Do you have friends, relatives, neighbors, or co-workers who are just waking up, shaking their heads, and asking, “WTF happened?”

  • Fight back against a brutal cop and be charged with a federal hate crime? Bad idea. Very bad.
  • A sex worker describes the harm the feds’ seizure of Backpage is doing to her.
  • Venmo is a peer-to-peer payments network. Venmo is also a social network. Why the hell would you want friends and casual strangers to see where you’re spending your money? Unless for some goofy reason you actually want them track and speculate about your activities. 9 Comments

  • Wow. Last night’s White House Correspondents Dinner must have been the fiasco of fiascos. Even the NYT and CNN are decrying the nasty attacks comedian Michelle Wolf made against Trump (who wasn’t there) and Sarah Huckabee Sanders (who was).
  • The inimitable Scott Greenfield slams it to those regressive fools who are cutting their own (and civilization’s) throat by dismissing free speech as nothing but a right-wing dog whistle.
  • Two on Alfie Evans: where is Jimmy Kimmel’s voice now; and Britain’s new Berlin Wall. 27 Comments
