The Daily Wrap

More

Today on the Dish we continued to follow the Tiller tragedy. We composed a reax of the blogosphere, but more illuminating were the testimonials we got from readers; they touched upon the trauma, the risk, the terror, the regret, the uncertainty, and the ultimately personal nature of late-term abortions. We also featured accounts from a Tiller patient, a Tiller protester, a Wichita pastor, a Catholic mother, and one of the last remaining late-term abortionists.

In other news, Petraues spoke out against Gitmo, the NYT asked some questions about McChrystal, and Goldberg tackled the settlements issue. McClatchy uncovered Sotomayor's porn trial, Feinstein defended her from bogus claims, and Jeff Rosen divined Obama's judicial philosophy. Also, while Cheney stood up for marriage equality, the Obama government barred 60 Canadians for having HIV and offered the gays a token gesture on Stonewall.

Finally, don't miss one of the best Mental Health Breaks we've had in a while: Mary Poppins on acid.
