If you’re a regular reader of the blogs, you read about the honour kiling of a young woman in Iraq last week. Did you read anywhere else that she wasn’t murdered by Muslims? (Samhita at Feministing)

Helen from Blogger on the Cast Iron Balcony takes on the hyperbolic allegories being drawn from some spoilt brats refusing to share Lego in a preschool

  1. I forgot this one: Christianity’s Sins Against Science at Pharyngula – an uncompromising response from PZ Myers to a challenge from the disturbing Vox Day (otherwise it wouldn’t be so Christocentric).

  2. Thanks Tigtog, but I wouldn’t say I actually engaged with the Lego story. Simply pointed to it, lazily, from my chaise longue, with my mauve gloved finger, then went back to my G & T (as one does).
    Since I’m also too lazy to post a link post on CIB, could I also recommend this post by Chris Clarke at Pandagon.
