Texting pedestrian lanes, serious and/or half-joking

Utah Valley University has recently installed texting lanes for distracted walkers.

Recently, a cellphone company in Antwerp, Belgium painted ‘text walking lanes’ on sidewalks there, as a marketing stunt.

Last year, the Chinese city of Chongqing introduced a cellphone lane for pedestrians, on a stretch of sidewalk.

On April Fool’s Day, 2012, in Philadelphia, the city council jokingly introduced ‘e-lanes’, as an April Fool’s joke.

Joking aside, one wonders if such could become a wider reality; doesn’t seem entirely far-fetched, IMO…

Miss Piggy to receive feminist award from the Brooklyn Museum, presented by Gloria Steinem

Yeah.

“For more than 40 years of blazing feminist trails with determination and humor, and for her groundbreaking role inspiring generations the world over,” Miss Piggy is set to receive an important honor from the Brooklyn Museum’s Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art.

The Museum announced that Miss Piggy will be honored with the Sackler Center 2015 First Award, and will appear in conversation with Gloria Steinem, herself already an honoree, on June 4. Kermit the Frog is also scheduled to attend.

Previous recipients include Julie Taymor, Sandra Day O’Connor, and Anita F. Hill. Tickets to the private event are available for purchase.

When reached for comment, Miss Piggy only had this to say:

Actually, apparently ‘she’ ‘said':

“Moi is thrilled.”

So, the woman who said that a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle, is going to give an award to a fictitious character, portrayed by a marionette…

We truly are living in transparodistic times, alas…

Winning comment goes to Arch:

Congratulations, Miss Piggy, your physical and emotional abuse, as well as your consistent control and emasculation of the passive, meek, beta, Kermit the Frog, embodies the feminist movement. Appropriate for a pig to be the face of the cause. Congrats again!

Hear, hear! :)

One could just imagine it…

Excerpt:

An unemployed gender studies major from Eugene, Ore. sued “The Patriarchy” today in federal court for refusing to give her a job.

In a 25-page brief, attorneys for Sarah Miller-Jones, 24, argue that gender discrimination from the patriarchy has prevented their client from finding gainful employment since she graduated from university three years ago.

If Galatians Were Published in Christianity Today

Will S.:

Yes, do go read the whole post at Sacred Sandwich; it’s spot on, pitch-perfect!

Dear Christianity Today:

In response to Paul D. Apostle’s article about the Galatian church in your January issue, I have to say how appalled I am by the unchristian tone of this hit piece. Why the negativity? Has he been to the Galatian church recently? I happen to know some of the people at that church, and they are the most loving, caring people I’ve ever met.
