How Feminists Judge: “He Looks Rape-y”


The aftermath of my column
For the past two days, I have been embroiled in an enormous campus controversy concerning a column I wrote criticizing the concept of “date rape” and decrying the victim-based ideology of the sexual left.

Abdulmutallab Stops Talking After Being Read Miranda Rights – WSJ.com


The attempted Christmas Day destruction over Detroit of Northwest Flight 253 by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab is fading from public memory as a fortunate near-miss. This incident should not fade from view. As more information emerges, the picture it paints about the antiterror mindset of the current U.S. government is—there is no other word—scary. Last week […]

James Kirchick: Why shouldn’t we waterboard Abdulmutallab? – Daily News

Kurt Loder: Avatar’s hackneyed politics – MTV Movie News


Unfortunately, whenever the action lets up and we’re returned to the piddling story, the picture slumps like a failed soufflé.
