When they are not busy tormenting transgendered people, immigrants, or teachers (because heaven forbid their students should read books about real life), Florida Republicans are thinking up brand-new draconian laws to get them kids back to work like they...
Adam Frisch must be one happy dude these days. The Colorado Democrat who hopes to unseat Rep. Lauren Boebert has raised a titanic-sized campaign war chest, and I can't help but think the scandal-plagued Boebert may be out of...
If you didn't believe in karma before, this has to make a believer out of you. It certainly would me. Cast your mind back (ye who are old, like me) to the late '70's. Does the name Anita Bryant...

The anti-LGBT hysteria has never made any sense to me. Or, hysteria over people exercising free will in a lot of "forbidden" activities and substances, period. For instance, I remember many years ago attending a gay wedding, before it...
