Bits and Pieces - August 31, 2011

The war on women continues.

Just wondering: anyone making this kind of stink about subsidized Viagra? To ask the question is to answer it.

A skirmish won. J. C. Penney seems no longer to be selling this shirt, designed to teach young women their proper place in life according to some.

And it's encouraging to see young women starting to recognize that, yeah, things can slip backwards.

Meanwhile, money may not be the answer either. Duh. Here's some more thought on why it's never enough for some people.

The media can't give up the freakshow. And hey! There's nothing else going on in the world. Actually, this week is blessedly calmer than most lately. Knock wood.

Even some good news!

Finally, I haven't had a chance to look at the paper this article describes. My immediate reaction is that I'll bet it's the change in mood that provokes creativity rather than the anger itself. It would be gratifying to be able to think that this morning's irritations have contributed something.
