'Party of Science' Flouts Biology on Gender Identity

Let me surprise you with the following statement: I sympathize with transgender individuals that they would prefer to use the bathroom of the gender they have selected. If you've gone through that kind of transformation, I suspect that it is generally a one-way street and you never want to go back.

Growing up, Larry Keenan didn't have a lot of rules. He didn't need them - a simple stare got his point across. But one thing all my siblings understood was this: Getting a job was a top priority. Dad's expression, forever burned in my brain, was "You need to learn the value of a dollar."

The Normalization of Trump Has Begun

On NBC News the other night, anchorman Lester Holt reported that Donald Trump was pivoting to a more presidential image. In the measured tones that we commonly associate with "objectivity," Holt said: "Trump's comments appear to signal a more moderate shift..."

The Ugly, Ugly Presidential Campaign

Oh dear. Not pretty. The upcoming presidential campaign is ugly now and destined to ratchet up to epic uglier as soon as Bernie Sanders decides to bow out. Which is imminent. Not soon enough for Hillary Clinton, but not long.
