Maia Svalavitz in Time Magazine with a brave and personal discussion of psychiatry's new diagnostic bible.

The Militant Baker and her open letter to the CEO of Abercrombie and Fitch along with some brilliant photographs.

A great piece by Patrick Mustain in Scientific American, "Dear American Consumers: Please Don’t Start Eating Healthfully. Sincerely, the Food Industry"

A bonus piece: If you want your heart to warm some and to be proud of at least two of your fellow human beings, read this. I mean it. Read it.
