Seeing Red

Tampon tax discussion must include every person who menstruates.
As legislative interventions gain traction, advocates are also readying legal arguments to challenge unfair policies.

Fake News? How Prejudice Can Skew Coverage

American newspapers and mass media may be referred to as the "free press," but they are anything but free.

An Open Letter from God

I'm reviewing my last 2,000 years or so, and I know I've been terribly remiss about keeping in touch with all of you. To make this a bit more heart-to-heart and down-to-earth, I'm dispensing with my usual "verily, verily's" and "It came to pass ..."

POTUS: Hater-in-Chief

And who does he hate? Certainly he's a perfect example of toxic-narcissistic self-loathing—and, down-deep, he very much hates himself.

Trump in a Miniskirt: Cheering for the Bad Guys

Luckily for him, praises are amazingly easy to extract from the worst of the world's bullies, who, though castigated by all legitimate world leaders, are impervious to the cries of "foul."

Taking Offense at Karen Pence

Hypocrisy is alive and well in Washington, D.C., (I can already visualize your expression and hear your sarcastic response, "So what's new!")

It Turns Out the Witch is Real

Gone are the cheery songbirds that welcomed each day.

We all knew, even before the botched, Russian-manipulated election of 2016, that Donald Trump was no saint.

Student Loans

There is some history on this subject, but there is also some personal history. Loans are something I know too well.

Low Calcium and Green Jell-O = Weak Utah Spines

While the flag bearers of the Republican Party do their now-you-see-me, now-you-don't disappearing acts, there's an alarming absence of Utah GOP members willing to stand up and be heard.

Trumpty Dumpty's Precarious Wall

Trumpty Dumpty is sitting on the wall—no, not his wall—and the chances are that even all the king's horses and men won't be able to salvage the wreckage.

Ingot We Trust: Trading Foundation Beliefs for the Luster of Gold

(The guns were an absolute necessity—back then; no one needed a concealed carry permit, and no one questioned the premise that a man would be fully justified in killing a claim jumper or thief. In the gold fields, the law was in short supply.)

The Kinder Approach to Food: Birth of a Super-Vegan

Not just any food, but the kind that just sits there growing, gawking at the sky and never taking a vacation—even venturing around the block.

Utahns Perpetuating the Myth: The Christian Right

Utahns, at least politically, are still in the La-La Land of sucklings.
Like a litter of puppies whose young eyes have not yet learned to focus, Utahns, at least politically, are still in the La-La Land of sucklings.
