What did you read over break? Here’s what ended up on my list.
It’s been a banner week at the Washington Post; they’ve earned top billing this week for publishing George Will’s latest inanity (though the New York Post has equal blame for that one) and an article that used completely irrelevant data to victim-blame single moms who are abused. Good job, assholes. Let’s see who else is keeping them […]
Oh, misogyny. It never stops, does it? This week we’re catching up on three weeks worth of awful, so brace yourselves. Plus, you get to find out why I’m not friends with very many people from high school! (Yes, it’s disgustingly relevant and you probably already saw the story.) As usual, trigger warnings for pretty […]
End Of The Week News
Oh, lovely kids, rejoice! We have returned to another week of the news. Like the days that rise and fall, what happens in our world changes at the drop of a coin. Of course, it’s easy to wax poetic if you’re like me, who, in a recent attempt to indulge my sanity, has been avoiding […]
The Midweek News: At Least It’s Shark Week
The world is a terrible place. That’s why Shark Week exists. To remind us that there are awesome things out in the world. But let’s look at the not-so-awesome stuff first.

Mid-Week News: The Damn Miracle
Kittens, it’s Wednesday. That means we have survived another few days, which is a damn miracle if you gauge it by how last week went. Lord, I’m surprised we made it this far.
End of the Week News: Well Thank Goodness
Welcome back, muffins, kittens, poodles, and the rest of you end-of-the-week seekers.
News Appetizers: Mittens Is Shittens
Muffins, kittens, poodles, and mittens, oh, here we are again. Yes, here we are, taking to the brimming hob-gob of news, highlighting the events that are enough to send us screaming for the mountains, the hills, the ditches, and the whatever natural landmark you care for. Always a trip, always a small mental price to […]
Well hello kittens, I see you have returned for another week of the news.
A Few Thoughts on “D.C. vs. NYC”
I wanted to talk about the little Washington Post piece from yesterday about former New Yorkers living in Washington, D.C. I’m not an expert on many things, but think I am uniquely qualified to address this particular topic.
Badass Women’s History: Jerri Nielsen
The posts that so many other awesome Persephoneers have been making for Women’s History Month have left me feeling so inspired. History is not my strongest subject: dates and names don’t tend to stick very well in my mind, I have found myself struggling with history papers and exams for years “¦ and yet, I […]
Check back here at 9 PM EST, when Selena and I will be offering up our wittiest, most insightful commentary about President Obama’s speech. We’ll attempt to balance out all the undoubtedly heavy topics he’s likely to discuss with our brand of levity, except when he talks about job creation, at which point I, for […]
Today, Congress reconvenes for the lame duck session, and boy, do the Democrats have a lot of turkey on their plate! By “turkey,” I mean bills they either a) were unable to pass because of Republican filibustering or b) didn’t even attempt to pass because they knew the Republicans would filibuster them.
