Emily Greenhouse asks: Why do news reports still count the numbers of women and children killed in war zones? http://nyr.kr/1xAjgSO

“If we truly wish to identify the most helpless victims, we should count, alongside children, the infirm and the elderly. Instead, we tally the number of women and children killed, reflecting and perpetuating outdated ideas about women’s lives and women’s bodies.”

Obviously my favorite thing is playing music, writing music, working on putting a show together, being on tour—anything that’s actually the art. The other stuff I just approach like a professional. Everyone has parts of their job that are not their favorite thing in the world, but you know, whatever, suck it up and do it. - St. Vincent

When Israel is on “good behavior,” more than two Palestinian children are killed every week, a pattern that goes back over 14 years. The underlying cause is the criminal occupation and the programs to reduce Palestinian life to bare survival in Gaza, while Palestinians are restricted to unviable cantons in the West Bank and Israel takes over what it wants, all in gross violation of international law and explicit Security Council resolutions, not to speak of minimal decency. And it will continue as long as it is supported by Washington and tolerated by Europe – to our everlasting shame.
