What's it going to take to change? How much cruelty and injustice are we willing to allow in our names and with our money?

+Dinesh D'Souza s blunt, in-your-face racism's hard to ignore. Where's it come from? +The New Republic's Jeet Heer makes a convincing argument for "good", old-fashioned, immigrant self-hatred.

My takeaway from this time-lapse-on-steroids-and-Adderall video from Dubai: Whether you're an artist or a nation-state...it rocks to be rich.

Normally wouldn't share a "weatherperson doing improv" clip, but this guy made some great lemonade outta typo lemons.
FOX 10 Phoenix weatherman Cory McCloskey faced a potentially flummoxing conundrum when his weather map began displaying fantastically high temperatures on a recent broadcast. Rather than get fluste...

"What we know is that if a woman is going to be killed by a firearm, she’s most likely to be killed by a current or former intimate partner. What we know is where there are more guns, more women die. That’s just incontrovertibly true."

Hat tip and empty holsters to +David Dobbs​.

Sorry to inundate you with sociopolitical articles this morning, but I found this one so well-articulated and, better yet, well-reasoned that I had to share.

"But if a skinny blonde in an ugly wig tells me that blowing hot air up my vagina is going to cure everything I’ve ever suffered from, including a bad relationship with my mother, well, then, I’m gonna listen to Gwyneth Paltrow, because girlfriend knows science."
