Yes, Betsy DeVos has cited protection against grizzly bears as justification for guns in schools. Yes, DeVos has said that she would support Trump should he seek to ban gun-free schools. Yes, our angel mother Elizabeth Warren essentially wiped the floor with her at a Senate confirmation hearing on January 17th. No, DeVos does not understand the difference between proficiency and mastery. Nor does she understand the workings of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Or the importance of a secular, public education. Or...

This couldn’t come at a better time: on the heels of Melissa McCarthy’s impression of Press Secretary Sean Spicer, and with...
When Courtney Hunt won the 2008 Sundance Grand Jury prize for her debut feature film, Frozen River, she had no idea it was coming. “I didn’t pay close attention to reviews. My job is, ‘Is it reaching the audience or are they not getting it? If they’re not getting it, what did I do that didn’t get across?’ It’s all about my connection with the audience,” Hunt said.
