One imagines that the mind of the president is constantly occupied by the fate of the free world. This probably explains, for instance, why George W. Bush could barely read. Lyndon B. Johnson, though, was not your average president, for various reasons, but quite prominently that he was very concerned about the state… » 3/30/15 4:25pm Yesterday 4:25pm

Bad Frats: A Rolling Account of This Year's Fraternity Fuck-Ups


Fraternities in America have spent 2015 more or less acting as if the rules of law and decency do not apply to them.

A Hockey Game Happened To Sarah Jessica Parker Last Night

On the one hand, you can definitely say that Sarah Jessica Parker was physically in attendance at last night's hockey game between the New York Rangers and Los Angeles Kings.

Ted Cruz's Audience Thought His Announcement Speech Was a Load of Crap

Ted Cruz officially announced his presidential candidacy today at Jerry Falwell's Liberty University, and though you could scarcely imagine a safer spot for a Republican to deliver an obligatory and ultimately worthless speech, many of the students in attendance were very willing to see through Cruz's rhetoric. » 3/23/15 2:15pm 3/23/15 2:15pm

Here's the Internal Memo from Starbucks' Disastrous Race-Relations Push

Everybody hates Starbucks' absurdly stupid "Race Together" initiative, but the people who hate it the most are probably the baristas, who have been asked by their wealthy bosses to bear the responsibility of starting discussions about American racism... at Starbucks. A tipster sent us a photo of what she says is the… » 3/19/15 5:25pm 3/19/15 5:25pm

SAE Is Secretly Trying To Wipe Away Its Confederate History

After its University of Oklahoma chapter got kicked off campus for singing a racist song, Sigma Alpha Epsilon would very much like you to believe that there is no racism engrained in the organization itself.

Did a Religious Conspiracy Drive a Missouri Politician to Suicide?

Tom Schweich was not supposed to become national news this early, and certainly not for this reason.
