Tabs Out of Time

Some great stuff recently, but little time to write about it, so here are the links.

Why fresh water availability matters for electricity generation (from the excellent Maggie Koerth-Baker at BoingBoing).

How Lincoln High School in Walla Walla, Wash., has learned to nurture the kids everyone else expels. Lessons for all schools that deal with damaged children.

A woman remembers what it was like to get an abortion before Roe v. Wade.

A nice collection of logos, especially ones that use negative space effectively, like the one at right.

A case study in how our so-called system of paying for health care doesn't work.

The final word on the UC Davis pepper spraying travesty.

A piece of World War II history I never heard before: How the German surrender was embargoed until an Associated Press reporter broke the story without permission, and why that was a reasonable thing to do.
