Little Red Riding Hood by Tara Jacoby (link roundup)

Little Red Riding Hood and Mother Nature by Tara Jacoby.

And a few more links:

1. Mushroom Kingdom painting.

2. Interesting article about developments in battlefield medicine. There's lots of cutting edge stuff. But sometimes, it's the old tricks that work the best:

One of the most important innovations is a reemphasis on one of the oldest medical implements on the battlefield: the tourniquet. It was frowned upon in previous years because doctors feared it could cause long-term limb damage. Servicemen are now issued a Combat Action Tourniquet, dubbed CAT, made by Composite Resources, of Rock Hill, S.C.

Two CATs are now issued to every soldier. They are easy to use because each tourniquet has a black plastic lever that tightens it. Marines often go on foot patrols with tourniquets loosely strapped high on their thighs, so they can begin cranking right away if a foot is blown off.
