Found a couple of more cool blogs thanks to MetaFilter links. First is NewsTrolls which is pretty comprehensive about world, eco, etc. Also a pretty interesting four column design which I wonder how she/he updates. Evolt.org is primarily for web designers, but it has an interesting design. I swear I could spend days just looking at these things. There must be something I can do with this passion, huh? Maybe write a column for Wendy? What a good husband I would be.
Here is a really interesting article comparing the burqa to the bikini. An excerpt:
“Taliban rule has dictated that women be fully covered whenever they enter the public realm, while a recent US television commercial for ”Temptation Island 2” features near naked women. Although we seem to be winning the war against the Taliban, it is important to gain a better understanding of the Taliban’s hatred of American culture and how women’s behavior in our society is a particular locus of this hatred. The irony is that the images of sleek, bare women in our popular media that offend the Taliban also represent a major offensive against the health of American women and girls.”
And, the reason that I love metafilter.
