Things to Read

If you can (not allergic to eggs etc) get your flu shot. Yes, really.

The Kindle edition of A Year of Biblical Womanhood: How a Liberated Woman Found Herself Sitting on Her Roof, Covering Her Head, and Calling Her Husband “Master” by Rachel Held Evans is $1.99 right now. I enjoyed it, and not just for the debunking of the “Wives are required by God to appear pretty/sexy” meme.  (Rachel is also the author of “How to win a culture war and lose a generation“, “15 Reasons I Left Church“, and “15 Reasons I Returned to The Church“.)

Guns do kill people (at least in the US) in one graph.

How the late Jack Klugman helped people get needed medical care.

The Fat Nutritionist post on “Stuff people assume I believe vs. stuff I actually believe” is cool, but it’s sad that it’s needed.  (See also comments on how if I keep exercising I’ll lose weight.  No, not necessarily, and that’s not the point anyway.)

And check out Barry Deutsch‘s take on “Reality Television“.

  1. I love Jack Klugman. One of my all time favorite actors and human beings. I recall this quote from him, which made me laugh. I’m paraphrasing, but it went something like this.
    “When I was younger, I put much of my energy into my acting, wanting to be my best, perhaps even hoping for an award. Now that I’m an old man, I figure things are going pretty well if I have a good night’s sleep, a good breakfast, and a good B.M. What more does anyone need?”
    Rest in peace, good sir!
