Lazy linking

Again a few links that I thought might be of interest to others.

Mike over at Tangled Up in Blue has a Spontaneous Carnival of Modern Logic

Paul Krugman's newest op-ed in NY Times: Rove’s Third Term
Seems like McCain is just a continuation of Bush in just about every way.

National Post has an article on Islam's original feminist. Depressing how little has changed in the last 100 years.

Over at Feministe, Jill writes about the death of Jesse Helms: I’m not one to be happy someone’s dead, but.

Also at Feministe, guest-blogger Ashley, posted two important links in her goodbye post.

The first is this series, of articles and videos in Slate, on the myths of biological differences between men and woman.

The second is this link to a database over school sexual assault policies, maintained by Students Active For Ending Rape (SAFER).

A lot of you probably already know this, but the great skeptic site Skepchick has a teen branch now: Teen Skepchick. One of the teen bloggers there, is the brilliant Splendid Elles.

The 90th Skeptics' Circle is up at The Millenium Project

There is a new link aggregation on nature blogs, called Nature Blog Network. Perhaps aggregation is the wrong word, rather it could be called a ranking system. Anyway, it's a handy place to get links to the top nature blogs out there.

ERV takes on the newest over-optimistic story about a soon-to-be-had AIDS cure: Personalized HIV therapy within reach?

Thanks for including Tangled Up in Blue Guy, Chris, and thanks for leading me to Paul Krugman's article. I only hope that his conclusion that Obama's campaign is now moving towards showing a spine is correct. I know that it is important to react quickly, which is a lesson that Kerry refused to learn; it is equally important for the reaction to be one of attacking the propaganda machine for its falsehoods and distortions to finally show the rest of the electorate what David Brock exposed in Blinded By the Right.

I meant, of course "Thanks, Kris." :)

You're welcome Mike, thanks for making that carnival. Quite some interesting posts there.

Blinded By the Right was a real eye-opener for me. I did believe that there was some kind of coordinated effort to discredit the Clintons, but it was not until I read that book, that I understood how organized it was.

Like you, I hope the Obama campaign have learned from the last two elections, and will attack the falsehoods and distortions from the start. They are not doing too well so far, but one can hope that they'll improve.
