huffington post has some of the best coverage i've seen of the situation in iraq - http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/06/13/iran-demonstrations-viole_n_215189.html (does anyone else feel like they're seeing parts of tiananmen square again, only without the news networks paying any real attention to the story?)

badastronomy with more on the fallout from the oprah newsweek piece and other unproven medical claims... http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/badastronomy/2009/06/16/what-a-week-for-alt-med-smackdowns/

from ashbet "Kate Harding's fabulous article regarding the way that women who choose not to have children are treated by the far right -- the same arguments that are trotted out for pro-choice women. It's all about whether or not we deserve the right to control our own fertility -- period."
http://www.salon.com/mwt/broadsheet/feature/2009/06/15/childless_by_choice/index.html - yet another take on the earlier discussion i linked regarding gay marriage and abortion really being about a woman's right to control her life... (see http://alumiere.livejournal.com/315186.html if you missed it)

I've heard of lot of newsbites comparing to T-square, but they just had (and covered up) the anniversary

Yeah, that article's some bullshit. :/ I wish it was none of anyone's damn business whether we choose to spawn or not. GREAT Salon article, thanks for posting. I'm always happy when friends have children, when that's what they want & it makes htem happy. But I get seriously aggravated with the whole assumption that becasue I don't, there's something missing in my life. Or, becasue I don't want them, I'm a selfish, unfeminine person.

It's always about someone wanting to control women's lives & resproductive choices. *sigh*
