Digby and Atrios: best of the best

Hullabaloo.

Digby is the best blogger in the world: she lives in the L.A. area, and writes about economic issues, women’s issues, and authoritarianism in all of its forms. Her long-running campaign against indiscriminate use of tasers should alone qualify her for some major humanitarian award.

AND the other BBIW (best blogger in the world) has to be Atrios, an economist and civil libertarian, who keeps adding new terms and labels and slogans to the national political conversation, while explaining world economic and financial issues better than anybody else.

Two of my heros…you won’t find either of them selling out to AOL, as Huffington did in such an insulting way…

I’ve added permanent links to their blogs in the right margin. Click ‘em!
