Fortunately someone came up with a satirical response to that awful tree (among other worthy targets). Unfortunately, it wasn’t the only nonsense the women had to put up with this past week — from minor slights on women’s music to major concerns about women’s health and safety. But women have ambitions too, and they aren’t just taking it.
Meanwhile, in the world of politics, the GOP is having some fun in Utah and beyond. Romney has flipped or flopped on the religious test question. Apparently that whole Mormon vs. Christian thing is still not sorted out. On the other side of the aisle, people are discussing a variety of issues such as energy and the environment, communities, population growth, the War on Terror (including killing people without any semblance of due process), and, of course, the 99% — with accompanying ideas on wealth and economics.
In other news, Donna Banta had a great time with fellow bloggers in Utah. the Bloggernacle has further discussion of boundaries. Some studies should be taken with a grain of salt. Kiley (Sulli) has written a letter and invited others to write their own letters to the newly disaffected (with a good response). Laura is not happy with the overuse of the word “Nazi”. General Conference doesn’t always bring families together. Invictus Pilgrim celebrates one year in which “it got better,” and Runtu is celebrating his new book.
Whew, that’s it for this weekend! I hope I can find the time to comment on some of these posts, and maybe write another post of my own one of these days. But somehow all the stuff I have to do seems to barely fit into the week — do you ever have weeks (or stretches of weeks) like that? Hopefully the rest of you all have better time-management skills. 😉 Happy reading!
