This isn't a post I planned.
(Last month, I did exercise my God-given legal choice to listen to how the Top 10 feminist bloggers and Top 10 bibliobloggers were speaking out early about President Obama's contention:
"No matter how much we may want to fudge it – indeed, while we know that the views of most Americans on the subject [of the legal choice of abortion and abortion itself] are complex and even contradictory – the fact is that at some level, the views of the two camps are irreconcilable."
Today, how do we reconcile another death? Top biblioblogger Dr. Jim West calls the "anti-killer killers" of Dr. George Tiller "vile" and "godless servants of the Devil." And Ann Friedman, an editor of the Top feminist blog feministing.com, quotes Cara Kulwicki, author at Feministe, another Top feminist blog: calling the killing a terrorist act. Friedman goes on to say, "It is the culmination of an ongoing campaign of intimidation and harassment." [Update: Paul the Spud, of the #2 Top feminist blog Shakesville, joins in by saying "it's about time these acts are labeled 'terrorism'." And Joel L. Watts, aka Polycarp, the #2 Top biblioblogger of May, says it is "a grave thing" and "a senseless act."]
These are strong words. But they're just not strong enough.)
And ask yourself, if you dare, Who am I? Want to know who I am this sad morning? I am George Tiller.
