News Roundup: Russell Crowe on Circumcision, Weiner on his Weiner

By at 4:01 pm

All the parenting news you probably didn’t have time to read this week.

-If you’re a father, or a mother, or a human being with a heartbeat, you probably shouldn’t read this staggering piece about a father coping with the death of his baby. (The New Yorker)

-Could conjoined twins actually share one mind? Krista and Tatiana Hogan, 4, are Canadian twins and researchers are baffled by their brain. If you tickle one girl’s foot, the other sister can feel it. (NY Times)

-More on the anti-circumcision ballot stirring in California. Russell Crowe chimes in: he loves his Jewish friends, he hates circumcision. The Forward (OK, my husband) suggests that Russell should play Foreskin Man when the rabidly anti-Semitic cartoon becomes a movie. (The Forward)

-In ordinary circumstances we would announce with glee that Rep. Anthony Weiner’s lovely wife, Huma Abedin, is pregnant. Though that whole emailing photos of his penis thing is sort of putting a damper on things. (Media Bistro)

-In honor of Father’s Day, Jewish men weigh in on what it means to be a dad. These are, in this order, funny, earnest, and heartbreaking. And there are no less than two references to poop. And one of them just happens to be about my daughter. (The Forward)
