An op-ed in the NYTimes urges Obama to push harder for the DREAM Act: A Start on the Dream: "President Obama has been an overachiever on immigration enforcement, far outpacing his predecessor, George W. Bush, in swiftly racking up a million deportations. But on the other crucial part of reform — getting undocumented immigrants right with the law — Mr. Obama talks a lot but has done far too little."

Ugh, yes, this headline has been all over and was driving me crazy. So glad Fit & Feminist has a response: Endurance sports are risky and other sensationalist health headlines.

“Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.” - Frederick Douglass
