News from the front...below are excerpts from a CNN article entitled "Vagina Enters Stage Left or is it Right?" Your humble blogger is still too much of a prude to use the word "vagina" in the headline to a blog entry.


In January, amid debate over the abortion ultrasound legislation, state Sen. Janet Howell of Virginia introduced an amendment to require that men seeking erectile dysfunction drugs get rectal exams and cardiac tests.

Oklahoma state. Sen. Constance Johnson in early February introduced a handwritten amendment to the Health and Human Services Committee which read, "Any action in which a man ejaculates or otherwise deposits semen anywhere but in a woman's vagina shall be interpreted and construed as an action against an unborn child."

"I asked myself, 'Is there another word for ejaculation or vagina?' I couldn't think of any," she said, her drawl thick. "I wasn't trying to be funny. As ludicrous as I thought my proposal was, I was dead serious. If it's good for the goose, it's good for the gander."

Johnson has worked in the Oklahoma Senate for 32 years, first as a longtime staffer before she became an elected member in 2005. As a staffer, she drafted the bill in the late 1990s to mandate coverage of Viagra, she said.

"They passed that thing so quick. It was the fastest bill I've ever seen go through the legislature," Johnson said.
