Signs of the Apocalypse

Ken and Barbie broke up. Cathy's getting married. Clinton made a speech I liked.

Well, whether it's frogs or toads that start falling from the sky, the Ohio legislature is on the job. This, of course, is only days after dealing with such important and controversial legislation as the Defense of Marriage Act. (Which may actually be the point -- a little frivolity to help the legislature recover its internal goodwill.)

Valentine's Day has become a major holiday in Iran, Pakistan, and India, despite opposition from religion leaders. It is widely regarded as empowering for women. Meanwhile, US feminists are "celebrating" Valentine's Day by talking about sexual violence against women.

It's a very strange world.
