On April 12, Judge Sheila Abdus-Salaam was found dead on the bank of New York's Hudson River, not far from her home in Harlem.

  The Washington Post's Express magazine today made the upcoming Women’s March on Washington their cover story, with an illustration of the march’s participants forming a powerful symbol. The only problem? The cover showed the male symbol instead of the female one.  The embarrassing mistake was caught by plenty of readers/tweeters, many of whom took to social media to spotlight the publication for their slip up. Facepalm.   Express was quick to make a statement in response, saying "We made a mistake on our cover this morning and we're very embarrassed," and adding that...

The House has had an Ethics Committee since the 19th century but its unequal bipartisanship prevented it from fully overseeing and enforcing ethics in the House.

On Sunday, we finally got a break from the dark news of 2016. Around midday, the Army Corps of Engineers denied The Energy Transfer Company the permit to drill under the Missouri River, effectively ensuring the pipeline will be rerouted away from the land belonging to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. It was a powerful and celebratory day for the Water Protectors and allies that have been standing ground in freezing North Dakota for months to protect the land, water, and sacred burial sites from The Dakota...

Photo via Twitter Tim Kaine, like a responsible VP candidate should, decided to go to with his wife Anne Holton to his polling place in Richmond, Virginia 15 minutes before it opened.

Pussycat Dolls pairs up with Christians and makes the most offensive, culturally insensitive video ever. Five white women created a music video, “I'm bringing Missions Back”—a horrific rendition of Justin Timberlake's “I'm Bringing Sexy Back,” that has caused international backlash. The young volunteers, dressed in Gomesi, the traditional and highly revered Ugandan long dress, sway their hips and dance in a way that belongs in a night club—NOT in a video about being a missionary. The video was released on October 14th by Luket Ministries, an Oklahoma missionary group...
