UK Supreme Court rules Boris Johnson’s suspension of Parliament was illegal.

Boris Johnson's decision to suspend Parliament was unlawful, the UK Supreme Court has ruled. Johnson prorogued Parliament for five weeks earlier this month, saying it was to allow a Queen's Speech to outline his new policies. But the UK's highest court said it was wrong to stop Parliament carrying out its duties. The New York Times reports: The unanimous decision, which upheld a ruling from Scotland’s highest civil court, could force the government to reconvene Parliament before Oct. 14, reopening a debate over Brexit that was short-circuited when Mr. Johnson asked the queen to suspend, or prorogue, Parliament for five weeks. “The decision [...]

Open Letter: Dear President Obama, I miss you.

Dear President Obama, I’m not the nostalgic type, it just isn’t in my nature.  It’s ridiculous to think of 2008-2016 as “the good ol’ days.”  That kind of wistfulness is reserved for my parents’ generation. But I truly miss having you as the leader of our country.  I miss who we were when you were President. I miss having an eloquent president who draws on his actual knowledge, answering questions thoughtfully and rationally. Now we have a village idiot, stringing together superfluous long words to mimic intelligence.  I miss having a president who so clearly loves and is devoted to his family. Now we have [...]

Open letter: Dear Mark Bingham

Dear Mark, On September 11th, 2001, you and your fellow passengers on United Flight 93 overpowered the hijackers and forced the plane to crash into a field in Pennsylvania, thwarting further attacks on Washington DC and saving countless lives.

And yours includes acknowledgement of the fact that you were gay.  Mark Bingham   On the day you sacrificed your life, gays could not serve openly in the military, our relationships were disdained and ignored by the federal government, and [...]
