Last night during a House debate, California Representative Jackie Speier, talked about her own abortion after what she considered to be an offensive presentation from New Jersey Representative Chris Smith. The debate was over legislation to end federal funding for Planned Parenthood, headed by Indiana Representative Mike Pence.  Although Democrat Rep. Jackie Speier intended to speak about a different issue, GOP Rep. Chris Smith’s graphic description of an abortion procedure turned her “stomach in knots.” “I lost a baby. Read More

As the title (and photo) insinuates, the mysterious Banksy is the Batman of street art. His work, by definition graffiti, by practice high art, expresses themes of existentialism, anti-capitalism, and anarchism.

He is just as beloved as he is reviled. Read More

 I love a good dis battles. It's a spectacle of both ribaldry and talent that is sweeter than the normal tabloid infused Pitt-Jole-Aniston love triangle, because the participants of the rivalry actually partake in the dissin' and the audience gets to cheer and boo from the internet sidelines.

I still draw lines when it comes to MC Lyte and Antoinette , and that battle happened when I was a wee three-year old. Read More
