One of Susie's favorite writers/thinkers/social commentators Ellen Willis died earlier this month. Willis was the first pop-music critic for The New Yorker, and wrote regularly about music for Rolling Stone, The Village Voice, and more. From why feminists against pornography had it all wrong to why the first President Bush's war on drugs was misguided, Willis fearlessly faced tough social issues and Susie loved her for it. Susie shares some of her favorite Willis writings to commemorate this remarkable thinker. Then, in the Try This at Home mailbag, Susie weighs in on the dangers of non-oxynol 9 and why it's far past time for danger-free spermacide option.
