  1. Another great round up. Thanks!

    I feel Feather Adrift hurts her point a little by referring to the book from the 1930's. The passage she quoted is based off of Freudian psychology. Other than that, it is an interesting post.

  2. Loved the Tbogg piece. Made me want to rethink my hairstyle, maybe add some purple dye.

  3. I'm still scratching my head about the fact that the question about the candidates' respective positions on women's contraception was booed during the debate last night. Romney ("Life begins at conception") and Santorum - at the least - have clearly made women's contraception an issue. Why are their supporters so opposed to them being pinned down on their positions?

  4. Wise Fool -- Glad you enjoyed it. I've been visiting A Feather Adrift for some time, and I've enjoyed Sherry's posts immensly.

    Donna -- Go for it! Some screaming green would also be a nice touch.

    COgnitive Dissenter -- It was very strange to hear the crowd boo over the contraception question. Maybe it's a touchy subject for conservatives.
