With the exception of maybe Barack Obama, whom they’ve irrationally loathed with […]

Scientists have been predicting it all along: As the climate changes dramatically, we’re going to see diseases where we’ve never seen them before, where people have no antibodies. I for one would like to grab those “pro life” climate deniers by the shoulders and shake some sense into them: “See what you’ve done?” Now this: […]

Creep or normal guy?

This piece appeared a year ago, but someone just posted it on Facebook, which is where I saw it for the first time.
