    • The odious ODS
      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't […]

    • Good-bye to a legend
      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.

    • I stand with Muslims
      A friend suggested today that some of us who are against all the fascist, anti-Muslim rhetoric being spewed by Donald Trump and his supporters offer to stand vigil outside the Islamic Center during prayers. I would jump at the chance, so I messaged the center to see if they would appreciate our help. There will […]

    • We live in a war zone
      Another 14 dead and 17 wounded, this time at a center for people with developmental disabilities. No place is safe in America. No person is safe. This isn’t true in other industrialized countries. That’s because they have laws restricting access to guns. We don’t have that because we have the NRA, one of the most […]

    • This wasn't about mental illness
      Don’t tell me the rhetoric on the right isn’t part of what happened in Colorado Springs last week. Don’t tell me, either, that the poor man was a victim of untreated mental illness. Three innocent people are dead at a Planned Parenthood clinic because the screamers on the far right have whipped up a frenzy […]

    • 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 […]
