Things I Read This Week

We lost three incredible activists among the victims of the Haiti earthquake.

Miranda discusses the arbitrary determination of adulthood in the US on her eighteenth birthday.

Jenna dissects and discredits the "logic" behind PETA's marketing and its founder's excuses.

Elizabeth Gettelman talks about the Focus on the Family Super Bowl Ad in the larger context of football and the special status of quarterbacks - of which I know nothing about.

And in the "hope for the rest of us file": Orangutans have learned to be mediators.
