Firstly, there's Freedom and Whisky - a libertarian blog I came across during a stroll down Third Avenue. I'm adding it, not because I'm likely to agree with it's pro-Freddie Hayek stance, but because such a position at least makes a refreshing change to the dreary West of Scotland consensus.
This at UK Commentators made me laugh. I read one of AL Kennedy's novels after quite liking one of her short stories - and now regret it; these are hours in my life I will never get back. When I saw she had a column in the Grauniad, I thought: "why?"
Foolishly, I then read it.
