The Blog Patrol (April 28, 2009)

police-fish

Welcome to this week’s installment of “The Blog Patrol.” I’ve tried to get back to the basics with this weeks’ Blog Patrol. In past weeks I have included more links for each day, but my goal with this process has been to include only the best posts. The problem I have been having is that there are so many good posts out there. That said, I have done my best to pick the best of the best for inclusion in the Blog Patrol, and tried to accept that that means that some good posts will be excluded. I hope that this process will help to keep the Blog Patrol more concise and useful to you the reader. If you have any suggestions for blogs that have not been featured in the Blog Patrol, please let me know. I look forward to hearing from you.
