October 2, 2015 at 1:19 pm

Earlier this week Republicans grilled Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards regarding the use of federal funding to perform abortions.

Two men, two betrayals, and two very different endings. Judas is greedy for thirty pieces of silver and sells out his friend to the awaiting authorities with an insincere kiss on a cheek. Peter waits in the darkening courtyard and calls down curses from heaven as he denies any knowledge […]

In June of 1970, Pirates pitcher Dock Ellis threw a no hitter. There have been some 250 such events in the modern era of baseball, but few have matched the unique performance of Ellis that day because Dock was high-as-a-kite, tripping on LSD. Ellis’s struggle with substance abuse is well […]

In a recent NY Times op-ed titled “Why I Can’t Forgive Dylann Roof” Roxane Gay gives voice to years of frustration over senseless racism and violence against blacks. It is understandable. It is raw and it is honest. But it is also incredibly dangerous. We live in an age that staunchly […]

Like all failure, both […]
