Thanks to those who such as Irina, David, and others who submit posts they see around the blogosphere that I otherwise wouldn't... everyone else is welcome to do the same!
Quick note to Treppenwitz fans... he's moving to Treppenwitz.com, so update your blogrolls!
I am not going to link to anything about Arik Sharon, who should be blessed with a speedy refuah shleimah. There are many others who have far more comprehensive links with all the details about what happened, speculation on his health, discussion about Ehud Olmert, and speculation on the future of the State of Israel. The best two I've seen are SoccerDad & KesherTalk. I am going to wait a bit and see how things begin to shape up before I write about the future.
And now, on to today's roundup:
*Post of the Day*

The unemployment rate is at a 5-year low, having withstood the impact of the hurricanes (via Instapundit).
One man who may still be unemployed is the man the re-born Hasidic Rebel spoke to in Union Square. I've never read HR before, but after reading a few posts, I see why he was so popular.
Jameel notes what a number of us [not him] have in common. Can you guess what it is? (Answer in the comments!) He also discusses exposing his kids to danger, and why it's perfectly fine to him.Life:
