1.Cassie Sharp wrote a great post about being an author without author friends might lead to something like #cockygate. (Pajiba has a good summary of #cockygate if you have missed that story in the last week.)
2. This story of a trans-racial adoptee who found his birth mother after he had a health scare gave me many feels.
3. I am highly amused by the story of condoms in Georgia that are outlawed.
