Readers of jewishjournal.com have been getting news of the progress of circumcision ballot measures in California cities for a few weeks now, and it’s safe to say that the story is everywhere.

By way of illustration: The recent decision by Jena Troutman to abandon her efforts to ban the procedure in Santa Monica was reported here on Monday, in the New York Times on Tuesday, and on Wednesday in a UK tabloid, the Daily Mail. (The Brits’ headline: Circumcision should be banned but I don’t “have the time or energy.”)

And yesterday evening, I talked to KCRW’s Warren Olney on Which Way L.A.? about the issue. The player is embedded below—the segment on circumcision starts at about minute 18.
