    Hysterics will always find reasons to wax hysterical. If you don’t get a bloody putsch, spin frivolous lawsuits into a coup attempt.

    I think the central argument over abortion is whether a fetus is a human being or not. The rest is distraction. If your answer is no, the economic, political and gender equity arguments make sense....

    Some of my neighbors work for corporations too.

    Privileging one form of business organization over another doesn’t have the effect of somehow sequestering wealth within a community. And if it...

    Maybe. Or maybe little kids will just treat these performances like most moral improvement projects adults put in their path and forget them after they’ve endured them. Sort of like a woke version of...

    We got a lot of “buy local” messages this year. Personally, I’m not sure that money can be penned up within the city limits that way. It seems to me that all capital is global capital.
