I know some people don't like to be pigeonholed, and reality is sometimes much more complex than we would like when we want to categorize, but I suspect my list of unclassified political blogs could be shortened if I knew a little more about some of the blogs in there that I look at from time to time but don't know the way a more regular reader would. Shortening isn't necessarily the goal, but I want to be accurate in placing blogs according to perspective if that perspective is one I single out for its own section in my blogroll. So I'd appreciate if anyone wouldn't mind taking a look at that part of my blogroll to see if you think any of those sites could accurately be classified as libertarian, conservative, liberal, or some other label. I'm not moving the Iraq War Was Wrong blog, because I believe that to be a deliberate conservative parody of liberal attitudes toward the war, which is itself a complicated enough situation that I want it where it is, but I believe anything else there is open for moving if I come to see that it belongs somewhere else.
I'm also looking to expand the blogroll on race. I've found a few intelligent moderate blogs on race (particularly among Latino bloggers), but I'd even list liberal ones that I find intelligent. It's overemphasizing conservative and moderately conservative blogs at the moment, and I want it to be at least a little more representative. So I'm accepting recommendations for that. If you appreciate a blog that regularly deals with race issues (even if it's not the only topic covered by the blog), let me know.
The third request is for any sites you know that you think would be good additions to the academic blogs list. I don't want political blogs there, even if they're run by political science professors, and the philosophy blogs have their own section, but any other ones that you think could count as academic blogs are open for consideration. I have to find the site at least somewhat interesting, largely inoffensive, and intelligent enough to be worth considering a good academic blog. In some fields this will involve higher standards than others. Any recommendation is welcome, even if I don't ultimately use it.
