I debated about posting this image, but hey, it's topical and it's posted before Lent.
Order the T-shirt here, but don't try to wear it on a Southwest flight.
Hey Jenny Slater again has a great post about one Ohio legislator's effort to ban Republicans from adopting. Blue Gal is all for it. If, God forbid, I should have to give up my cherubs to another, I would definitely pick Isaac Mizrahi over Rick Santorum.
If you want a fascinating perspective on things, look no further than Dena's new blog, Twisted Tongues. And before you get all panties on me, she's a translator, actually in the world of Middle Eastern translators she's somebody, and her writing and views are definitely worth the bookmark. Think of the importance of translating in this context:
...failure to include a translator in a delivery room team led to the unnecessary and tragic death of a baby only ten days old, as we’re told by the Saipan Tribune. Let me shout it out from the rooftops: “What’s your native language?” should be right on top of medical charts. Situations of pain and stress (childbirth leaps to mind and does somersaults for us) can lead to an inability to focus on skills acquired late in life. Heck, breathing is enough of a problem. Language should be a checkbox, not a problem, and no baby anywhere should die of this.
Yer blogrolled, babe.
BTW no medal in the Knitting Olympics for me. Didn't even finish the back. But maybe by Oscars.
Later this week in Blue Gal: Fat Tuesday Follies, book review of Anne Lamott's Plan B, and what not to give up for Lent (Blogging. Definitely not blogging.)
