Behind The Scenes At The March For Women's Lives
by Rebecca Traister, Salon
While older feminists were awestruck at meeting Gloria Steinem and Betty Friedan, some of the young ones probably had no idea who they were. But the movement's generational divide didn't stop a million women from hitting the streets in D.C.

Looking Through Keyholes
by David Brooks, New York Times
This is crazy. This is like pausing during the second day of Gettysburg to debate the wisdom of the Missouri Compromise. We're in the midst of the pivotal battle of the Iraq war and le tout Washington decides not to let itself get distracted by the ephemera of current events.

Tech & Science

by Carol Kaesuk Yoon, New York Times

by Karen W. Arenson, New York Times

by Micheline Maynard, New York Times
It used to be that new parents were fated to watch "The Lion King" or "Finding Nemo" endlessly on video while waiting for current, more adult fare to be released for the home market. But now thousands of moms and dads across the country are taking advantage of new programs that enable them to see first-run films with their children.
