The Business Rusch: Midlist Writers (Changing Times Part 11) — Kris Rusch with some detailed comments on the fate of midlist writers in trade publishing these days. I see myself in this mirror, unfortunately. (Thanks to daveraines.)

George W. Bush and the Question of Authorship — An interesting squib about the art and theory of book reviews.

Adventures of the mind — Skepchick on the serendipity of travel and a slice of cultural history and medical weirdness. (Thanks to lt260.)

SMBC on tolerance — This cracked me up, hard. And is often the case with SMBC, the mouseover is a scream, too.

Get Fuzzy on muppets, squid and the race card — Yeah, it's that strange.

Reagan gave Medicare the Tea Party Treatment — Coz, you know, conservatives have been right every time about creeping socialism. Kind of like how Christianists have been right every time about the date of the Rapture. Come to think of it, exactly that right.

Scalia: Women Don't Have Constitutional Protection Against Discrimination — More conservative thought leadership from a strict constructionist who believes the Constitution says whatever he wants it to say, but not what anyone else wants it to say.

Rep. Darrell Issa's wild accusations are hurtful - to his own reputationREP. DARRELL ISSA (R-Calif.), incoming chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, says he misspoke when he called President Obama "one of the most corrupt presidents in modern times." Rather, Mr. Issa now says, Mr. Obama has merely presided over "one of the most corrupt administrations." Yeah, I can see that. Cooking intelligence to start a trillion dollar war of choice against a country that didn't attack us. Burning a CIA agent for political gain. Torturing prisoners against US and international law. Writing crooked contracts to a company in which the Vice President has a substantial financial stake. Yes, those Democrats are definitely bad news.

The Tea Party and Foreign Policy — A conservative analysis of the tension between strict constitutionalism and aggressive globalism.

For the record, by the way, though it's nowhere near the central point, your statement that At the time that the 14th Amendment was passed, women were not allowed to vote in any State of the Union, and never had been allowed to vote isn't true. New Jersey initially allowed women to vote with their state constitution of 1776, but rescinded that later in 1807, restricting it to white men.
