  6. Scalia truly has no class, no gravitas and as for having a judicial temperament, well, that seems to have escaped him as a necessary or desirable characteristic.
    And the Big Man slaps down a nervous student; it confirms what we have always said about him; he is a bully.

    What a religious freak he turned himself into.
    His judgments will be swept away;
    ( with Lord Denning's pronouncements on 'the appalling vista' that the accused could be innocent.)

  7. I didn't even recognize Evans, which surprises me because I tend to stare a few extra seconds at every photo I see him in.

  8. James David Manning may be a sleazy, disgusting bigot, but posting a photo of him with the word "f*g" emblazoned crosses the line. It's offensive, no matter what the intention was.

  9. "It’s like a business, you build it to sell it."

    That right there is one of the attitudes that's helping to destroy the US economy.

  10. You totally missed the Dominican Republic story. It's not that the guy & his husband met the President and his wife. It's that the Vatican ambassador tried to prevent it and the rest of the diplomatic community put the Vatican guy in his place!

  11. Regarding the Jem stuff, the problems were (at least) threefold:

    1. Not getting well-publicized approval of the original creator. Even if it wasn't common-sense, it's also just a matter of respect.
    2. Expecting Twitter and Tumblr users not to behave in a sexist way against the men leading the project.
    3. Failing to recognize that such a response, already likely to occur, was reinforced by the fact that their real life is imitating the art, with them cast as stupid or villains, like men were depicted on the show, and that this would not be good for them.

    As we know, of course men can write female characters (and vice versa). And the Jerrica/Jem character should be ideal material for a trans or gay person, particularly from that era. I hope they are able to pick up from this, and move forward with a diverse team.

  12. As for "female-posed" Batman, bring it on. I much prefer that to the Nolan garbage.

  13. About those enraged wingnuts... they got their way.
