Saturday Link Love: Food, Strawmen, Tweets, and Thank Yous

Saturday Link Love is a feature where I collect and post links to various articles I’ve come upon over the past week. Feel free to share any interesting articles you’ve come along as well! The more the merrier.

“Are You Sure You Should Eat That?” on A. M. Leibowitz—“My kid is 11. Unless a child that age is under the care of a doctor, nutritionist, or other health professional, and a problem has been directly identified, here are the things they should not be doing (and absolutely NOT EVER under the supervision of a school teacher).”

The Handmaid’s Tale Isn’t a Strawman, and Here’s Proof, on Samantha P. Field—“The first time I read The Handmaid’s Tale I was at Liberty University, taking a utopian/dystopian literature class for an English master’s degree. I practically inhaled it, and it was my favorite of all the assigned readings that semester.”

John Piper’s Best Tweets, on Matthew Pierce—“My friends, I come not to attack or defend John Piper; I come only to celebrate his weird tweets.  After his latest tweet about sexy stones (we’ll get there, oh yes) started riling up the Christian blogosphere, I looked around to see if anyone had put all his strangest tweets in one place.  I couldn’t find anything, so I immediately felt the calling to create such a catalog myself.”

A Thank  You to the Big Kids, on Scary Mommy—“You didn’t sign up for this position. You didn’t choose to be the ones born first, a few years earlier, and if you asked to be in this situation, you probably didn’t know what being the older one actually entailed.”
