Progressive EducationLast month Juneau County (WI) District Attorney Scott Southworth sent out 24 letters to top officials in the county 5 school districts telling them to suspend sex education classes in their schools or face possible charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Don't you love conservatives?

Glenn Greenwald on the Iraq massacre video — This story is worth following regardless of your politics or your views on the Iraq War. This is what we do to people.

Heritage!The Edge of the American West on the conservative celebration of insurrection and the good old days of slavery. Confederate heritage is not a noble thing, and I say this as a son of the South. And yes, Governor McDonnell walked it back. Credit where credit is due.

[cancer] Infusion tomorrow

Going in to the infusion center this morning to have my bloodwork done a day early. I will be doing this from now on, as we face the increasing likelihood of a postponement due to being too deeply immunocompromised. Tomorrow is chemotherapy session seven of twelve.

In other news, calendula_witch has her real estate inspections today. shelly_rae and the_child did some serious bonding yesterday, which is much to the good. For my part, I managed another solid tranche of writing yesterday on "The Stars Do Not Lie", but I won't get it done before I go under the needle. And looks like I'll be announcing another short fiction sale soon.

So, yeah, life goes on.
