Read and comment on MPR's Weblogs. Here are some of my picks from recent entries:

* "If there were a reliable test that could predict Alzheimer's, would you take it and would you want to know?" Bob Collins is dealing in DNA.

* In the Loop's Jeff Horwich found former Congressman Tim Penny on MySpace. Naturally, that's because Tim Penny is in a rock band.

* Learn about meteorology on Updraft. Some elements include location, location, location. And Timing.

* The Current's Steve Seel wonders if anybody really likes Christmas music. (hat tip Michael Wells)

* On Movie Natters, Euan Ker is dishing on some local fun!
