This is why we can’t have nice things. Nancy Silberkleit became co-CEO of Archie Comics–home of the beloved and socially progressive characters Archie, Jughead, Kevin Keller, and Sabrina the Teenage Witch– in 2008 after her husband’s death. Now male employees are claiming she called them "penis".
Anyone else sickened by the the fact that this has been happening so long that they can track it year over year? Yea for reduction of injuries and deaths but boo to it STILL HAPPENING.
Ross Douthat of the New York Times is one of the better conservative reads around. Part of the value of his sometimes quite insightful analysis was that he was willing to accept unpleasant facts concerning the failures of conservative thought. That didn’t make him some liberal punching bag – a reverse Alan Colmes – but [...]
With Uruguay about to potentially legalize marijuana President José Mujica is asking for international support for his plan. From Folha De Sao Paulo: He says he has never smoked marijuana. “I don’t defend it, I wish it didn’t exist. No addiction is good. We are regulating a market that already exists. We can’t close our [...]
In light of the continuing problems with Healthcare.gov it is clear Republican governors made an incredibly smart political decision when they opted not to build their own state-based exchanges. If you separate it from the policy implications, on a purely political level it was one of the smartest collective political moves in years.

On Sunday they bragged the site “has the capacity to handle 50,000 concurrent or simultaneous users at one time.” But the very next day that was proven [...]
Lost in the drama in DC is that many of the programs being cut or eliminated affect real people. One such program is extended unemployment benefits for the long term unemployed. While Wall Street has rebounded the economy for the 99% remains depressed and stagnant. Extended unemployment is all that is keeping some families from [...]

The trailer of this documentary ‘God Loves Uganda’ is easily the most heartbreaking thing I have seen in a long time. This is what the American anti-gay right did to this country and it’s awful.
We don’t trust each other to the point where it’s reflected in our rhetoric and by what dominates our attention. Controversy sells! How often do good things get covered? To what scale? We’re inundated with the sideshow in a circus with no main act. What do we actually stand for?

It is amazing to me that prominent people still claim health care reform needed 60 votes in the Senate, even this myth has been proved false repeatedly in huge ways.
