What a shame. The Batman show was a huge part of my childhood, and a genuine cultural touchstone. And Yvonne Craig was a big reason why it was so memorable.

Glorianna just texted me: "Why didn't anyone tell me this was an option?!?"

Should be pretty easy if you pay any attention to the news (It's very America-centric, though, so those outside the U.S. may have a tougher time):

"Nail Houses" - Homeowners refuse to move out of the way of construction projects, forcing the builders to work around. Gloriously stubborn and kind of poignant:

Erika Moen's new webcomic "Oh Joy Sex Toy" is nominally about, you guessed it, sex toys. But she also uses it as a vehicle to discuss broader issues of sexuality and related health issues. In the latest strip, she examines an interesting alternative to traditional tampons. Guys, you'll want to share this with the women in your life. And read it yourself for a little more insight into that monthly fact of life. Not Safe For Work, but well worth your time.

If you're a Troper, feel free to go in and add any tropes I missed!
