When they aren't busy spreading lies about doughnut sprinkles... "The coverage of the Brooklyn killings on Fox News has leaned heavily on assigning a larger cultural and political blame. Yet in stark contrast, as Media Matters has documented, Fox News has routinely paid very little attention to breaking news stories that feature right-wing, or anti-government, gunmen who target law enforcement officials as a way to deliver their warped political messages. And critically, when they have touc...

"With these acts of passive-aggressive contempt and self-pity, many New York police officers, led by their union, are squandering the department’s credibility, defacing its reputation, shredding its hard-earned respect. They have taken the most grave and solemn of civic moments — a funeral of a fallen colleague — and hijacked it for their own petty look-at-us gesture. In doing so, they also turned their backs on Mr. Ramos’s widow and her two young sons, and others in that grief-struck family....

If you're eating right now, I advise you to make sure there's nothing in your mouth before following this link. I wish someone had told me that first! http://www.thepoke.co.uk/2013/04/26/unfortunate-publishing-layouts-of-our-time/

The Right are always freaking out over Muslims taking over America. IMO, the real potential threat to our security are these militia groups full of idiots and fools who think themselves patriots. http://www.theeverlastinggopstoppers.com/2014/10/right-wing-militia-leader-revealed-felon-arrested-weapons-charges/

"We Americans today are focused on the wrong threats to American democracy. We are obsessed with threats from overseas: from terrorists and Islamist extremists, and from other countries. But realistically, while terrorists and Islamists and other countries will continue to cause trouble for us, the chance of their ending American democracy is nil. The only real threat to American democracy comes from Americans themselves." http://www.latimes.com/opinion/op-ed/la-oe-diamond-chile-america-demo...

"Alexander and Entwisle found one exception: Low-income white boys attained some of the lowest levels of education. But they earned the highest incomes among the urban disadvantaged. They were able, Alexander and Entwisle realized, to tap into what remains of the good blue-collar jobs in Baltimore. These are the skilled crafts, the union gigs, jobs in trades traditionally passed from one generation to the next and historically withheld from blacks. These children did not inherit college expe...

"If Christians truly want to treat the New Testament as the foundation of the religion, they have to know it. Too many of them seem to read John Grisham novels with greater care than they apply to the book they consider to be the most important document in the world. But the history, complexities and actual words of the Bible can’t be ignored just to line it up with what people want to believe, based simply on what friends and family and ministers tell them. Nowhere in the Gospels or Acts of...

Today is one of those days. I dropped a hot dog, forgot to charge a customer for a side of coleslaw, and dropped a take-out cup of coffee in the kitchen. I was happy that I didn't get the coffee on my clothes. Then when I was cleaning up the mess, I found some of the coffee had puddled in this aluminum shelf-thing that we had detached from our deep fryer. I picked it up to clean it off and managed to dump the coffee puddle all over my shirt and jeans. The good news is that even though it's a...

"...this means we can blame Bill O'Reilly for his 28 episodes of invective against 'Tiller the Baby Killer' that eventually ended in the murder of Wichita abortion provider George Tiller by anti-abortion activist Scott Roeder. We can blame conservative talk radio for fueling the anti-government hysteria that led Timothy McVeigh to bomb a federal building in Oklahoma City. We can blame the relentless xenophobia of Fox News for the bombing of an Islamic Center in Joplin or the massacre of Sikh...

A brilliant short story demonstrating the trouble with pedantry in the English language: SHIPS IN THE NIGHT by Lawrence Bush I had only just arrived at the club when I bumped into Roger. After we had exchanged a few pleasantries, he lowered his voice and asked, "What do you think of Martha and I as a potential twosome?" "That," I replied, "would be a mistake. Martha and me is more like it." "You're interested in Martha?" "I'm interested in clear communication." "Fair enough," he agr...
