About the Transgendered Wrestler Competing Against Girls


A Texas girl enhanced with the hormones that build muscle mass, strength, and quickness won her state’s wrestling title, and people cheered. Some booed.

If only Leopold and Loeb, Al Capone, and John Wayne Gacy cloaked their crimes in a cause, then they, too, might now enjoy Second City street-sign salutes. “He was a suspect of FALN bombings starting […]

Milo’s Republicans: Hang ’em High!


You’d think otherwise, but apparently Milo has few friends in Helena, the capital city of Montana, where Democrats abound and the Helena City Commission is aggressively pro-LGBT.
