The Non Sequitur: A "belief" based on testable science is not the same as having faith.

Threading Water: Emergency contraception is still MIA.

Balkinization: Accountability for military contractors. "When we talk about the “Geneva Conventions” and the “law of war,” we frequently lose sight of the fact that this entire body of international law is a distinctively American contribution."

PR Watch:Check in on "The Spin of the Day."

Think Tank Watch: There is no such thing as a conservative think tank. But then, "scholarship" is much easier when it doesn't need to be accurate. False comparisons are a favorite technique, as is outright bunkum. If all else fails, one can just buy an opinion.
