New Link and Recommendations

I have added a link to Sydney Kendall Says to the Pro-Reason Links section of this blog.
Check out her blog when you can! Sydney’s articles are eloquently written and very thought provoking! She’s brought up excellent topics for discussion – from international affairs to the issues pertaining to Hurricane Katrina. 🙂

Martin, thank you for sharing a link to an article on TIA Daily by Robert Tracinski titled – An Unnatural Disaster: A Hurricane Exposes the Man-Made Disaster of the Welfare State. I’m sorry I missed his radio interview the other day.

I’m so glad the season premiere for House begins on September 13th!

Today in History

September 8th was the Siege of Leningrad (Saint Petersburg).

Someday I would love to visit several of the “Hero Cities” in the former Soviet Union.
It would be amazing to be able to visit the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts!
Also, life would not be complete without visiting the cities and landscapes which inspired various authors such as:

*Fyodor Dostoyevsky
*Alexander Pushkin
*Ayn Rand (an inspiring American)
*Leo Tolstoy

As I continue to study Russian language, I will share another excellent link to Study Russian Literature online.

Film recommendations for today:
*Doctor Zhivago based on a novel by Boris Pasternak
*Enemy at the Gates
*Onegin based on a novel by Alexander Pushkin ! directed by Martha Fiennes, starring her brother Ralph Fiennes.

My pick for quote of the day – “Some men go through a forest and see no firewood.” ~English Proverb
