my_partner_doug showed me some cool stuff this morning.

Watch a trailer for the Pixar movie "Brave."

See an amusing rendition of an old joke about the Venus of Willendorf.  (This makes me wonder what people would think of unearthing crucifixes, thousands of years down the line.  Possibly that the ancestors were into really hardcore kink.)

And it's nice to know that some conservatives do pay attention to facts, and can change their minds on important issues.  David Frum talks about shifting his stance on gay marriage.  I'm pleased to see someone looking for the real cause of family disintegration, and discarding false causes.  It is a concern I share; larger, long-term families have more fault-tolerance and do a better job of buffering people against hard knocks, so I want to revive that style.
