Tit-for-tat

A cartoon, and links from yesterday’s Globe and Mail.

1.Margaret Wente: The GOP is obsessed with women’s bodies

2. Shelley Youngblut: Tit-for-tat: U.S. senator proposes Viagara restrictions

3. Judith Timsin: Pelvic politics: the Republican attack on women

My mother always said that it was rude to gossip, to ask personal questions, to discuss family issues, religion, politics, health or money. What else is amusing or interesting in life!?  She broke the rule, often, always apologetically, and I am glad to revisit in memory her witty and perceptive comments. Now these topics are front page news, but still risky and awkward to talk about, even with family and friends.

Mother may have been right (though never right-wing!) So I have made myself a promise that in my blog at least, I am going to give this issue a rest.

Tune in tomorrow for something completely different.
