Aw, poor widdle terrorist!

I know you’re all torn up to hear that Eric Rudolph is mis­er­able in prison. “Using soli­tary con­fine­ment, Super­max is designed to inflict as much mis­ery and pain as is con­sti­tu­tion­al­ly per­mis­si­ble,” he wrote in a let­ter. No, real­ly? That’s part of that whole deter­rent fac­tor, ya know? Jail isn’t sup­posed to be a vacation. […]

Every­one, regard­less of age, can get EC at Planned Par­ent­hood — and now, for peo­ple 18 and old­er, EC is avail­able over the […]

Have you bought emergency contraception?

I just read about it at Sex in the Pub­lic Square. I haven’t thought about it before, but what she says makes sense. If you’re a sex­u­al­ly active adult who could tech­ni­cal­ly con­ceive, but you don’t want to have a child right now, it’s a good thing to keep on hand. I’d be inter­est­ed in hearing […]

In Dallas? Wear your seat belt!

Being hauled out of school in hand­cuffs because of a $50 seat-belt tick­et was bad enough for Lan­cast­er High School music teacher There­sa Dobbs. She had no idea what was yet to come. That seat belt tick­et — the only blem­ish on her dri­ving record — would result in a har­row­ing three-day stay in a crowd­ed holding […]

Baptist Church Votes Not to Accept Black Members

By way of Rebec­ca Blood­’s blog, more bad news on the civ­il rights front. The North­east Mis­sis­sip­pi Dai­ly Jour­nal reports that Fel­low­ship Bap­tist Church in Saltil­lo vot­ed on August 6 not to accept black mem­bers. In doing so, they rescind­ed a pre­vi­ous invi­ta­tion to join the con­gre­ga­tion that had been extend­ed to the fam­i­ly of […]

Bus driver orders black children to give up seats to white children

I feel like I’m stuck in a time warp. How could this hap­pen in 2006? From the Shreve­port Times, dat­ed August 24, 2006: COUSHATTA — Nine black chil­dren attend­ing Red Riv­er Ele­men­tary School were direct­ed last week to the back of the school bus by a white dri­ver who des­ig­nat­ed the front seats for white children.

What is network neutrality?

From Research­Buzz: “Net­work neu­tral­i­ty” (also called “net neu­tral­i­ty”) is the idea that an Inter­net access provider must pro­vide access to all parts of the Inter­net with­out prej­u­dice — with­out block­ing areas com­plete­ly, with­out slow­ing areas down, etc. Accord­ing to net neu­tral­i­ty, an access provider should treat all Inter­net traf­fic equal­ly no mat­ter what it is […]

The NSA is Wiretapping YOU and ME, Personally

This guy’s state­ment is just too good to hide. Every per­son in the US needs to pay atten­tion to this issue. Don’t just let it wan­der off the head­lines. It is very impor­tant. Not an AT&T cus­tomer? It does­n’t mat­ter. Inter­net traf­fic is rout­ed across switch­es and such in a man­ner that does­n’t care who […]
