Good Reads/Random Cool Sites (8/20/2010)

Can I call you "whore"? Probably the best explanation I've ever heard of why some groups can use certain words that refer to them, but no one else should.

Classical Greek sculpture was actually painted in bright (even tacky) colors.

Why not to bomb Iran.

In the spirit of "I can love others" (if I get them really drunk first), Sexy Mermaid Jonah and other biblical coloring book disasters (h/t: Friendly Atheist).

  1. How funny that you would post this on the same day that I got an email from a reader saying that he liked my blog but he wished I would change the title because the word "whore" was off-putting. I guess he didn't read the entry on why I call myself a whore.

  2. Excellent selection. Your good reads are always good, but this batch was especially fascinating.

  3. Leah,
    I read that before. I like your title. I see it as a big F.U. to the kind of people who would ever think about you that way.

    Thanks, Carol!

  4. Thanks, Kuri. I like the title too and see it as ironic and "sticking it" to the Powers That Were.
