Feministing posts about a Georgia High School and this year being the first desegregated prom. Yes, this year. Link

Alternet has a story about how the Bush Administration is working to privatize our water supplies. Great, a requirement of life in the hands of multi-national corporations, what a great idea that is. Link

Contrary to crazy-leftist-pinko-commie-traitor rhetoric, America is certainly not the only place where politicians come up with stupid, censorious ideas.
