Leaving Washington for Orlando, and there are undumped tabs. Your gain.
When Harper's says that there has been an ethics meltdown in Eric Holder's Justice Department (and of his predecessors, to be sure), then the matter bears looking in to. I have not read it all yet, so tell us what it says while I fly.
A note to our president from a former leader of his party: Teleprompters = "idiot boards".
How do you say "butterfly" in all the world's languages?
More fun in more ways, more orgasms, and more disease. Everything has its price, but there are some things you cannot put a price on. Note to my children: Use a condom!
Every color but camo.
"Mother had a twin who died in the womg": Great moments in the alibis of doping jocks.
An open letter to religious leaders on the suicides of gay kids. A little kindness, please.
When Harper's says that there has been an ethics meltdown in Eric Holder's Justice Department (and of his predecessors, to be sure), then the matter bears looking in to.
Harper's saying that might be compared to Hugo Chavez admitting there might be a democracy problem in Venezuela. Or the head of the European Union saying there might be a problem with overreaching regulations.
The statistics on "other than heterosexual" and gay teen suicide are misleading.
Bullying and victimization are contemptible, and teenagers should have a variety of places, including churches, where they feel they can find safety and even protection. But gayness is not the lone reason for bullying. The essay seems like a victim-hijacking to me: inflated numbers and and preeminence of one group among many.
