Er, sorry, you still read newspapers because why now?


The Chicago Tribune’s Ron Grossman writes:
I took a quick survey in the newsroom the other day, something between a Rorschach test and a pop quiz, asking younger colleagues to identify an iconic photograph [see photo above] of World War II.
While some instantly recognized the image, others couldn’t quite place it.
Extremely disturbing on many levels.

Is the Texas Board of Education Conservative — or Honest?


Have you heard of Phyllis Schlafly? Do you believe liberals are responsible for civil rights? Do you understand the consequences of Title IX? Are you aware that Germans and Italians were interned during World War II along with the Japanese? These are just some of the issues that have been debated for years in states [...]

Tom Hanks Is At It Again, Says Overcoming Racism Is Taking US “An Awfully Long Time” and Calls WWII a War of “Racism and Terror”


Can a sane friend or relative of actor Tom Hanks please tell him to stop talking? Seriously, what’s wrong with that guy? First he says that the U.S. wanted to “annihilate” the Japanese “because they were different,” now he adds, in a sad tone of voice, that it is taking his country “an awfully long [...]

Its subject: Tom Hanks said recently that America wanted to ”annihilate the Japanese because they were different.” Yes, seriously:
He is pleased that [...]

Paul Krugman’s Parallel Universes


New York Times’ columnist Paul Krugman wrote an op-ed piece today entitled “Senator Bunning’s Universe.”  Krugman attacks Bunning for temporarily holding up a temporary extension of unemployment benefits.  Then he broadens his attack on ”Planet G.O.P” in general.
Today, Democrats and Republicans live in different universes, both intellectually and morally.
Of course, in Krugman’s view the Republicans live [...]

Anti-Muslim College Columnist Attacks Those Who Fight Islamofascism


The one who stands up for the woman being caned is “anti-Muslim,” right?
Is it accurate to describe those who opposed Nazi totalitarianism in World War II as “anti-German”? How about those who fought against the Stalinists in the USSR during the Cold War? Were they “anti-Russian”?
Such arguments are absurd. Anyone who would suggest it would [...]
