  • Subtle, Very Subtle

    29 Aug 2014 | 3:29 am
    By now you should all have learned that Governor Corbett, behind in the polls by double digits and presumably in desperate need of an election year boost, has announced:...that the state has secured agreement with the federal government to implement the portion of his Healthy Pennsylvania plan that will improve and bring financial stability to the state’s Medicaid program so that the state can increase access to quality, affordable health care through the private insurance market.In the words of Kate Giammarise at the P-G:Pennsylvania’s working poor could start receiving subsidized health…
  • Jon Stewart on The Rightwing Outrage Over Ferguson

    28 Aug 2014 | 3:11 am
    From the Washington Post:Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly, Andrea Tantaros, and other Fox News personalities all get torched in a 10-minute riff by the Daily Show’s Jon Stewart on race in America. The host starts by noting how O’Reilly was “furious” over the media reaction to the Aug. 9 police shooting of unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown Jr. — though perhaps not too “furious” over the shooting itself.Here's the clip.Stewart ends with this:Race is there. It is a constant. You're tired of hearing about it? Imagine how f**king exhausting it is, living it.

  • Professor Harris-Perry Has The Floor Again

    26 Aug 2014 | 3:05 am
    And shows us all how it's done.  Again.Crooks and Liars has the set up:Melissa Harris-Perry did a nice job of taking apart Villager Joe Klein for his "cringe-worthy" op-ed he wrote this week for Time, where he did his best to malign Michael Brown for his own shooting and opined about the need to have an honest discussion about race relations in the United States. That discussion, as Harris-Perry discussed in her commentary above, is something Klein really doesn't seem ready to have yet when you dissect his article. And here's Professor Harris-Perry's analysis (cringe-worthy yes, but…
  • Yea, This Is Disappointing

    24 Aug 2014 | 10:14 am
    Usually, I love watching John Oliver on HBO.  Usually, he's funny, moving, and completely right.Last week, however, I watched as he got caught up in the Gender Gap story.And, he got the story wrong.We've written about this before but I guess it might be a good idea to revisit the issue, if only to point out Oliver's mistakes.  The biggest mistake happens whenever Oliver uses the phrase "for equal work" except when he says this about 5 minutes in:Paying people less for the same work is clearly wrong.I could not agree more.  The problem Oliver has is where and what to other…

    Do not be fooled by this angelic little face. This kid is having the worst week of her life. My return to work has turned her world upside-down, but C'MON, WE DID THIS THE NICE WAY. Baby steps, that is. Instead of surging straight into daycare, the kid has a whole week of hanging out with dad. Throw in the little bit of continuity that is her sister, and life shouldn't be that rough. Shouldn't be. But it is. Despite being in the same house with mostly the same routine as most of the rest of her life, poor Mila is so angry about every little change. So, so angry. Which is to say, she's really…

    We all have flaws in our character and if you say you don't, there it is. There's your flaw. You lack self-awareness. I have many, many, MANY flaws, of course. I'd put "lets words fall out of mouth before thinking" at the top of that list. For Alexis, that list would start with "can't see the grey area." What I mean by that is that her world is very black and white. There is no grey. For example, if her cheer coach says the girls need to stand with their hands on their hips between cheers, by god, the child is going to stand with her hands on her hips. A swarm of bees could land on her…

Imagine a place where you can walk on water or relax under the shade of succulents. Imagine a place where sharks swim amongst the humans and fish photobomb your kids. Imagine a place where larger than life rock stars shrink to mortal sizes. Now imagine that all of this were just 90 minutes away from home. Because it is. Yinz, this is Cleveland. Now, hold up.

Traditional Mopping: Pros: It is inexpensive. It provides good workout for the body. Better for taking care of stubborn dirt or stain. Cons: Requires extra detergent. Makes…

Here’s a look at what we learned about the final shaping of that roster against Carolina. The team lacks a solid, consistent backup QB The Steelers have a…

    Steelers wrap lackluster preseason with loss to Panthers By Alan Robinson http://triblive.com/sports/steelers/...#axzz3BkR3e8QM :steelershelmet: Maybe this was the punishment for Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin made them play well into the second quarter of this game. With no one playing close to a complete game, the Steelers earned an “I” for incomplete during another uneven preseason that wrapped up with another dreary effort, a 10-0 loss to the Carolina Panthers on Thursday night at Heinz Field. It was the Steelers' first preseason shutout loss since…

Jarvis Jones proved to his doubters that he could play at this level, but the other second-year Jones, quarterback Landry Jones, did not. Landry Jones had another lackluster performance last night in the Steelers' 10-0 loss to the Carolina Panthers at Heinz Field in the final preseason game. The Steelers finished the preseason with a 1-3 record. The starter in place of Ben Roethlisberger,…
