The Corpus Callosum

Linkfest Monday II

I am not feeling well today, so here is a low-overhead (for me) set of
links.  Anything thoughtful that goes up here yesterday,
today, or tomorrow was written ahead of time, and scheduled.
 The last one was from science news.  This one is

on the War Crimes Act
[and another reason to think about

about routine HIV testing
.  State laws may have to

Variance picks up on the Tripoli Six
.  It was too
upsetting for me to blog about, but at least I can link to it.

posts something I meant to, but did not get around to
Organizers of Spain’s top annual fashion show, the Pasarela Cibeles,
rejected five models as being too thin to appear in this year’s event.

I actually thought about doing this, but decided against it
 Perhaps if I were younger, and/or had no family.

NOT to fight the war on terrorism
.  Is it any wonder
that experts
our efforts are making things worse?  Note that
the survey was done before the Pakistan thing came out, and before the
recent NIE.
