  • Wisconsin lawmaker criticized for calling women ‘birthing bodies’ in tweet about abortion

    A Wisconsin Democratic lawmaker was criticized over social media for using the term "birthing bodies" instead of women while tweeting about the potential reversal of Roe V. Wade. State Rep. Francesca Hong made the substitution in a Monday evening tweet following the news of the leak of an alleged draft of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito's majority opinion to revoke the landmark 1973 case. Since the leak, many Democrats have reaffirmed their pro-choice stance. Birthing bodies have the right to freedom. Deciding if or when to become a parent is one of the most personal, life-changing decisions," Hong tweeted....

    A Florida woman who allegedly zipped her boyfriend in a suitcase and left him there to die was arrested Tuesday in his killing. Sarah Boone, 42, of Winter Park, faces a charge of second-degree murder in the death Monday of Jorge Torres Jr. Boone said she was playing a game of hide-and-seek with Torres when she zipped him into a suitcase, thinking it would be funny, according to a report by the Orange County Sheriff's Office. Boone and Torres had allegedly been drinking alcohol, and she said she went upstairs and passed out while Torres was still in the suitcase.

    Twenty years ago, we were all pretty sure the world was going to end on January 1, 2000—or, if not the world, then at least civilization. It had something to do with how most computer programs used the last two digits to represent a four-digit year, and when the clock rolled over at the end of 1999, every computer would think it was 1900. When that happened, ATMs would stop working, the electrical grid would shut down, planes would fall out of the skies, and newborn babies would get hundred-year-old birth certificates.

    Whisper Campaigns and "Zipper Problems": How Jeb Bush's Allies Tried - and Failed - to Stop Marco Rubio. An adaption from the forthcoming book, The Wilderness: Deep Inside the Republican Party's Combative, Contentious, Chaotic Quest to Take Back the White House. On the night of the 2010 midterm elections, a portly, silver-haired Jeb Bush stood on a stage in the courtyard of Miami's luxe Biltmore Hotel, appearing to choke back tears. The beloved former governor of Florida was there to introduce the young conservative insurgent who had just pulled off a remarkable underdog victory in the U.S. Senate race. "Bushes...

    So Memorial Day is over. You had a great time with whomever, but let me guess—it was not so great on the highway, when about 100 million others joined you on the asphalt jungle. In just about six weeks, we’ll get to do it again for Independence Day, an apt name for any day on the roadways when the morons amongst us demonstrate just how independent they can be. My email inbox recently gave me the “Bill of Non-Rights” with stuff like (“You do not have the right to a free house…,” etc.), and so, here’s my stab at a...
  • Talented Squirrel Defeats Suspended Bird Feeder With One Heroic Zip Line Maneuver [Video]

    Squirrels can be awfully aerobatic when they want to, and, in the case of one squirrel, those aerobatics led to some delicious bird food. Realizing that he couldn’t walk across a suspended bird feeder, this little crafty guy used the suspension line and his adorable paws to create a squirrel-based zipline. Either this squirrel really wanted to have some fun, or the bird feed in the suspended feeder is absolutely amazing. This video was uploaded to YouTube on December 28 and has racked up 3,882 views at the time of this post.
  • A squirrel mascot named Zipper is out to pitch Necco candy lines to young consumers

    Boston Globe ^ | Chris Reidy
    Local geezers could go on at great length about Necco Wafers, a candy invented hereabouts in the mid 1800s. Now the candy’s maker, the New England Confectionary Co. of Revere, wants its sweets to be equally esteemed by young consumers. So, following an ad agency review, the company selected the Noonan Creative Group of Framingham to design a website that might beguile a younger demographic of candy lovers and to alert them that Necco doesn’t just make its eponymous Wafers, but that its candy line-up also includes such classics as the vintage peanut-butter chew known as the Mary Jane, not...
