In which #1 puts up the links post despite #2 having all the links ideas this week

(aka, in which #1 is totally impatient and doesn’t wait for #2 to do things)
(Hey! the wee hours of Friday night is cutting it really short and I’m not sticking around Sat morning today.)
Let’s start it off with…

A heartwarming roundup from Roxie’s World.

A great post from Micro Dr. O on wouldn’t it be nice if we all had the option to give birth with a certified nurse midwife in a hospital with a doula?  We shouldn’t have to decide between a high chance of unnecessary c-section and an unmonitored home-birth.

Unshelved + Matilda + ebooks = hilarious.

NEW SIMON’S CAT!

Horrific.  This 19th century jackass is trying to force women in Georgia to submit police reports when a woman miscarries.  This goes right up there with Alaska’s push to force rape victims to pay for their own rape kits.  Feministe has the report and a suggestion, since it is absolutely true that the natural miscarriage rate is incredibly high, and higher still if you include fertilized eggs that never implant.

All you academic folks are probably well aware of the current hubbub surrounding the daily show clip on online education.  Here’s a link to Not of General Interest.  There were a ton more though.  But you know, I’m spending all day tomorrow with committee work and won’t have time to update them.  Maybe #2 can hook you all up.
(You mean like this?)

Happy Blogaversary, Everyday Tips!

Dame Eleanor Hull with a tribute to her late cat, the Scot.  RIP.

Politicians should be forced to take statistics and logic courses.  But they’d probably just lie anyway because they’re evil like that.  Also… Bristol Palin.  From Isis the Scientist.

A fascinating short tribute to Dr. Seuss from Philnel.  He did stuff besides children’s books!

Also, failed the writing challenge last Sunday because I was sick and dying.  I sat in this chair for 40 min without doing anything and didn’t realize that much time had passed until I looked at the clock.  Then I went back to sleep.

    No link to the original “daily show clip on online education”? The one on Sisyphus only mentions it tangentially and I can’t find the real one you’re referring to.

    Try where it says “You mean like this?” Academic Cog will hook you up.

    oh, ok- I thought that wasn’t it since it wasn’t about online education, just about shipping kids overseas… I figured it would be more about online education.
