The Motley Fool's CAPS investing service is one of the newest additions to the investing community at Fool.com, and it's another great way for investors to work together to beat the market. One of the features in CAPS allows users to set up a blog to talk about their picks, investing strategy, market view, or their favorite ice cream flavor (if that floats their boat).

So what I've done is dug through all of the blog posts over the past week to bring you some of the best posts that are coming out of CAPS. Covering only seven posts here, there's no way I could hit all of the great stuff in the CAPS blogosphere, so when you're done here, I highly recommend checking out some more.
For those that haven't read my blog roundup before, floridabuilder is what I'd call a blog-writing All-Star (as opposed to a CAPS score All-Star, which he is as well).

Why I'm a better investor than you
OK, those aren't my words, but they are the words of fellow Fool TMFMarathonMan. While the statement could be true (he's a pretty sharp cat), there's more to his assertion than meets the eye.
The retail picture
Median housing prices falling
While floridabuilder has been busily arguing the bear case for the housing market over the next couple years, fellow CAPS player EScroogeJr has been just as busy arguing a bull case. Recent developments, however, appear to have put a bump in the road for his bullishness.
Green tea and gangster rap, who knew?
OK, so this doesn't have a heck of a lot to do with investing, except to highlight the great marketing of the beer and liquor industry, but I couldn't help but include the Tea Partay as brought to us by architeach74.
