While there have been calls for James Clapper, president Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, to resign because of his admitted lies to Congress, Obama continues to defend him, only saying that Clapper should have been ‘more careful’ in his testimony to Congress, i.e., it’s ok if he lies but he should be more careful to not get caught.

Oh frabjous day! Callooh! Callay! Orly Taitz is running for office again!

The current secretary Jack Lew is a slight exception in that he had served only two years on Wall Street as COO of Citigroup.

How to come out to your parents

It must be quite nerve-wracking for an adolescent to tell her parents that she is gay. 15-year old Laurel decided that it would be easiest to tell her parents with a cake and an accompanying note. Neetzan Zimmerman tells us what the cake and the message were and what the response of the parents was.

As a lover of puns, I enjoyed Laurel’s approach.
