So, some of you know I am stranded in Japan, near Tokyo. The Space A flight that was available had a strict overall weight capacity and our baggage was a little over (you can’t even exceed it by a pound). Long story short, in order to make sure The Kid got to school and The Guy got to work (and his advancement exam *crosses fingers*) I volunteered to stay behind, because it was either one of us or all of us. Flights to Korea are fairly rare, and commercial from Japan to Korea is ridiculously high, around $700 for a two hour flight. So, here I sit, indefinitely. The up side is that I have had time to catch up on some reading and blogging (you may have noticed).
Same song, different verse. Here’s what I read. Share yours in comments.

Pam: KS Rep. Lynn Jenkins laughs at uninsured mom and child at forum. Warning: The comments toward this woman about having the audacity to bring a child in public are sad and disgusting. Bad enough she is laughed at by her own Representative, but now she is shamed by Pam’s readers for being a single mother.
Vanessa: Raising a Feminist/Raised a Feminist. Blub Warning! Beautiful. And, where do I sign us up for this camp?
Leigh Graham (Change.org): Low-Wage Workers Routinely Cheated.
