Christmas contraceptives

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Bernie Sanders takes on the Koch brothers.

If you can erase the word, the action never happened.  Right?

Institutionalized racism is hard to root out.

Chipping away at contraceptives.  And women aren't choosing to have more babies, they're just wiser with their birth control methods.  Cutting through the deliberately confusing terminology used when discussing abortion.

Christmas is coming

My house is a wreck but at least we have the tree up.  Although it IS leaning a bit to the left....

Why is it that my kids' finals and helping research for internships means a pile of files being searched for transcripts and heaps of papers fluttering about while stepping over stacks of books and trying to get Christmas lists filled means finally giving cash to family members instead of trying to make sense of their Amazon wish lists while laundry heaps twitchily become sentient and move slowly towards the door.

At least I got the dishes done.  I couldn't see the faucet.
