New posts on the Weekly Sift appear on Mondays, usually sometime around noon. (That’s what makes it weekly.)
The last post of each batch (which consequently sits at the top of the blog all week) is the weekly summary. The weekly summary has a title that reflects the theme of the week and begins with a thematic quote. That’s followed by a list of the other posts of the week and a one-or-two-line summary of what each one is about.
Each week has 1-3 Articles. An article is my attempt to bring a little more depth or a new angle to some major issue. Each article is a separate post. (That’s new since the Sift moved to weeklysift.com from the old blogspot address. In the Archives prior to the move, each week is a single post.)
The Sifted Bookshelf is an occasional feature in which I review books related to the Sift’s area’s of interest — politics, government, economic or legal theory, and so on.
Short Notes is a collection of links to interesting things I ran across on the internet this week. They may be serious or funny or whimsical. A note might be anything from a line to three paragraphs — anything longer than that I usually promote to an article.
This Week’s Challenge is some small thing you can do or think about during the week.
