This is so cool...
Two decades after the end of the beloved comic strip "Calvin and Hobbes," its reclusive creator collaborated with another cartoonist to draw and secretly publish three new comics.

Thanks for the heads up. I was wondering where the new "style" was coming from. Two very cool Artists. Plus passing it off as a second grader... Genius!

How did things get this bad? The prison industrial complex in America remains one of the most neglected and arguably most impactful problems in the country today.
After monitoring Los Angeles County's jails for 12 years, the Justice Dept. is stepping in to improve conditions for mentally ill inmates.

Two big developments for same-sex marriage. Wisconsin overturns same-sex marriage ban and a lawsuit has been filed in North Dakota to challenge the state's ban on same-sex marriage. 

North Dakota was the last state to have not challenged a ban on same-sex marriage, until today.
A federal judge ruled June 6 Wisconsin's ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional.

Le mariage de deux personnes de même sexe divise les Etats. En rdc, cela n'interesse plus même les représentants du peuple. Ce mariage resulte d'une emmanation humaine et aura des conséquences néfastes, à la longue, aux Etats qui le pratiquant. où va-t-on?

Some may thrive for years while others may get acquired, and still others may go nowhere. But all will be worth watching.
