Very, very enlightening article on the issues with the translation of Simone de Beauvoir's The Second Sex can be found here. Use bugmenot.com for access.

Also this post will serve to notify people that I will not be attending karaoke friday due to a conflict of which I had no knowledge previously but must attend. I am very sorry.

Och, sorry to hear about the un-kara-oke.

Things will work out in the future.

i'm forever asking people to give me a reading list. but it dawned on me today that you might be a better person to ask since we have some similar interest. i think it was you who recommended the book by gloria feldt... (which i still need to get). any other non-political suggestions?

welllll since you asked :) i have a first suggestion which i always make... my favorite author is Michael Malone. the first book i read of his was Handling Sin, and it really had an impact on my life in a positive way. so i would start there. (it sounds like it's kind of fluffy but it really hit me hard.) i usually have several extra copies just sitting around to send to people but at this time i don't!

i can suggest more when i'm home and looking at the ol' bookshelves...
