Something close to treason

Last week, Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid said the war is lost. It's taken me a while to cool down from wanting to kick a certain senior senator from the state of Nevada where the sun don't shine. While Reid's white-flag-of-surrender moment wasn't altogether unsurprising, what that statement prompted him to do a few days […]

Lewis Black on Earth Day

Lewis Black's comedy can be R-rated at times. But he's generally PG-13 when appearing on Comedy Central. This clip had me practically rolling on the floor when I first saw it. I loved the Matt Damon clip. Matt Damon: If your house is anything like mine... Lewis Black: Stop. It's not. It's a lot smaller. […]

So this must be the second time

Rosie O'Donnell, structural engineer: "(The collapse of World Trade Center 7 on 9/11) is the first time in the history of the world that fire has ever melted steel."

Getting what you wish for

Back when The New York Times was offloading some of its far-flung newspapers years ago, the Santa Barbara News-Press was one of those put on the chopping block. Make no mistake, the Times pays well, and people at the News-Press were worried that their new owner wouldn't be so generous -- both with pay and […]

Common sense

I don't feel a lot of schadenfraude at learning this news: The French dislike themselves even more than the Americans dislike them, according to an opinion poll published on Friday. The survey of six nations, carried out for the International Herald Tribune daily and France 24 TV station, said 44 percent of French people thought […]

Free speech victory

The Washington State Supreme Court smacked down several governmental entities that sought to silence supporters of an initiative that would've repealed a hike in the state gas tax.

Abortion hurts women

When last we visited Boston Globe columnist Ellen Goodman on the issue of abortion, she was exposed here as a liar. In Friday's column, Goodman, predictably rails against the recent Supreme Court decision outlawing what Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan once described as uncomfortably close to "infanticide." Goodman's column is full of things that you've read […]
