Economics and similar, for the sleep-deprived
A subtle change has been made to the comments links, so they no longer pop up. Does this in any way help with the problem about comments not appearing on permalinked posts, readers?
Update: seemingly not
Update: Oh yeah!

The Female Of The Species
I can't help but noticing that while the Stay At Home Mom Wars (for or against) have been raging through one part of the blogosphere, the Blow Job Wars have been raging through another part. They are both really quite astoundingly vituperative.
What genuinely frightens me is that there is presumably quite a significant overlap between these two communities, so some people might have been involved in both wars at once. Women with weblogs who have opinions on both work-life balance and fellatio have been living in the blogospheric equivalent of the Democratic Republic of Congo these last few weeks.
Update: The editorial staff of D-Squared Digest, namely me, are fond of a quiet life and would thus just like to emphasise that we mean no disrespect at all to any of the weblogs linked above; at times the writing in some of these wars is titanically fantastic, albeit that you do have to read about ten thousand words of the stuff before you have the slightest clue who is who and what is going on. It's rather like Tolkien that way. By way of recompense to my infuriated female readers because I know this is the sort of thing you like, here are a couple of links to the story of a man whose scrotum exploded.
Note that he preserved quiet dignity and a sense of humour throughout, which rather puts all that childbirth nonsense in perspective.
