  • – From Hullabaloo, who still haven’t got their coding fixed to serve up their headings: “But aside from efforts to brush away anti-abortion activists as yesterday’s news, there’s another misconception that must be addressed in the wake of Tiller’s murder: the idea that a “compromise” on abortion policy that eliminates “controversial” abortions like those performed by Tiller will make the risk of violence–yea, even the conflicts over abortion–go away. That is dangerous nonsense.”

  1. Thanks for the link, Tigtog. It’s something I’ve been turning over in my mind for a couple of years now, ever since I read about cake whispering, and the absurdities from the Professor and tbe blogger finally pushed me into writing about it.
