Comics, Birth Control, and Sour Grapes

A couple of linky-links you might find interesting:

The fabulous Jill Pantozzi hit the nail on the head in her assessment of the DC Comics Neilsen survey about the New 52 over at The Mary Sue. Check it out, and marvel (no pun intended) at the willful mediocrity.

The Daily Beast reports about Obama’s intelligent compromise between accessible birth control for women and the religious employers who would deny coverage of birth control to their employees.

Employers should have no say in an employees decision to have children. Period.

Someone call the whaaaaaaaaambulance. Karen Handel, after (thankfully) resigning from the Susan G. Komen foundation called Planned Parenthood a “gigantic bully” for starting a “campaign” that got people all riled up against Komen. (also from The Daily Beast)

I hate to break it to you, Ms. Handel. PP didn’t have to start a campaign. It’s just that a lot of people DISAGREE WITH YOU. Hopefully, now that you’ve got a freer schedule, you’ll be able to reflect on exactly how you went wrong and maybe do something about keeping your personal beliefs out of how you handle an organization’s money.
