Bits and Pieces - August 8, 2010

Albert Einstein on the meaning of this atomic weekend (Friday was the 65th anniversary of Hiroshima, tomorrow Nagasaki).

I will miss Tony Judt and his writing very much.

What religion is doing to ministers and, perhaps, why.

Jonathan Capehart shares yet one more of his fears with us to emphasize that either we have total naked screening of all passengers or all airplanes will fall out of the sky.

Dana Milbank continues to try to be a responsible columnist.

Gary Sick on Iran. And the Iranian lawyer who defended that woman who was to be stoned seeks asylum in Norway. (h/t to Parvati Roma for the second.)

Could this be part of the reason sperm counts are going down?

The state of California and the city of San Francisco are coming down on the side of gay marriage in the Prop 8 case. And how it feels to a newly-married, long-together couple. Meanwhile, Fox News finds that a large majority of "the people" think that Prop 8 is unconstitutional. Let's hear that from all those pundits who keep telling us what "the people" think. Sarah?
