So Much More Than Just a Dog
by
There was no traffic at 3am. That’s good in one respect as I needed to get my dog to the Emergency Animal Hospital and it’s horrible in another respect in that I knew what would happen when we got there. There was a little more traffic at 4:30am, when I drove back to my house [&hellip

What do you think was the theme for this year’s International Women’s Day? Under the Sea? Ladies drink free? No, it was #PledgeForParity. That may sound less exciting than the standard prom theme but since women won’t achieve political or economic parity for something like 117 goddam years I’m literally seeing red from my pending

Is abortion the only issue where both sides of the argument claim to be pro? With capital punishment, you’re pro or anti. Gun control? Pro or anti. Same-sex marriage? Pro or anti.
