I can understand if Rick Santorum wants to prosecute pornographers on the grounds that explicit fare encourages non-marital sex, promotes the use of birth control or saps vital fluids. I would think he's off-base, but he'd at least have a plausible case....
I've long been on record in favor of allowing gays to marry. So you'd think I'd welcome the federal appeals court ruling that the California ban known as Proposition 8 violates the Constitution. But I don't. In fact, I think it will only help the...
There's a scene in Season 4 of "Friday Night Lights" when Matt Saracen says that thanks to living above a coffee shop, he gets a caffeine buzz just breathing as he walks up the stairs. Old girlfriend Julie Taylor says it's impossible to inhale caffeine....
