two quick articles of interest

- Why Strong Female Characters Are Bad For Women (at Overthinking It, via Dorothy). Rather good exploration of how "unreasonably strong" (my words) female characters (think the "supermodel, astrophysicist, kung-fu fighting, hawtie who throws herself at the nebbish male lead") are really not the kind of females you want to see and don't do any good. It gives some examples of reasonable female characters, and I agree with many of them. Solid discussion in the comments, too. Lots to think about for female characters.

- Men married to smart women live longer (from Times Online). Hear, hear! By that measure, I will be living a very long time.
