I thought "educators" were all in on respecting and treating cultural minorities with dignity. I thought wrong.

An 8-year-old Wyandotte Nation boy was ordered to cut his hair short by R.V. Haderlein Elementary school in Kansas's Girard School District. His mother did so after being told by Joni Benso, assistant principal at the school, that no exemptions to male dress codes would be made for religious or tribal reasons and that "she needed to cut his hair over the weekend or he would be sent home." The ACLU now demands that the schools rescind this policy.

18 Reasons Why You Really Need An Electric Car

In the world of electric vehicles, where the allure of green technology meets the practicality of everyday life, there are those who embrace the electric revolution with a unique flair.

Enter the unapologetic connoisseur of contradictions, the embodiment of the unexpected, the aficionado of electric eccentricities, and a character worthy of exploration.

Here are 18 reasons why you really need an electric car:

1. You’re a Tolstoy enthusiast who’s never quite conquered the monumental War and Peace.

Fear not, for that long charging queue becomes your literary sanctuary where you can immerse yourself in 1,225 pages of Russian opulence while your electric steed gains its much-needed energy boost.

2. Fine dining at Chiswick, Margaret, and Quay is a given, but have you truly lived until you’ve sampled the delights of the local servo?

Post-War and Peace, dive into the exquisite world of slurpees, gristly meat pies, and try-hard coffee at the gas station. Breakfast and lunch might just be a charging queue away. YOLO.

Bill Maher is our friendly liberal clock. He's correct twice a day.

Bill Maher Throws in Towel on Biden Run, Explains Why 'Clean-Up' in San Fran Is Sign 'Trump Is Winning'

Bill Maher is still a Democrat, but he often has interesting things to say because he's willing to call out his side for their radical behavior.

He's also warning them now that he thinks that former President Donald Trump is "winning" and explaining why Joe Biden is going to lose.

To be honest with you, I'm a bit amazed someone who is normal won.

OH GOODY!!! This will be the one and only cookbook you will ever need.

Will climate cookbooks change how we eat?
Sustainable diets have been around for ages, but an emerging cookbook genre signals a new appetite for change.

itchen Arts & Letters, a legendary cookbook store on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, is tiny — just 750 square feet — but not an inch of space is wasted. With roughly 12,000 different cookbooks and a staff of former chefs and food academics, it’s the land of plenty for those seeking guidance beyond the typical weekday recipe.

One table is piled high with new cookbooks about ramen, eggs, and the many uses of whey, the overflow stacked in leaning towers above the shelves along the walls. One bookcase is packed with nothing but titles about fish. And next to a robust vegetarian section at the back of the store, tucked in a corner, is a minuscule collection of cookbooks about sustainability and climate change.

Except for the Deplorable Gourmet Hey Christmas is right around the corner.

Don't want to go to Aunt Eileen's for Thanksgiving dinner? You could always cop out and say you have the Kung Flu.

Two Thanksgivings after the super-hyped omicron COVID-19 variant hardly killed anyone, the Mainstream Infotainment Complex is doing what little it can to drum up more concern over a virus that's mellowed more than, say, a certain PJ Media columnist following a large dinner and a larger brandy.

I don't even know what variant we're on any longer, nor do I care. And I'm not alone, despite the media's best bad intentions.

The Chicago Sun-Times warned on Sunday that COVID hospitalizations are up a big 17% over the last week, but the story neglects to mention one vital detail: A 17% increase over what? If the number were a great big scary one, I imagine they might have published it.

This Times of India story about how the U.S. faces a "COVID winter wave and hospitalization" is adorned with photos of sick (but attractive!) young women, even though the virus typically hits the oldest the hardest. But that Karen-panic isn't going to monger itself, comrades.

Needles. Yarns. Grannies. Some assembly required for Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

For over twenty years, a colorful collective of ladies residing at a senior living community in Dallas have crafted thousands of hand-knit items, bringing warmth and support to children both in Texas and overseas.

And, with sass and swing, they call themselves the Knit Wits.

Every Friday, they gather around a long table with yarn and knitting needles to lend a hand from their home at Edgemere—and their latest project is a collaboration with Children’s Health in Dallas to create homemade caps for infants facing heart problems.
