Single and Fabulous

The facts are these: Singles are the fastest-growing demographic group in the U.S., and marital status is not a determinant of happiness. Psychology Today magazine examines these findings and says singlehood is rapidly becoming “a satisfying destination rather than an anxiety-ridden way station.”

War on Contraception
From the N.Y. Times

The War on Contraception

The N.Y. Times Magazine delivers a devastating, in-depth report on Christian conservatives who “believe that having sex without the intent to procreate is a very, very bad thing”—and on their efforts to make all forms of contraceptives much harder to obtain.
These biblical literalists are truly frightening; their Iron Age views on sexual morality are actually helping to increase the numbers of unwanted pregnancies and abortions in America.

  • The Fraud and False Statements statute (18 U.S.C. 1001) makes Hayden?s misleading statements to Congress illegal, according to a Clinton-era national security official.
  • See a Time article on Hayden’s impending appointment.
