Greetings, one and all. Quick roundup of news stories this Friday, though I invite you all (as usual) to share anything interesting that has crossed your path.
Happy Friday, one and all. I am looking forward to the weekend because my birthday is on Sunday, but yes, yes, let’s get to the actual news. Lots to cover, so let’s get started:
I don’t know about the rest of you, but it’s been a bit of a trying week, and though I’m covering some important-yet-distressing stories, I admit that I went out of my way to find the good stuff, too. We’re all in this together.
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.)
