Five Minutes of Fame

Geeky but funny. A couple of nights ago I read a tweet from a guy who was having a run-in with a birther.

Thursday Bag o’ Post-Racial America

Man. This church shooting in South Carolina. This white guy. Whose middle name is Storm (as in Stormtrooper or Stormfront?). Who sported an apartheid-era Rhodesian flag on his windbreaker. Who (but of course!) was given a gun for his 21st birthday.

Pardon me if I roll my eyes the next time someone tells me everything’ll […]

Drawing Muhammad

I did a stupid thing yesterday (so what else is new?) and commented on a Facebook thread about Pamela Geller’s Muhammad-drawing event in Garland, Texas. The thread was started by a fellow progressive who (I thought at first) feels as I do, that freedom of speech must be protected in this country even when we […]
