More sexual repression!
In an ongoing effort to reach out to a younger demographic (after the depressing epiphany of last week), Preposterous continues to track the forces of reaction as they attempt to recreate a lost Puritan utopia. In this case, no claim to breaking the news: from Davos Newbies via Pharyngula and Crooked Timber, a story from the Financial Times explains why Americans can't be trusted to see Veronese frescoes shown on television. Something about naked Cupids. No word on colors or flavors.
For those readers in our older, post-giggling demographic, here's more traditional fare: NSF budget slashed, via Chris C. Mooney. I guess there's a fine line between "double the budget" and "cut by $100 million."
