friday collection

August 5, 2011

I thought I’d mimic a couple of my favorite bloggers (Dave Weigel and Adam Serwer) who often close the day with a list of links they think might interest their readers. So here’s some stuff I read this week that you might like:

In Women Who Kill Their Children news, we’ve got this case of a judge giving custody of another woman’s children to a woman who previously shot her own daughters.

Washington Monthly says only 21% of Americans call themselves liberal.

A judge temporarily blocked the de-funding of Planned Parenthood in Kansas.

Gloria Steinem doubts that the new TV show “The Playboy Club” will be as empowering to women as lead actress Amber Heard thinks.

The Department of Health and Human Services accepted the recommendation from the Institute of Medicine that birth control be covered by insurance as preventive care, and you can tell them what you think of that decision here.

Speaking of willpower, here‘s six ways to boost it.

And don’t forget American Medea, happening this Sunday and next at 3pm in LA.
