This article on the burnout faced by female activists reminded me of so many of my inspiring women friends. Take care of yourselves while saving the world, ladies! (Thanks for the link, PC)

A little street art humor. I like.

Immigration developments and challenges in my town: Ashland Daily Tidings: "Bill would allow undocumented students to pay in-state tuition"

Today's planned workout: bootcamp. Today's actual workout: bootcamp, 90 min Bikram, soccer game.

"Rape is rape, whether in a federal prison, a local lockup, or an immigration detention facility": "President Barack Obama should direct the Justice Department to apply Prison Rape Elimination Act standards to detainees in US immigration facilities, Human Rights Watch and 10 other organizations said today in a letter to the president." via Human Rights Watch.

Interesting project on Etsy: Alyson Provax's exacting inventories of her wasted time.

More from Etsy: I'm not normally a jumper fan, but this one is awesome! Makes me even more excited for summer (and I'm already damn excited).

I thought I was continuing my reading of all the 2011 Edgar Award nominees, but it doesn't appear my current read - Necessary As Blood - is on the list. So I have no idea how I decided to read it. Ha! Nonetheless, it's a decent read so far.

I really enjoy reading your posts. You always have a thought provoking article (or 5) and inspiring quotes. I love coming here. Thank you for writing.

I hope the tuition equality bill passes. It would make me very proud of our state.
