Sunday Foreign Post Roundup

1. Ever wonder what's really inside those huge command police vehicles?  Well, our own resident expert over at The Graveyard Shift has the answers!

2. A new-to-me blog and a perfectly written commentary on the cultural paradox that is women in society.  It's Culture Served Raw.

3. Shades of Racism at Thoughts from Botswana.  You must read this.

4. Gorebage: a fantastic new word and a great article by Margot Kinberg.

5. The environmental side of Avatar by The Cajun Book Lady.

6. Tabitha writes a writer's mantra: words to write by.


8.  How many Luigis? The price of art in human life, but author Timothy Hallinan.

9. This woman is on a creative streak!  I could put every one of her posts on here, but this one takes the cake this week: Elspeth Antonelli's Being a Writer.

Also--I missed it because Saturday is my No Post day (though I usually slip on and put up a picture and a blurb), but yesterday was Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's birthday.  He was in Scotland on May 22, 1859.  A belated Happy Birthday to the creator of one of the world's greatest fictional detectives.
