USA Today featured Sam Pizzigati’s op-ed from the LA Times, alongside the opinions of Matthew Rose (The Wall Street Journal), John Cassidy (The New Yorker), and Paul Krugman (The New York Times), offering an alternative view to the fiscal cliff.
“Is history simply repeating?”, asks Pizzigati. “If so, bring that repeat on, with the same final result. That 1932 fiscal crisis produced an unexpected, and stunning, watershed in U.S. history, the moment when America’s rich and powerful began to lose their lock-grip on the nation’s political pulse.”

“Writing in a memorably austere, flinty voice, Gabrielsson has produced neither a tell-all nor some “handmaiden to literary genius” emo-gusher. . . . Gabrielsson comes across as rigid, obsessed, and
humorless, but a fierce warrior in fighting for what she sees as justice. Not unlike Larsson’s own heroine.” —USA Today

[Laura] Eldridge, the author of In Our Control: The Complete Guide to Contraceptive Choices for Women, due out next month, says she went on the pill at age 18.
By her mid-20s, “I started having a lot of problems” — irregular bleeding, premenstrual syndrome. After trying five different types of the pill, Eldridge, now 30 and married, gave up and got a diaphragm, a device some peers find quaint.
“There are a lot of women who are not happy on the pill,” she says. “We can have respect for different methods and different choices.” —USA Today, on the fiftieth anniversary of the Pill
