Links, Links, and More Links

I decided I’m not going to cross-post the stuff at Feministe. No good reason except that it annoys me when I see it in my Google reader. I’m all “But I already read that!” and then I realize that it’s me. But you can read about my theories on anti-abortion folks here and 287(g) here (I have mixed feelings about the comments).

Ta-Nehisi Coates is hosting an interesting discussion about the weirdest piece of crap magazine article I’ve read in a while.

Here’s an article about True Blood. And I have to ask you, does it seem to end weirdly abruptly?

These kids sent me an email that says (and I am not even kidding), “It seems getting on blogrolls and sharing your blogroll space is a big part of this whole wordpress business, so we figured we’d start at the top and see if we could throw your site on ours and jump on yours.” I’m curious about what they mean by “at the top.”  Of all the blogs written by women whose name starts with B and who are aunts, is mine the best?  Do I come across like the internet’s dominatrix?  I don’t know.  But I wonder.

I admit, when I heard about this, I thought the name sounded kind of dumb, but I find how it looks to be so damn aesthetically pleasing–localolio–that I am completely willing to overlook that it could be something my mom used when trying to make “healthier” cookies. Also, I am sitting here at my desk quietly yodelling to to myself and it works very nicely for that.
