TS Tidbits, 8.20
- Job or Home? Dennis Prager, a radio show host, asserts that “Women are preoccupied with making a home. Men are defined by their job.” He is usually reasonable, but I don’t know what to say to this one. Maybe ‘I wish he had some non-anecdotal data.’
- Smart=sexy. Jennifer at Cocktail Party Physics muses about the BA hubbub over the Nerd Girls, who were mentioned here last time.
- Gardasil’s rise. The next article in the meritable NYT series, “The Evidence Gap,” looks at how Merck marketed its drug as a ‘must-have’ for girls. Interesting after Cassie’s post on the same topic.
Apologies for the lack of posting this past week. I finally got to go on a much-needed vacation. It turned out to be somewhat of a bust, but oh well–I’m back!
