A selection from this morning’s Tweets

Neck playing up so avoiding typing, please forgive the linkfest. Greeting me when I opened my Seesmic this morning were these stories:

Good 1st Am. ruling: court dismisses Koch Brothers’ horrible lawsuit seeking the identity of those who satirized them: http://is.gd/eScSG6

phdinparenting:
1/2 Belkin’s post http://bit.ly/iQeLJe confuses gender identity issues with limitations imposed by gender roles. Two different things.
2/2 Being open minded and allowing your child to explore any/all interests/identitites is useful in addressing both, but they are not same.

However, I couldn’t find anyone saying anything sufficiently scathing and pithy about Newt Gingrich running for President (there are not enough FFS!s and AYFKM?s in the world). I’m presuming that he’s only seriously thinking that he could manage to slide into the Veep slot.

  1. UK govt proposing new university slots reserved for nation’s richest.
    So, our voting system sucks but the British are taking hints from our attempts to entrench a class system? Amazing!
