Loyal readers know that I was killed a few days ago in a freak accident involving President Bush, Martin Heidegger, and some smack. I spent the weekend goofing off in my new disembodied state — floating around the house, stealing socks out of the dryer, scooting Molly’s ball all around the floor like it’s alive […]

Whenever I’m looking for thoughtful social commentary on the most challenging issues of the day, I turn to Speide Bahl

Speide Bahl is an anti-choicer and an anti-feminist, it’s true, but unlike so many of his tribe, he’s also an original thinker. Time after time Bahl has brought a new perspective to the problems that divide Americans, and his most recent contribution to the abortion debate is no exception.

This Borg-like creature maintained control of the blog for several days, until an emergency intervention by a crack team of lolkitteh […]

My encounter Wednesday night with the awesome BlogWarBot: ***** BlogWarBot: I’m BlogWarBot. Are you one of those radical feminists? Guest: Yes! BlogWarBot: You seem awfully positive. Did you read Rand as a child? Guest: Ayn Rand? No. Not until my twenties, actually. BlogWarBot: That’s the problem with people like you. You’re never constructive about anything. […]
