What We Missed

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett insists that his state’s mandatory ultrasound isn’t forcing women to look at ultrasound images of the fetus: “I’m not making anybody watch, OK.

Slate interviews cartoonist Garry Trudeau about this week’s controversial strip.

“Q: What do you consider the most overrated virtue? A: That’s easy: chastity.” That’s Rachel Maddow, folks.

The New York Times and The Gothamist weigh in on the GOP’s reluctance to renew the Violence Against Women Act.
