(Link) For us, the rich white elitist men who bring you this fine site, fairness is of the upmost importance. As such, this site remains relentlessly non-partisan. We welcome input from anyone regardless of their race, creed, nationality, religion, orientation or political persuasion. Except for women. We believe their brains are too small for the type of work we do here. Board member Neville Baxter Carlton presented a white paper at our last meeting that proved as much. The diversity of our t...

(Link)/ Our goal with this site is to one day have, like, readers.

(Link) The glorious thing about the Internet is, of course, the free porn. Second to that, of course, is the freedom it provides to writers. Anyone who has written for a newspaper has experienced the joy of compressing the entire history of the Big Dig into 600 words. Online, you can write all you want until you bore every single last one of your readers. (Current readership: 1). But in print, space is sacred, and it is important to best utilize that space in a way that delivers hard-hitting ...
