- Last Sunday was Easter, and even if you're not a person of faith, Patheos has a blog post worth reading, for those of us who care about feminist issues. It has to do with Mary Magdalene, the Biblical figure and follower of Christ, and how she has been wrongly maligned as a prostitute for a long time.

The New York Times has an excellent article on O'Reilly, and how his behavior drove away Megyn Kelly, another former superstar at Fox who is now at NBC.
