Boys who Scout

This incredible letter to the Boy Scouts of America makes me so happy to read.  This organization is so creepy and cult like but I get that fraternity, tradition and structure are important to a lot of people.  However, BSA is so fully of shit when it comes to queers and atheists and this letter is such a responsible, thoughtful response.  The Supreme Court Case he references is BSA v. Dale

You can see more letters at Newsfeed & NY Times

Celebrities putting their fame to good use

I'm one of the few who never liked Seinfeld.  I'm east-coast, urban, and Jewish enough to get all the jokes but I just could never get into it.  I am however extremely into Jason Alexander!  This is such an awesome response to CO.

Guns make you crazy

There are some tangents but I like this article highlighting one aspect of how full of shit the adage "Guns don't kill people, people kill people" is.


For real, now Chick-Fil-A is hating on the Muppets.  Where will their evil take them next?

By the way, did anyone else hear of this place for the first time after it made news for opposing same-sex marriage?  I assume it's because I've never lived south of the Mason-Dixon line or in a fly-over state.

Thomas Friedman

I was reading a Wonkette article about everyone's favorite "centrist" philistine, Thomas Friedman, and found this funny video about him, and his facial hair, that you may enjoy.
A place for me to share things from the internets that I think are funny/interesting/worth your time if your politics are like mine.
