I am debating rotating at least some of these blogs out at the end of the month because quite frankly this is just depressing. Then again, I suspect it would be just as depressing with other blogs.

Helpful tips on raising your grade:
"Photobucket" is not meaningful alt text. But all you have to do is
replace it with some that is when you paste the link into your post.
WAVE is very very helpful
So is Vischeck
