    The Plan B decision makes me so mad. Not so much because I’m disappointed in Obama — I’ve always known he wasn’t exactly a huge champion of reproductive freedom — but because I’m disappointed in Sebelius. She was the governor of my state before she went off to be Secretary of HHS, and I really liked her in that capacity.

    from your bird flu link: Meanwhile, the strain was found to be a new type of “quadruple reassortant” virus with a mixture of genes from four flu strains found in birds, researchers said. [] One of those genes is likely to have come from migratory birds from East Asia.

    we crazy cat ladies have been trying to tell y’all that the world needs more cats and fewer birds. 🙂
