Tweets This Week: Disability, Muslim Abortion, Inclusion, and the Only and the Lonely

So my plan going forward is to offer a post every Friday that includes articles I’ve tweeted this week. I know I did this on Tuesday of this week, but from now on, Fridays are the plan. As it happens, this week I also had an interview on WordFM. Here’s the corresponding tweet in case you want to hear it:

“Why I Don’t #PrayForTheWorld Anymore”  My latest interview(Podcast June 10) on the John & Kathy Show
