apocalypse now

Maybe I just shouldn't come back...

...and in further WTF? news of the US legal system, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that employers who require female employees – but not male ones – to wear make-up to work are not practicing sex-based discrimination. Somehow. (The full opinion is here.)

The BBC broadcast a TV show the other night called Pride; my Mum taped it, and I've just seen a couple of minutes' worth. It's a family drama about lions, using footage of real lions tweaked with CGI and dubbed with celebrity voices (Kate Winslet, Sean Bean, Helen Mirren, Robbie Coltrane, Jim Broadbent, John Hurt, etc.).

I'd just like to say two things about this:

(1) Look Who's Stalking. There, I said it.  :-)

(2) I generally prefer UK television to its US counterpart... but, uh, this is not a universal preference. (Bleagh.)
