Sandra Bland: A Black Woman's Life Finally Matters

For the past two weeks, I have carried Sandra Bland with me everywhere I go. At first, it was a smiling image of her that haunted my thoughts; she is dressed in what looks to be a black blazer and white blouse, one of her baby locs creeping out of place and sitting squarely on her forehead. She’s wearing big earrings,… » 7/28/15 4:18pm 28 minutes ago

Adam Sandler Has a Hell of a Lot to Answer For

What Exactly Was it About Kaitlyn Bristowe?

Did you watch The Bachelorette? Me neither, but that won’t stop me from talking about it.

Camille Paglia: Bill Cosby Is a Necrophiliac, Monica Lewinsky a Ghoul

Camille Paglia is doing a long, three-part interview with Salon to celebrate the triumphantly annoying return of the ‘90s in the form of Bill Cosby, Bush vs. Clinton, political correctness, and, of course, Camille Paglia.

Macy Gray Loves Her Vibrator So Much That She Wrote a Song About Him

Macy Gray is in love with her vibrator. His name is Bob, he “fits like a glove,” and she wrote a delightful little song in his honor.
