Midday links

Good Nightline episode last night on Salam Pax, the Baghdad Blogger. Good episode about a very cool guy. By the way, could Nightline have a more cluttered web page?

Something about the whole Bush admin’s plans to go to Mars bothers me. We’re canceling projects with known scientific merit, like the space telescope, for manned missions that will be long on publicity value and short on new knowledge. Links here, here.

Women’s rights worldwide are in pretty sorry condition, with sharia, sex slavery, and dowry deaths. Why is the concept of women being equal to men so confounding to people? Is this just a matter of people stepping on a convenient underclass as a way to rise up? Or male sexual insecurity? Or male sexual rapaciousness? Sad.
