It’s past time for such a hashtag (for those who “do” Twitter, anyway, I not being one of them) to become popular. This tragic incident in France pretty much demands it. #BelieveHer gained popularity without any justification whatsoever, so even in today’s clown world this new hashtag should go viral, since justice still hasn’t beenContinue reading “#DontBelieveThem”
But if so, I hope to God some alt-right news organization picks him up.

Alex Trebek, host of Jeopardy for the last 36 years, died this morning at the age of 80 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. I’m not a big fanContinue reading “Requiescet In Pace, Alex”
