      Obama Derangement Syndrome is real. So is Clinton Derangement Syndrome. Or maybe it's just Democratic Derangement Syndrome. Or Anything That Scares Us Derangement Syndrome. I don't know, but it's real. Witness one Geoffrey Zakarian, who is some kind of celebrity chef. I quit watching chef shows when they all started blurring together, so I don

      Helen Thomas will always be a hero to me. None of that "shero" stuff. You're either a hero or you're not, no special designation if you're a woman. Helen was a reporter, not a reportrix or a reportress. A reporter, a journalist. A real journalist.

    • Fred Phelps is dead
      Fred Phelps is dead and the great marriage debate is all but over. I take no great cheer in either. Phelps, as you probably know, was a former civil rights attorney who was later disbarred and who founded a radically conservative church, the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas. If you don’t know what kind […]
