"I appeal to everyone who believes in Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream to make room at the table of brother- and sisterhood for lesbian and gay people." --Coretta Scott King

Full article here. This lady will be sorely missed, by so, so many people.

Also, there's an archive of a radio programme from KQED, San Francisco's NPR station, concerning the current status of the debate over circumcision. I haven't listened to much of it, yet, but it sounds interesting. The two guests are Ed Schoen, author of Circumcision: Timely Information For Parents And Professionals From America's #1 Expert On Circumcision, and Ronald Goldman, executive director of the Circumcision Resource Center, and author of Circumcision: The Hidden Trauma and Circumcision, A Jewish Perspective.

I've never read any of these books (Darn my fiction addiction. :/ Must stop reading about fake people for a while), but I'll most likely get to one of them sometime soon. Anyway, this program sounds like it will be interesting no matter what side of the circ fence you're on.

In other news, songdog has posted a music lyric meme. Go, guess! Some of these are hard. robinhoo, you need to friend songdog. I can vouch for her; I've known her since 1961. *g*

In still other news, I think Adderall XR is affecting my appetite. I got a bowl of soup and a tuna sandwich on homemade multigrain bread from Julia's for lunch, and I could only eat half the sandwich. And I haven't taken any Adderall since yesterday (evening shift, y0, I'm taking it at three now). Hmm. This is not necessarily a BAD thing, btw. I have jeans that need to fit better.

ETA: I might want to put an actual link to the circ program. *thwaps self* You can find it here.
