[links] Link salad heads out for a rare change

Dads' Depression Linked to Kids' Behavior Problems — Well, duh. And this is one of the thing I worry a great deal about for [info]the_child; how my illness and my own responses to it distort her world.

Social Construction, Deviance, and What Time is it Again? — A squib on Daylight Savings Time from Sociological Images. I still don't buy all the moaning people do every year. Even if your sleep cycle is backloaded, go to bed an hour earlier. No different from staying up an hour later to see an evening movie or finish a book.

U.S. Navy fires the railgun that can shoot a missile 100 miles at eight times the speed the sound for the 1,000th time — Not to be confused with Big Bertha, of course.

J. Edgar Hoover Unmasked — I thought that horrid old closeted homophobic blackmailer had been unmasked years ago. He's right up there with Roy Cohn and Nancy Reagan on my list of Great American Mistakes Who Richly Deserve to Be Vilified in History. (And oddly, none of them was a liberal-progressive...)

Standing in the Schoolhouse Door — Conservative America shows its true colors yet again down in the Deep South. The amazing thing is these people have no shame whatsoever.

Deadbeat Rep. Joe Walsh, Who Owes $100k In Child Support, Receives ‘Pro-Family’ Award From Family Research Council — Yep, family values on the hoof. Honestly, you people are idiots. Does this even have a rational explanation in conservativeland?

?otD: Where are you going today?

Writing time yesterday: 0.0 hours (chemo fatigue)
Body movement: 30 minute stationary bike ride
Hours slept: 8.0 hours (badly interrupted)
Weight: 221.6
Currently (re)reading: Carpe Jugulum by Terry Pratchett
