The reopening...

Instead, yesterday was an embarrassing demonstration of Republican legislators' failure to get their shit together, and Trump closed the day by telling House representatives to either...

Same-sex wedding etiquette differs very little from wedding etiquette in general.I’m not someone who is easily offended, especially by people who are enthusiastic and supportive.Example: “I am so excited to go to a lesbian wedding!”This phrase was something I heard many times while wedding planning. Rather than try to correct every offender, I focused instead on the positive side of...
