Okay, we should get some interesting hits for this one. Anyway, today's episode of First Person, Plural is about sex toys. It's a rerun, but sex toys are always in vogue, n'est pas?

Last week's episode about Kitties and Social Capitalis up as this week's featured rerun (please note: this link will change every Thursday to a new featured re-run). We attended a local cat fanciers' show that turned into a wonderful example of what can happen when "social capital" accrues. What was supposed to be an episode about identifying with your pets turned into a great example of Robert Putnam's (author of Bowling Alone: The Collapse and Revival of American Community) argument that joining is an important aspect not only of an individual's social life, but a great asset for communities in times of crises.
