Winds of Change is a group blog, headed up by Joe Katzman. There are three excellent features which make this blog worthy of note: the writing quality and opinion diversity of the contributors, the writing quality and opinion diversity of the commentors, and the focus on events through series of posts by different authors and through recurrent features such as "Winds of War". Here, then, is a sample of recent posts:
