We haven't had a blog roundup for a week or so, so let's do one.

¡No Pasarán! has a whack at the EU; also look for many smaller posts on the French election. Eursoc, meanwhile, carves up François Bayrou. By the way, Barcelona's own huge egotist, Pasqual Maragall, is trying to float some kind of international Euro-progressive party that would include Bayrou. I'll believe that when I see it.

Angie Schultz neatly disposes of an anti-gun-nut.

The Big Chorizo has a good roundup of links on what he's calling the Spanish real-estate crash, along with some opinions. Ibex Salad has more.

Playing Chess with the Dead is keeping up with the Madrid bombings trial, and has all the details.

Pave France toasts cowardly French policy in Afghanistan. There's a lot more here, so check it out.

Akaky is one of the best satirists in the blogosphere.

The Brussels Journal scalds hypocritical Euro-Greens.

Colin Davies has a three-year compilation of his posts on the EU.

Expat Yank blasts a lousy BBC piece that fails to explain anti-Americanism around the world.

LA-Madrid Files has more on America-bashing reactions to the Virginia Tech murders.

Guirilandia rambles about contemporary Barcelona, and includes a photo of a typical chapuza. He's also got a hilarious post about the dumbest hash dealer in Catalonia.

Notes from Madrid gives some anti-pickpocket safety advice, along with a first-person story.
