There is still time to vote in the Women’s Media Center Social Media awards. Lots of awesome folks in the group, including yours truly and Jos. Check it out and cast your vote here.

Irin Carmon who did award-winning on the ground reporting on the Mississippi ballot initiative, has a wrap-up of why it failed. “At the very least, we know that there is such a thing as conservative overreaching — even in Mississippi.”

    According to Time, Personhood USA is making efforts to put a similar initiative on the 2012 ballots in Florida, Montana, Ohio, Oregon, Nevada and California.

    As a resident of Oregon, I am both frightened by this and completely annoyed. I thought these ideas would only come out of the cracks in more conservative states–such as Mississippi–but clearly a nationwide attack is being launched.

    Try it, Personhood! I have a great deal of faith in Oregon voters. :-)
