1. Salon advice columnist tells a wife who is angry at her husband for attending a strip club during a bachelor party:
Why would you find your husband’s enjoyment of strip clubs offensive? Might it be that you find it offensive because it represents something that is truly offensive? And what might that be? Might the selling of women’s bodies be in some way offensive, as the selling of slaves’ bodies is offensive?
I would think that simple jealousy is at the heart of her anger and frustration, not some deep feminine concern for power disparities.

3. Kobe Bryant’s wife thinks that a marriage to a famous athlete is only conceivable if said athlete has won a championship. Anything less would be uncivilized or something.
4. Jezzie author who was slapped around by Ramesh Ponnuru yesterday asks whether airlines can force men to switch seats away from unaccompanied minors.

Also, Juan Williams was a bigot for having a fleeting and irrational fear that some Muslims on his airplane were terrorists. How many people irrationally believe that lone men on airplanes are pedophiles?
