I’m very much enjoying the discussion about feminism in the previous post, so I’m reluctant to start a new topic (and I still haven’t finished my essays on the subject). Instead, I will mention that I was on the News & Notes Blogger Roundtable again Monday. I had the pleasure of meeting Farai Chideya in person! (She was in town to attend the talk mentioned here.) It was really awesome to finally put a 3-D face to the voice, and she was very nice.
We discussed tracing ancestry through DNA, forced immunization of kids in Maryland, and a missing black student in Mississippi. On the last topic, I mentioned the Missing Minorities blog, but incorrectly stated that it lives at missingminorities.com. Eek! I came home to discover that some squatter owns that URL, and they most likely suck!
Anyway, it prompted me to change the Social Justice sidebar thing as I had intended to weeks ago and never did.
Follow the links above to listen to the audio. You should subscribe to the podcast if you don’t hear News & Notes on your local NPR station. It’s a great show. And they now have a blog, which I read but always forget to mention.
