sad pictures for children by Ono One (deleted) — Kickstarter
"I am making the loudest sound I know how to make. I know that some people will be personally offended that I am doing this, but I am doing this in large part because our culture has developed in such a way that some of the intelligent, empathetic people who follow me will believe they feel more psychological pain because of books being burnt, their money and my attitude about them than because of the destruction of the natural world, the continuation of classist, racist, abusive patterns of behavior and representation, etc."

The List - The New Yorker
“High school was bliss for me,” DuBuc said recently. “I tried not to dwell on the stuff that wasn’t good.” But, as she was about to start her freshman year at Western Michigan University, she got a call from a close childhood friend, Victoria, who asked, “Did you know you’re on the public sex-offender registry?”


The [Texas sex offender treatment] plan also included a monthly polygraph ($150) and a computerized test that measured how long his eyes lingered on deviant imagery ($325). He would also have to submit to a “penile plethysmograph,” or PPG. ... Metts would be billed around $200 per test.


The prosecutor pushed for two years in prison... Metts’s attorney urged alternatives that would be less costly for taxpayers. None of Metts’s violations, he noted, had any connection to the original charges of sexual assault of a child. A typical mistake was failing to charge his ankle bracelet’s battery. The judge took some time to think it over. The next morning, she sentenced Metts to ten years in prison.

In oral arguments for the Texas abortion case, the three female justices upend the Supreme Court’s balance of power.
"I counted two instances in which Roberts tried to get advocates to wrap up as Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor simply blew past him with more questions. There was something wonderful and symbolic about Roberts losing almost complete control over the court’s indignant women, who are just not inclined to play nice anymore."

"Our motto is the poet Marianne Moore's observation, 'It is an honor to witness so much confusion.' ... I'd like to begin by thanking rural Texans for their natural assumption that Osama bin Laden is called "Osama-Bin," as though he had two front names, like Billy Bob or Jerry Jeff."

Learning to Be Beyoncé From Her Terrible Father - Racked
"The lights dim, then go out, and a movie trailer-sounding voiceover starts to list inspirational business nouns over the sound system.

"'Drive, determination, vision.'

"A projector screen at the front of the theater illuminates to show someone’s Windows desktop and a cursor frantically clicking between programs."

Rick Perry says Wendy Davis should be pro-life because her mother didn’t abort her. We disagree. - Slate Magazine
"To me, the pro-lifer position is 'I love my mother, and I’m so grateful she had me.' The pro-choice position is 'I love my mother, and I’m so grateful she had the right to choose what was best for her and her family.' Both positions are honorable in their way. But only one of them imagines my mother as more than my mother—as a person autonomous of me, and certainly autonomous of the blastocyst that turned into me.

"Before I started writing this piece, I called my mother to ask for her permission. As we were getting off the phone, she said, 'I’m just glad you’re here.' I’m glad I’m here, too. But she was here first."

The US schools with their own police | World News | the Guardian
"Such cases are not limited to Texas. In one notorious instance in California, a school security officer broke the arm of a girl he was arresting for failing to clear up crumbs after dropping cake in the school canteen. In another incident, University of Florida campus police tasered a student for pressing Senator John Kerry with an awkward question at a debate after he had been told to shut up."
