Link roundup

1. Marvel says it "has a very strong record of diversity in its casting of films and regularly departs from stereotypes" (except when it comes to Asians).

2. "Vocativ calculated that George RR Martin has written 56,829 words about the NFL on his LiveJournal."

3. "Widows of two Marine Corps pilots have won a 16-year fight to lift blame from their husbands’ shoulders for a 2000 Osprey crash that killed 19 people, including 15 Marines from San Diego County."

U.S. Rep. Walter B. Jones (R-N.C.), who championed the widows’ cause, said the Marine Corps pushed blame on the pilot and co-pilot in 2000 because it needed the troubled program to continue and succeed.
