The Jeffrey Epstein Rorschach Test

On August 10, 1792, a Jacobin mob stormed the Tuileries in Paris, a former residence of the King of France and the site of the present day Louvre. It was the most violent and radical day of the French Revolution, the beginning of the much misunderstood “reign of terror” and one of the most glorious […]

Dead Men Tell No Tells

Everybody of course was predicting this. But sometimes it’s shocking when something everybody knew would happen actually happens.

John Lennon was my First History Teacher

Back when I was in the fifth grade, the United States was celebrating its Bicentennial. Believe if or not, the American Revolution was widely discussed.

Why didn’t she just leave?

It’s almost a cliche now that when a woman is murdered by her boyfriend, some idiot will remark “well why didn’t she just leave?” I know. I’ve made the remark myself. I am that idiot. But here in New Jersey — where we may not be experiencing an epidemic of mass shootings but we are […]

Why are mass murderers always men?

I often point out that we don’t have mass shootings in New Jersey. We’re smart enough to have gun control.

Fuck the Second Amendment: Part II

A gunman killed nine people and injured at least 27 in Dayton, Ohio’s Oregon Historic District shortly after 1 am ET Sunday. The attack was the US’s second mass shooting in 24 hours, following another mass shooting in El Paso, Texas. There’s an obvious solution. Ban guns. There’s a reason why we don’t have […]

Fuck the Second Amendment

Another gun nut protecting his “liberty” against big bad gubbment by shooting up a shopping mall. A gunman opened fire Saturday in a Walmart and around a nearby shopping mall in El Paso, Texas, leaving at least 19 people dead and 40 injured, law enforcement officials said.
