I was talking to my husband about all this stuff an he used to agree with me on all this stuff but he got really weerd lately and stopped talking about those gays and just kind of grins at me silent like when I talk about it.

Re: Song of the South Revisited

Crux, since when is being able to buy something a criterion of it being socially abhorrent? Keep in mind, BTW, that the companies pulled the items voluntarily; no government involved. OTOH, the swastika is officially banned in Germany because it represents a shameful part of its history. So, we're s...

Re: Song of the South Revisited

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe on Tuesday said he was taking steps to remove the Confederate flag from his state’s license plates, saying the image sends the wrong message to the rest of the world. “Even its display on state issued license tags is, in my view, unnecessarily divisive and hurtful to t...

Re: The Lunatic Fringe - Examples & Comments

Why is this story more interesting than any tabloid journalism one sees on the supermarket checkout line? This woman is either a little off or a con artist? (I'm going with the former.) It resonates in the same way the film I Passed for White did in the early 1960's. Here's the NYT review: I PASSED ...

Finally, Lott argued, for the Violence Policy Center’s assertions to be true, it would mean that banning all guns would dramatically decrease murders — a claim he said is “completely false.” “Every single time — and not just in places like Washington or Chicago, but around the world — that you’ve h...
