Lance Mannion on Mukhtaran Bibi (start with Lance and go from there to get this whole unbelievable story). And while Lance notes that “we're spreading democracy and freedom everywhere we walk, like rose petals,” Francesca identifies the next stop on the Freedom-or-Else train.

John at Blogenlust on the unsurprising future of an ex-Bush admin official, and Gordon at Alternate Brain on Christians who decidedly don’t support Bush (or, by the sounds of things, any of his officials).

Jessica at Feministing on sowing the seeds of love. Meanwhile, Linnet looks at mandatory pregnancy. And Mike uses his well-hidden genius to dissect a cockroach. At least, its fertility, and how it’s apparently just like mine.

Republic of T on a small victory in Georgia for queer teens, and Mustang Bobby at Bark Bark Woof Woof on how the press conspires to drive us insane.

Plus, all the good stuff in the Wednesday Blogwhoring comments thread!
