Selected reading (02/06/09)

So I’m going to start dating my link dumps, since I only just realised that it must be really confusing just seeing the same post title over & over again, but with different content.

Sorry if it gets a bit quiet ’round here this week; there’s quite a few little jobs that I can’t afford to put off any longer, and then I’m spending the weekend in Bristol for a friend’s pre-wedding festivities. Yes, I mean ‘stag weekend’, but I don’t think the name stag really applies to me – if I were to star in a remake of Bambi, I’d probably be cast as Thumper. Anyway…

  • Mark Easton reports on the BBC’s poll of public attitudes towards politicians.
  • On MPs expenses, David Aaranovitch believes he’s ‘got it’, and will now explain how you, lowly peasant, can ‘get it’, too.
  • The BNP stay classy, intimidate Church-goers.
  • Gareth Young writes to Lib Dems about constitutional reform.
  • From the department of really stupid questions: Is it wrong to murder an abortionist? Feministe’s Jill Filipovic responds.
  • Feministing highlights a new report about mothering in American women’s prisons.
  • Dean Baker pours cold water on those ‘economic recovery’ stories.
  • M.J. Rosenburg reports that Congress’ Likud Democrats are already telling Obama to back off Israel
  • Scott Morgan on the US’ politically-charged attempt to extradite a Canadian marijuana activist.
  • And The Onion discovers that those gays are a devious bunch.

  1. Nah, Friend Owl.

    I doubt the Great Prince of the Forest would tolerate a safety car on his Pre-Wedding Festivities – which, by the way, sounds like an accounting acronym. [Insert expenses joke]. Inappropriate.
