This past Valentine's Day, author/sex therapist Violet Blue gave a one hour lecture to the techs at Google, titled Abstinence Does Not Make The Heart Grow Fonder. In it, she tried to make sense of the governmentally funded, fifth annual 'Day of Purity.' Needless to say, she couldn't.

Jonathan Schell, correspondent for The Nation Magazine and author of The Seventh Decade, talks to Charlie Rose about the ever-growing likeliness of nuclear bombs ruining your vacation plans. Chipper!

The Guardian UK's Gary Younge joins Graydon Carter (the editor of Vanity Fair and the author of What We Lost) and Christopher Hitchens (author of God is Not Great) in launching 'Stranger in a Strange Land: Encounters in the Disunited States' -- a consideration of the state of the union. The video of the event is split into seven parts. You'll want to start here.
