What did you read this week? Here’s what got us talking.
Here’s what we read this week:
I put these links together before the Hobby Lobby decision, and I’m sure much will be written about it this week. We’ll start off with Ginsburg’s dissent and then move on to the ladyblogland that was before SCOTUS made us all cry tears of rage.
Ladyblogland pointed me in the direction of some truly phenomenal writing.
I’m going to try a new format this week: bad news, good news. Hopefully we’ll all feel a bit more cheerful at the end of it.
No, really. Why? I feel like these 90 degree days in September are worth some discussion. No, you say? Fine. On with the news!
First things first: In case you missed it, a royal baby was born yesterday!
It’s only Wednesday and a lot has happened in the world. Well, a lot is always happening in the world. Just think about it, while you’re arguing with your coworkers about where to go for lunch, someone else is making a major arrest or unccovering a sinister plot.
Compared to last week, the news today is downright cheerful. And that’s not saying much, because it still makes me want to find an island populated entirely by kittens.
This week has been the worst. THE WORST. And it hasn’t gotten better.
You have two choices: read the news and stop after the first course, or, read through until you get to the story of the adorable otter.
I feel like we read all of this last week: mergers, business deals, horrible everything? But this week we have puns.
It’s news! It’s not good! Life still goes on.
I always find that bad news can often be redeemed with a tiny bit of good news, such as women being allowed in combat positions or learning that carbs are a key player in evolution. So read on, knowing there will be some bad. But there will also be some good. And carbs.
If the news is to be believed, we’re making less money and our kids are getting less fat. Most importantly, A MONKEY GOT LOOSE IN IKEA.
