Treating Sudafed as a narcoterrorist weapon of mass destruction has surprisingly made more business for the Mexican drug cartels. It's a naïve domestic meth, but I think you'll be amused by its presumption.

Thanx to Radley Balko

To those who have taken this day to come out as gay, lesbian, bi, or trans, I offer my best wishes that you get to do so at as little cost (in all ways) as possible, my admiration, and my thanks for helping make the world I live in a less stupid one.

To those who think, as I do, that Coming Out Day can include all the forms of sexuality that can offend people whose business it is none of, I direct your attention to my userinfo if you did not already know that I am part of a happy, long-lasting, committed three-person tuple.

Facebook is a city with many neighborhoods. Every so often I realize that the low opinion of the populace that I get from what my friends link to is overly optimistic. We're getting word games (with thousands of Likes and comments) on the elementary school level. A current one is "Betcha can't name a word that begins with C and ends with P." I guess it's like the people who read the tabloids are part of the elite minority who read at all.

Why should political reporters have to talk about boring old politics when they could talk about sex?

Thanx to Charles P. Pierce.

In the 50s we needed an undemocratic, activist judiciary to end segregation.

In the 60s we needed an undemocratic, activist judiciary to permit interracial marriage.

In the 70s we needed an undemocratic, activist judiciary to say that women own their own bodies.

These eminently reasonable decisions caused so much popular rage that now the Court is hoping that the rest of us can do marriage equality with less help from them than usual.

Why You Must Lie on Job Interviews and What You Must Lie About
All of the characteristics HR looks for in a job candidate are the polar opposite of what enlightened leaders seek in new talent.

Thanx to andrewducker
