Although I’ve just finished all my required job-related duties this morning, I’ve still got approximately eleventeen irons on the fire. So, in lieu of a proper post on any one topic, a series of links to things I’ve read recently and would love to tear into with y’all:
First: Gail Collins on John Boehner. Basically, IOKIYAR (and a dude).
Second: Hot on the heels of the student protests in London, University of Puerto Rico students are speaking out and marching against rising fees and falling opportunities.
Third: In case you need to calibrate your rage-ometer, a story about how NY’s Finest are juking the stats when it comes to rape and sexual assault.
Fourth: For a ray of hope…the European Court of Human Rights has decided that banning abortion violates women’s human rights.
Any links you want to share? Drop ’em in comments, and we’ll watch the mod queue.
