Some quick links for a Monday

If you’re at all interested in following my feed (nothing to do with food, much) you’ll see I’ve been using that more recently to flag random stories of interest, usually mainstream media ones that I stumble across. Here are three I’ve just added right now, as examples:

  • A Washington Post story on modern feminism and sexual violence in India.
  • Another WP story, this one on John McCain, George W. Bush and how the former has to be seen as continuing from and totally distinct from the latter at the same time in order to succeed in the election.
  • An NY Times piece on the continuing impact of concussions as long-term injuries for troops who’ve served in Iraq. Essential reading.

In all cases the idea is not to say that each piece is deathless lit, merely something to note and keep in mind. There’s always more to learn, and consider.
