I made the hardest choice of my life today, and I’m still not sure if it was the right one. However, I don’t think there was any way I could have avoided making it. It is easy, with time, to … Continue reading

The Public’s Right to Know

Today, repulsed by MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and weary of watching anything on Faux News, I flipped to CNN — the supposed mature, responsible news network of cable’s big three. What was on? Some bickering talking head show with the following … Continue reading

Split ‘Em Up

It seems that more and more schools are turning to single-sex classrooms to increase academic performance and cut down in disciplinary problems: In math, science, social studies and English, students are segregated into all-boy and all-girl groups. Though the latest … Continue reading

The Second Debate

Best line of the evening was from Howard Dean, a physician: “The president’s prescription for everything is take two tax cuts and call me in the morning.” Candidate benefitting most from Lieberman’s and Kerry’s absence: John Edwards. “We should not … Continue reading

I’m sure everyone and his mother are posting their banal and overlong reaction pieces today, so I’ll keep it simple: 1) I wish the action in the beginning had been story-driven rather than character-driven. Everything seemed somewhat meaningless until The … Continue reading

Retards in Red States #5

In a rare redeeming act, the Supreme Court rejected Kentucky’s attempt to place a huge granite replica of the Ten Commandments on the grounds of the state Capitol. This story hit a nerve because my county practically did the same … Continue reading

Blinded by Bush-Hatred
