This past week was one where we finally saw a group of elected officials show some courage and leadership in Wisconsin. We also saw an 8.9 magnitude earthquake hit Japan and a tsunami sweep across the Pacific. Libya is still in chaos and oil is still on its roller coaster ride as more people feel the pinch of it at the pumps. We learned that when the Democrats passed ObamaCare, the preloaded $105 billion in spending for the next 10 years making it virtually impossible for the Republicans to defund. As for North Dakota weather, well we had another mini blizzard on Friday; but the outlook for this upcoming week looks much better; high 30s and low 40s. The one thing I did notice is the story about the ATF allowing weapons from the United States to flow across the Mexican border slipped off the radar. Virtually no major media outlet is investigating it or reporting on it as far as I can tell. I wonder why this is? I made my rounds and visited some great blogs providing some outstanding analysis on many of the headlines of last week. Below are a few of my favorite posts from this past week. This week’s theme is golf courses through the eyes of artists. So tee it up and enjoy a round at the LINKs.
