Some people can flat-out write well. (I'm not one of them.) Shoshana in No Education, Too? and LT in No Education for Women have both put up wonderfully written, well thought-out, unhurried posts on yesterday's education for women issue. They're both worth a couple of minutes of your time - feel free to comment away by them as well. While I'm on the subject, I'm Ha'aretz PhD had a good post on the subject yesterday as well called Charedi Women: The Stupider, The Merrier which relates over a terrible personal experience.

Other very good and/or interesting posts out there today, after the J-blogosphere seemed to have taken a nice break lately:
  • On the darker side, JBlogMeister was the first to break the tragic story of a 22-year old who - through no fault of her own - hit a 16-year old with her car. I can't imagine how I'd react to such a thing; hopefully the knowledge that she couldn't have done anything will let her get past it.
  • YeshivaWorld posts what is depressing to me, at least. I don't understand this at all.
  • On the lighter side, Treppenwitz has a wonderfully sweet story about one of his routines; Kasamba is hilarious as always, and the post gets a Mazel Tov; RaggedyMom speaks out for redheads (yay!); and TOWIK gets positive.
  • BeyondBT has a thought-provoking piece on ex-BTs.
  • NoyG rips nicely into people who don't speak properly.
