Keeping Women in Science on a Tenure Track: "Single women without young children are roughly as successful as married men with children in attaining tenure-track jobs." Ugh. (Thanks for the heads up, PC)

"Why Jim Needs to Remain Huck Finn’s 'Nigger'" Recent edits are "abstinence-only education for race." Well said, ColorLines.

"It is good to be solitary, for solitude is difficult; that something is difficult must be a reason the more for us to do it." - Rainer Maria Rilke

“When people are sad, they don’t do anything. They just cry over their condition. But when they get angry, they bring about a change. When they get angry, they aren’t interested in logic, they aren’t interested in odds, they aren’t interested in consequences. When they get angry, they realize the condition that they’re in- that their suffering is unjust, immoral, illegal, and that anything they do to correct it or eliminate it, they’re justified.” - Malcolm X
