Silicon Valley’s ‘Terms of Service’ Hypocrisy


In an episode of the popular television show South Park, a fictionalized Steve Jobs forces a group of the show’s characters to permit themselves to be sewn together, in a reference to the shock horror film The Human Centipede.

Al Franken, Harvard Man


You can always tell a Harvard man but you can’t tell him to not grope a sleeping woman. “I couldn’t believe it,” model Leanne Tweeden writes of an unpleasant experience with Senator Al Franken during a USO tour of the Middle East. “He groped me, without my consent, while I was asleep.” A picture tells […]

Al Franken To The Rescue


Since last week, the political news has been dominated not by the Bob Menendez corruption trial, not by the fight to pass tax reform in the House, which happened Thursday, not by the rather stupendous accomplishments of the president and his team during his Asia trip — including bailing out three UCLA basketball players who […]

Redemption Is Possible, for Countries and Kids


Films about race and racism can be important. They’re also difficult to make. Witness Nate Parker’s Birth of a Nation, which failed last year to convince moviegoers and award voters.

Shall We Dance, Al Franken? What About That Time in Montana?


Allow me to hop on board the runaway Accuser Bandwagon: I witnessed Al Franken commit sexual harassment, and from a front row seat. Literally. Front row, right side at Student Union Ballroom of Montana State University, Bozeman, Montana. Winter of 1979 or 1980. Actually, I witnessed both Al Franken and his then partner, Tom Davis, […]
