October = Awareness.

Autumn is in full swing, folks. The silly season is over – you know, the season of movies like “Good Luck Chuck” and our insatiable desire to gobble up ridiculous news stories.

Let’s get down to business:

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month: find out more about breast cancer; one click here will apparently help sponsor a disadvantaged woman’s free mammogram.

October is also Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Read about victims of domestic violence and how you can take action by visiting the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence’s Web site.

The Supreme Court is back in session, as of Oct. 1. Here’s a fun read that can serve as your new session primer – Slate.com’s Q&A style article with Washington Post’s Dahlia Lithwick, in which she discusses this article.

I wouldn’t feel right about myself if I didn’t at least mention that October is also Vegetarian Awareness Month. Go, read.
