  1. Re: Better to Speak
    Great article, but horribly sad that she had to go through that. She raises a lot of strong points for consideration.

    Re: Right Wing Watch
    Sounds like success to me! Way to go RWW!

  2. Wise Fool -- Indeed. I wanted to share the post from It Is Better to Speak because it was so powerful and insightful.

    As for Right Wing Watch, they have a special place in my heart. :)

  3. I read the abstinence article. Who wears a cape to dinner?

  4. Nurse Myra -- Superman, maybe? I don't know.

  5. Lots of great articles, as always. I'm astonished by the attempt at pro-bullying legislation based on religious conviction to do so, but I suppose I shouldn't be.

    Evangelical school cape-wearing at dinner? My guess is Hobbits.

  6. Michelle -- Thanks. I too was stunned by the bullying legislation, and the fingerprints of the Religious Right are all over the religious exemption.
