In The News

Here is some stuff in the news today!

Care of the Supreme Court's garbage gutting of the Voter Rights Act, the state of Florida will be able to resume its voter purge.

A couple in Virgina is challenging the state's ban on same-sex marriage. Good luck, gentlemen! You are brave and awesome!

A federal judge orders $1 million wrongly confiscated by police be returned to the woman who "saved the money $1 at a time during her 15 year career as an exotic dancer." With interest. GOOD.

[Content Note: Racism] Ted Nugent continues to be remarkably terrible.

[Content Note: Racism] Three producers have been fired, and one has resigned, following the on-air reading of fake racist names purported to be those of the Asiana pilots involved in a deadly crash.

George H.W. Bush is less terrible than his son. (Which son? Any of them.)

[Content Note: Sexual harassment] Another day; another allegation of sexual harassment against San Diego Mayor Bob Filner.

Do you want to read an interview with Nicolas Cage? He is such a weirdo. I mean that in a good way! I have spent many hours of my life being entertained by terrible and/or great films starring Nicolas Cage in a wig!

Beth Ditto married her girlfriend Kristin Ogata in Maui and they looked ridiculously cute, of course!

Definitely the best thing in the news today, or any other day, ever, is this little girl who dance-bombed the local news:
