Haveil Havalim:Number 97 A Sunday Special

Friends, Romans and Countrymen. Lend Me Your Ears. I don't know about you, but ever since I saw that Our Gang special I have wanted to say that.

It is entirely likely that this may be updated a couple of times through out the day. If you like HH we strongly urge you to place a link promoting it on your own blog.

One more thing in the category of shameless self promotion for the J-blogosphere. Treppenwitz, Elder of Ziyon, Dry Bones and my blog are all up for a Weblog award. Please go and vote for one of us.

You can find the voting for Treppenwitz and EOZ here, Dry Bones over here and the Shack here.
