As many of y'all know, I'm the About.com Guide to Civil Liberties. So you might be asking yourself: What kind of stuff have I been writing lately? Well, right now I'm working on a piece dealing with today's New Jersey marriage law/civil unions ruling--but here's some other stuff I've written...
If there's sufficient interest, I might make this a semiweekly feature. Meanwhile, here's a sample of what I've been up to:
The Bush Administration's War on Girls (sex segregation and Title IX)
The Following Blog Entry is Rated G (Internet censorship)
Why Girls are "Dumb at Math" (more on Title IX and sex segregation)
Did the Bush Administration Promote Sex Trafficking? (yes, actually--this is some pretty scary stuff)
ACLU: Pentagon Monitoring of Antiwar Activists More Intensive Than Previously Thought (on why the Bush administration apparently considers Quakers and Mennonites a terrorist threat)
The Military Commissions Act of 2006 (profile of the new detainee bill)
Yes to Gay Marriage (my detailed argument against the Federal Marriage Amendment)
Flag Burning and the Law (a history of flag desecration laws)
Types of Executions (how the government kills prisoners)
Big Brother is Watching (history of government surveillance programs)
American Torture (various torture techniques used by U.S. forces)
Human Rights in North Korea (just what it sounds like)
Human Rights in Iran (ditto)
Top 10 "Obscene" Literary Classics (banned classic novels)
Sex and Civil Liberties (when the government invades bedrooms)

Bump. I'm not usually into the whole blatant self-promotion thing, but some of this stuff is pretty good--if I do say so myself. Cheers, TH

Boy, haven't you been busy? :-)
This is great stuff, Tom. We're proud of you. You're representing well–and teaching valuable lessons about the Constitution. Nice.
