Arianna's blog mall Huffington Post is a mixed bag: mostly cool, it's got the loose and smart writings of Harper's contributing editor Thomas de Zengotita mixed in with seeming doofuses like Randall Robinson (who, without any supportive evidence whatsoever, asserted that "black hurricane victims in New Orleans have begun eating corpses to survive"). But my favorite writer is the prolific Harry Shearer. Best known as the voice of Mr. Burns (and others) on The Simpson's and Derek Smalls in (and co-writer of) This Is Spinal Tap, his incisive, well-researched, and frequently updated HuffPo blog is here. And here's his personal site.
