I reported earlier this morning about The Great Oberlin College Racism Hoax of 2013. An open question is who knew what and when.  Clearly the Oberlin administration and the local police were aware of the culprits and that it was a hoax prior to the campus rallies. But what about the Board of…

My first reaction when I saw this on Twitter was, is this a joke? The day after being sentenced to 35 years in prison, this? Apparently it’s serious.  Manning announced on NBC via a letter that he will sue to force the Army to pay for hormone therapy, and presumably a…

There has been an important ruling on a court case involving the construction of California’s budget-busting high speed train.
