Echidne suggested that I share this:
This morning I read a story about a rape in the NYT that unfortunately (but, alas, not incredibly) , made me lose faith in humanity before I'd even rubbed the sleep from my eyes. The details are here.
Then there's this from Fox News.
Finally, I like this video, but as I watch it, I have a hard time forgetting that the Bond movies trade consistently in two "isms", specifically sexism and sadism.
Update: With regard to the first link, Echidne just sent me this link to an online petition demanding an apology from the NYT.
