against LGBT persons and his personal response.
The Button Valley Bugle examined the reasons why bull trout populations are in decline across the state and suggested a citizen response.
Pete Talbot handicapped Montana’s Congressional contest, a race that, based on conversations last night, needs to get more attention.
Former (and most likely future) Helena School Board candidate Barb Rush offered a grammar-free critique of teaching children that we live in a community of mutual support. For as we all know, a sense of community is assuredly a step towards a Stalinist dictatorship.
