Some Links

SOME LINKS….I don’t usually do linkfests, but here are a couple of interesting links anyway:

  • A long Guardian story about ASBOs ? Anti-Social Behaviour Orders ? legal injunctions used in Britain against minors accused of anti-social behavior. In January, for example, a 14-year-old boy was banned from saying the word “grass” anywhere in England or Wales until 2010. Read both Part 1 and Part 2.

  • Rivka writes about abortion and birth defects.

These aren’t related in any way, and I don’t have any particular comment on them. They’re just interesting reading.
