John D. Carlson
On behalf of all the dust balls who cannot speak for themselves, I feel that it is incumbent upon me to express a measure of indignant outrage at their — that is, the dust balls — stereotypical portrayal as being intolerantly homophobic (“Gay people living openly with homophobic dust balls” illustration by cartoonist P.S.

Okie local


Commentary

Jason Reese
Conservatives, especially those of a traditional bent like me, are often rightfully criticized for being downers. We gripe and moan about how things were better in the old days and that we don’t know where we are headed, but it sure looks like we are in a handbasket.
