Is that really you, Lil' Jon?
Probably the biggest news today is that we journalists can officially stop calling Scott Roeder the "alleged" murderer of Dr. George Tiller. It took a jury all of 37 minutes this morning to convict the batshit-misogynist, religious fundamentalist domestic terrorist (I'll say it) of walking into Dr. Tiller's church and shooting him to death. The ending isn't happy, because the entire situation is horrific. But it is something.

Here's what else happened in ladynews this week, full of linky love for HD's favorite blogs:
