A few carnivals of note this past week:
Leading off at the top of the order, The Carnival of Baseball Blogs had its second edition and is off to a promising start. Given the winter we've been having in the Northeastern US, it could well be time for spring training.
The History Carnival was at Acephalous this week, and featured a post by my friend Lars Smith on Johnny Appleseed's Business Model. It wasn't all flour sack shirts and tin pot hats for this early American entrepreneur, and Americans liked their apples hard and wet.
The early modern edition of Carnivalesque deconstructs the cavalry charge and shows that despite what modern historians may believe, it was not all "shock and awe". I could have told them that given my brief and inglorious history in a troop of Confederate horse.
