Oh, he was obviously such a terrorist!

Dr Peter Watts, Cana­di­an sci­ence fic­tion writer, beat­en and arrest­ed at US bor­der Obvi­ous­ly, sci­ence fic­tion writ­ers are scary peo­ple. And his rea­son for being in Nebras­ka in the first place (help­ing a friend move) was high­ly ques­tion­able, so it makes total sense that the bor­der patrol would search his vehi­cle. Get­ting out of the […]

I still have a hymen (or “vaginal corona”) ? And I thought I just had the box it came in!

Swedish group renames hymen ‘vagi­nal coro­na’ …(T)he term hymen is root­ed in the Greek word for mem­brane. Rather than a frag­ile mem­brane that breaks, how­ev­er, the hymen is actu­al­ly mul­ti­ple folds of mucous mem­brane. The vagi­nal coro­na is a per­ma­nent part of a wom­an’s body through­out her life. It does­n’t dis­ap­pear after she first has […]

“Go ahead, America. You don’t need us.”

“Watch all the top­soil go down the Mis­sis­sip­pi. Trans­port your chil­dren in bas­kets on top of your SUV death­mo­biles. Keep play­ing with your cute and cud­dly pal, the atom. Press your nose against the TV screen for even more edu­ca­tion­al 3rd Rock From The Sun enjoy­ment. Use plen­ti­ful gaso­line to burn book- read­ers at the […]

Why make an exception for rape and incest?

I always look for­ward to Dr. Mar­ty Klein’s Sex­u­al Intel­li­gence newslet­ters, so I was tick­led to see one in my inbox today. But one of the head­lines took me by sur­prise: End Rape & Incest Excep­tions to Stu­pak Abor­tion Ban. Dr. Klein always has excel­lent analy­ses, and this one is no excep­tion. If you’re against […]

Long Term Opiate Use Safe; One Woman’s Experience With Savella

There are two great arti­cles from Karen Lee Richards in Health­Cen­tral’s Chron­ic Pain Con­nec­tion newslet­ter today. The first, Long-Term Opi­oid Ther­a­py — What Are the Effects?, brings us the results of Dr. For­est Ten­nan­t’s ground-break­ing study. He eval­u­at­ed 24 chron­ic pain patients from 30 to 79 years old who had been using opi­oids for 10 […]

Stupak is back! Time to call your legislators again!

This time it’s in the Sen­ate, folks. In case you just crawled out from under a rock, I’m talk­ing about the Stu­­pak-Pitts amend­ment to the Afford­able Health Care for Amer­i­ca Act that was orig­i­nal­ly intro­duced in the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives by Demo­c­ra­t­ic Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Bart Stu­pak of Michi­gan and Repub­li­can Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Joseph Pitts of Penn­syl­va­nia, along […]

Whoops!

I’ve dis­cov­ered that my blog posts stopped cross-post­ing over to my Live­Jour­nal account at some point in Sep­tem­ber. Many of my more vocal friends actu­al­ly read my posts over there, so any­thing I’ve said since then might as well have been tossed into the bit buck­et. I’m going to rework those posts and re-do them. […]

That’s It. I’ve joined the cult.

Of the iTouch, that is. It start­ed rel­a­tive­ly inno­cent­ly. I got my first iPod this sum­mer, final­ly giv­ing up the wee lit­tle MP3 play­er that has served me fair­ly well for years. That and an old­er Palm PDA were all I need­ed, right? I mean, I’m not the pod­cast nut, and I’m at home most of […]

Music from Defying Gravity?

We’ve been watch­ing Defy­ing Grav­i­ty on Hulu, and enjoy­ing it. The music is one of the appeal­ing fac­tors, but I can’t find any infor­ma­tion about what songs by which per­form­ers are used in most of the episodes. TV.com has infor­ma­tion for two of them, but not the rest. I don’t sup­pose any of you know […]
