I Should Have Been A Girl Scout

Not that I have any unresolved gender issues (ok, maybe a few, see Twain about candlesticks and their holders) but simply because it’s an all together more worthwhile organization than Boy Scouts. My experience in the BSA was horrible and I regret every Jackass minute I spent watching a bunch of idiots trying to light …

Simon Doesn’t Say

In the new news Theresa May’s attempt to save her Prime Ministership by entering an arrangement with the Democratic Unionist Party of Northern Ireland is still an undone deal a week after the British Parliament Elections.

Liberal Rhetoric

Senator Tillis, I think you probably know who I am. I am the mother of a young man who died because he lacked access to health care. You had me arrested for trying to speak to you when you were Speaker of the House in North Carolina about the importance of access to health care. …
