Sidebar Shakeup

For the first time since 1987, I have updated the Rainbow of Flavaz blogroll. As you know, making the ROF list is a coveted prize for those blogs and bloggers who have the right stuff. We select only the best to appear there, and new denizens in the Rainbow of Flavaz can expect their traffic to bump up by about 2 unique hits per day.

So what's new? Here's a summary:

Perennial MilFer Night Writer makes the list, as does Speed Gibson. I would have put these guys on sooner, but I feared that updating the blogroll too frequently might ruin the ROF's mystique.

Even though he updates once a year, Surly Dave gets the nod. It would be a travesty to leave the Master of Sausages off the list.

I culled out a lot of the "dingleberry" blogs; that is, blogs that are either dead or seldom updated, but keep on hangin' on in the ROF because of my neglect. So Captain's Quarters, The Attic and a host of others have been shown the door.

Finally, I have removed Centrisity from the blogroll until such time that Flash stops being a bellicose kool aid-besotted blabbering idiot. It's really been sad to see this once OK blogger lose all perspective.

However, there is a silver lining. Centrisity's departure opens up the coveted Token Liberal Slot on the ROF. And since I'm feeling generous, I'm going to add another. (Is it still a "token" if there's two?)

Anyhoo, Discordian Stooge gets the first nod. He's a militant atheist and a degenerate Vikings fan who's frequently blasphemous. However, he's also one of the few lefties with a blog who's often intentionally funny.

The other slot goes to Power Liberal, the other leftyblogger who can be intentionally funny. Plus she's got a cute baby girl and a camera with a big memory card.

I'm a sucker for baby pics.

(Cute babies. Don't start sending me pictures of that Predator's Spawn that you call your grandbaby in hopes of getting on the most exclusive blogroll in Minnesota. It won't happen.)
