Hopefully y’all haven’t seen many of these yet:
These Tea Party activists might be for some kind of limited government, but just not the kind that limits the US’ nuclear arsenal to ‘just’ 700 weapons launchers.
- Heather Murdock meets the hyena whisperers of Ethiopia.
- Robert Wright has a sharp take on the ‘Ground Zero Mosque’.
- Conn Hallinan on the ‘great myth’ of counterinsurgency.
- In Cameron, you can iron a girl’s breasts if you want to prevent her from developing and attracting men’s advances. There is a video attached; I couldn’t watch it.
- At Autostraddle, riese explains why Taylor Swift is a feminist’s nightmare.
- And a lighter note, what happened when Westboro Baptist Church made the mistake of picketing a comic book convention. If there is a God, nerds are her avenging angels.
Finally, I think my reading list is getting stale. Is there anything I should be reading? Anything I should be writing about? All tips/requests are welcome below the fold.
