Friday Bag ‘o Tribalism

Tuesday Bag o’ Soothing Slogans

One of the things I strive to do is to keep calm and carry on. But oh, it’s hard, with all the stupidity and racism loose in the land. And I can’t decide which is the chicken and which is the egg, stupidity or racism. Maybe they’re the same thing.

When racists went after Obama […]
