This list of recommended blogs was not easily come by and apart from my own web research, I thank Mr Denmore (The Failed Estate), for sending me on a journey. These blogs will appeal to broad-minded thinkers; beware, several use expletives. Some are very learn-ed or learned as Homer Simpson might say. A few will lead you on to other blogs and in-depth reading. If Van Badham still had a blog, she’d be on here too. Try The Guardian.
