Lynne Featherstone talks about the difficulties of relying on the NHS to provide you with independent movement.

Spirit of 1976 has suddenly discovered an urge to try Khat – why? Because the Tories want to ban it.

The Times has a fascinating article on the history of Vibrators, and how the humble Personal Massager reflects the changing attitude of society to women.

Smash Boredom has a convincing argument that Robert Mugabe is right about something.

PC Bloggs has a very affecting tale of police resources spread too thin. I can’t recommend her blog enough.

And finally, Feminist SF reviews the weekend’s episode of Doctor Who in a rather weary manner.
