I’ve been tagged with a meme by a blogger who has just come to my attention. Apparently I make someone think. Woo-hoo!

Of course, I have to come up with five bloggers who make me think. It’s not like Scot McKnight, Rich Vincent, or Brian Keene need anymore blog love. So how about:

Anthony Smith

Rod Garvin

Wrath James White

Matt Cardin

Marc Davidson

And though I wish Lauren David and Andre Daley wrote more often, Jay Lake actually blogs more than I do.

Also, I took a look at Don Imus, then Reverends Sharpton and Jackson, and I wrap up my take on this whole mess by examining the role of hip hop in our culture with my Intake column “I Used to Love HER”.

If you want to make sure that I see your comment or just want to stop by and say hi, feel free to do so on my message board. I apologize in advance for some of my regulars.
