March: women's health, gay marriage, & liberation

You should read the whole Mother Jones article on the absolute political chaos that is currently going on.   This is bad.  Very bad. 
Also, from today's Daily Women's Health Policy Report, this article gives more insight into the horribleness that is being voted on in North Dakota.   Even scarier.
Plus, tomorrow, the Supreme Court hears the prop 8 case and the DOMA case on Wednesday.  All the possibilities of what might happened, which The New York Times expertly delineated, make my head spin.  It is going to be a long wait until June.  I wish I could be a fly on the wall for the debate & discussion between the judges.   
In the meantime, I'm going to disappear into the world of freedom and liberation with Passover.  I'm grateful that this year off from medical school means I can actually celebrate Jewish holidays with friends and family; without [too much] guilt that I'm slacking or making someone else cover for me.  I realize that this might be one of the last years, at least through residency, that I can take off and travel for the holiday.  May it be a true festival of freedom this year!
