I believe he’s trying to criticize what he perceives as a hagiography, with a time-honored retort to hagiographies: dude, what about all the other people who stepped in to make X happen? Which isn’t unknown; how many times have we seen some unvarnished worshipping of Abraham Lincoln’s freeing of the slaves, without Read more

I read this review the other day and left... confused? I think I re-read it three or four times, and I still couldn’t divine exactly what the fuck the author’s point was. Aside from the BUT WHAT ABOUT THE MEN?!?! bullshit, I think the argument was that we shouldn’t be such fans of Ginsburg because... Trump has Read more

“...a way to rebel against a president who openly vows to fill the nation’s courtrooms with like-minded judges, most of them hostile to the concepts of due process and equal protection that liberals hold dear,” he concludes. Read more

I spent the last few weeks thinking of a tree that we used to have in the backyard of our old house. All those hours I spent under that tree looking up as the sunlight dripped like honey through the leaves. When the thin cold wire of time wasn’t pressing pushing tight against my neck. There was time back then. There’s Read more

Tommy Craggs gave me a second chance. I spent nearly three years writing for a different Gawker site, and I hit a point where I was just done. I couldn’t do it anymore. I was looking elsewhere, and my time at the company was up. I didn’t want to leave though, and in a passing conversation, I told Tommy I felt Read more

As a member of the French aristocracy, I can assure you that we have been living in fear of this voleuse des bon bons for weeks. To know her reign of terror is at an end—that our precious sweets are once again safe from the rabble—is a relief beyond measure.

Oh, I'm sorry. I can't come to the door right now. I'm afraid that in my weakened condition, I could take a nasty spill down the stairs and subject myself to further school absences. You can reach my parents at their places of business. Thank you for stopping by. I appreciate your concern for my well-being. Have a Read more
