Modern Men Need to Embrace Their Dads and Granddads

The state of the American male is in shambles, and I cite three pieces of evidence as proof:

Bill Cosby and Due Process

Prosecutions are like snowflakes, no two the same. Sometimes, you have a low-profile drunken-driving case where the defendant is a first-time offender, the district attorney is willing to offer a plea deal, and no one except the parties involved will ever know about it.

Bill Clinton's Sexual History? Really? Again?

And in the Durst household, we percolate sardonically cynical predictions for the upcoming 12 months.

2016: What To Expect

It's hard to believe, but we're on the brink of another presidential election year. Let us pray. Every quadrennial, the American political process plays out as a big-top carnival sideshow featuring moral contortionists, ethical geeks and fat sweaty white guys teetering on slack media wires.
