Hillary is a giant nerd and former Mathlete. She once read large swaths of "Why Evolution is True" and a geology book aloud to her infant daughter, in the hopes of a) instilling a love of science in her from a very young age and b) boring her to sleep. After escaping the wilds of Waco, Texas and spending the next decade in NYC, she currently lives in upstate New York, where she misses being able to get decent pizza and Chinese takeout delivered to her house. She lost on Jeopardy.

Roe v. Wade turned 41 years old yesterday. Happy birthday, choice! Here’s hoping for many more. We’ve got some good news in the abortion fight, mixed news in advertising, and a bonus section on LGBTQ issues. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
