The Thinking Bloggers

Blogger Postman Patel , with his undeniable good taste and usual charm, has given me a "Thinking Blogger Award."

The Thinking Blogger Award rules are:
1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think.
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme.
3. Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote.

So, it gives me great pleasure to accept this award and I want to thank the academy … oops wrong note … ahem … I happily accept this award , and thank you members of the meme, thank you, and I want to thank my late mom and dad and my children and my loving husband without whom I could never .…

(This kinda reminds me of those e-mail chain letters, but hey every toot of my horn makes me feel good.)

I realized the blogs I read are on a much shorter list than my list of State controlled news, books, boring government reports, etc. The blog links, on this page to the left, I check regularly, and consider them all thinking bloggers. Other blogs - not linked on KAB but in my favorites toolbar - I read because they provide insight into opinions that I don't usually hold with; I do less thinking if comfortably surrounded by those who think the way I think; if agitation can produce a pearl - I'm working on a gem.

With that said, KAB proudly presents Thinking Blogger Awards to:

Black Agenda Blog. Great writing on issues for Black America.
The Blue Voice. A view to the mind of liberal John & Jane Mostly Whitefolk.
Milfuegos. His 'complete profile' is more secretive than mine.
Umkahlil. Excellent blog on Palestine.
Postman Patel. Uses the F-word as often as I would like to.

Thanks for the love. We really do appreciate it, all of us. There are four of us that do the regular editing and writing at Black Agenda Report, and we try to put out a product of consistent quality. Thus far all the "blog" posts are intros to stories which are done in full at, our other site.

We probably will not be doing the meme thing right away only because it's a break from the policy of all blog posts being full stories on that other site. But who knows --- that policy could change in the next couple weeks.

Nice joint you got here.

Hi Bruce,

BAR is a favorite of mine, had to meme you. Used to go to Black Commentator regularly but after the editorial board came in I seem to read less BC ...

Congratulations, and well deserved. Although it would have been a lot more fun watching you give your academy-like acceptance speech sporting one of those plummeting decolletages that are all the rage this year.
