One of my favorite blogs is Cold Antler Farm. Jenna has managed to get me interested in something I never in a million years would've thought would interest me: chickens. Yes, chickens. I kinda want some. So I was pretty fascinated when I came across this article on Little House on the Southern Prairie.
And now for something completely different. An article on Slate about how many women still believe victims of rape are RESPONSIBLE FOR BEING RAPED. Because they were wearing something seductive, or were out too late, or had too much to drink, or went somewhere they shouldn't have gone. There's a significantly longer post to be written on this subject, but for now, it's an interesting-- and horrifying-- article.
I wanted to come up with all new blog-references this week, and not go back to anyone who was on last week's list. But then I read this post on The Art of Non-Conformity. Some things just need to be shared. So, this is me, dropping a key. (Which will make sense once you've read the article.)
Finally, can we, for just a moment, contemplate Roger Ebert? I love the man. Didn't really watch the thumbs up/thumbs down show. Haven't read many of his reviews. But you know what I do read? His blog. The man is an INCREDIBLE writer. And a beautiful person. I particularly loved his response to the Esquire article about him, but don't stop there. Spend some time. Check out the archives. And keep reading. This man's words are worth your time.
