How the pock did that work? I just stumbled across that site and posted a link on my blog - - and then I discover that someone on my blogroll has done the same thing. Bizarre!

No Mystery really.
People tend to put blogs on their blogroll which they find interesting (to state the obvious). Most times, this is because they agree with them. Sometimes it's because they differ, but respect the opinion of the other person on something important. In either case, they have similar interests.
2 people with similar interests will occasionally find the same interesting URL, and chances are, they'll blog it.
About a year ago, I posted 3 articles, and Glenn Reynolds on Instapundit covered the same 3 issues within 4 hours. Close examination of the timestamps showed proof we couldn't have copied from one another, sometimes he'd posted a few minutes before I did, sometimes vice-versa.
