It was a pretty difficult news weekend; I tried to force myself to read more than just coverage of the Aurora shootings. As it turns out, there were some pretty insightful pieces written on Aurora, mainly on the need for gun control. I’ve included the best of what I read, along with a few other interesting articles and blog posts since last we spoke (and if nothing else, please read the last piece to which I linked–it’s pure happiness):
Don’t Get Sick in July (NY Times)
Why 6-Year-Old Girls Want to Be Sexy (NBCNews)
Subcommittee Urges VA to Update Military Sexual Trauma Adjudication Regulations (Invisible No More)
For some, ethics are a moving target (Globe and Mail)
There’s been an abundance of news related to the Aurora shootings. Some of the best of what I’ve read follows (because I’m a big believer in gun control; if you aren’t feel free to skip these):
The Template of Our Grief (The Atlantic)
On the Tragic Shooting in Aurora, Colorado (Mike Bloomberg)
We’ve Seen This Movie Before (NY Times)
One More Massacre (The New Yorker)
And for something on a much happier note, check out this lovely wedding announcement—the bride is someone I had the pleasure of hearing speak once at a conference several years ago.
