It is no longer open season on those disgusting creatures that are the scourge of life in the Big Apple, to name one present-day urban center. No, the reference is not to Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his crew. It is to cockroaches.
Deborah Cotton is a “multimedia journalist and cultural advocate” who was one of 19 injured when a gunman opened fire on attendees at a Mother’s Day parade.
With apologies to Winston Churchill, it might be said of Sen. Barbara Boxer that “those that fail to learn from history are doomed to rewrite it.” During a Senate floor speech Tuesday, The Daily Caller writes, the Democratic senator from California blamed the tornado that ravaged Oklahoma on global warming.
If there is anything positive that can be said about a workshop held at the University of Central Florida last month it is that you cannot contract gonorrhea by touching sex organs made out of Play-doh.
Campus Reform reports that the workshop was conducted by a “sex expert” (sexpert?) from a local adult toy store called Fairvilla. It is not clear what educational value is to be derived from learning to carve genitals out of modeling clay, but the event, titled “Finals? That blows,” also included a condom hunt.
German theologian Martin Niemöller is enjoying a mini-renaissance. In the last 24 hours, his famous exhortation to rise up against tyranny before it’s too late (“When they came for me, there was no one left to speak out”) has appeared in two columns.

America is getting frustrated with this administration’s fight to keep the truth behind its three current scandals under wraps. As frustrated as the public may be, Congress, who is in charge of finding out the truth is even more frustrated. Yesterday’s performance by White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer, who appeared on all five Sunday News programs, was at best ridiculous. It seemed as if he answered each and every question with “that’s irrelevant.”
Yesterday, during an appearance on Fox News Sunday, White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer defended President Obama’s statement that he knew nothing about the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups until he learned about it through the media. “No president would get involved in an independent IRS investigation,” Pfeiffer said. “It would be wholly inappropriate.”
Thanks to sequestration, there is not enough money in the government coffers to keep “the people’s house” (aka the White House) open for tours. You’ll be pleased to know, however, that there’s plenty of money — $75,000 worth — for prison poetry.
