Circumstance has forced my hand
To be a cut price person in a low budget land
Times are hard but we’ll all survive
I just got to learn to economize

Low Budget – The Kinks
(h/t Top 10 songs about paying taxes)

This week’s winner is the fine satire by newest council member American Digest, The Barrel of GoogleRands about how hard it is to get ahead these days – and in the future too if every single government program considered by the Democrats is implemented. We might be headed for extended periods of low budgets.

On the non-council side the winning post is the historical tour de force, Fitzgerald: The New York Times, and That Business At the Cathedral In Cordoba at the Winds of Jihad. The post takes us through the shameful whitewashing of the Muslim world that the NYT foists upon its readers. As Sheikh Yermani observes, to portray Cordoba as a multicultural Garden of Eden 900 years ago, requires some serious ignorance. Council friend Robert Avrech wrote the dialog for a short movie and comic book about Maimonides – or the Rambam – that dramatically illustrates how multicultural the Almohads were.
