Up Close and Personal

Links for the Weekend

Sometimes the best way to play trains is up close and personal.

I continue to be flabbergasted by the number of American politicians trying to send women’s right back into the dark ages.

Read 10 Reasons the Rest of the World Thinks the US is Nuts, the best article I’ve read yet on the insanity of this debate.

Then read Twitter’s Tales of Sexism and why feminism shouldn’t be a dirty word.
