[24:05] Mike busts out the Nexus S to read Cha-cha Connor’s criticism of this week’s Worcester Magazine cover:

Worcester Magazine: what were you thinking today? Write an article on reproductive rights, and choose, as a cover image, literally a woman’s belly, without even a head? Reproductive rights are about women being allowed to be equal human beings, not state mandated gestational units. But you decided to represent us as just potentially pregnant bellies. The message sent by that photo was unhelpful.

[26:10] Great job, Michael Brazell.
