YOU SAY YOU WANT A REVOLUTION: A PRISON LETTER TO YOKO ONO


Dear Yoko Ono,

DEAR TRUMP DIARY,

7:34 a.m., Tuesday. I just signed another online petition. One of the 250 social-change outfits I connect with shot me an urgent text 45 seconds ago, so away I clicked.... How often must I do this, before I die of despair?

Be Vewy, Vewy Quiet, Good Old Boys Are Hunting


In a recent New York Times column titled "White Male Victimization Anxiety," Charles Blow described how President Trump publicly apologized to Justice Brett Kavanaugh for "the terrible pain and suffering you have been forced to endure" at the hands of Christine Blasey Ford, who claimed that Kavanaugh had tried to rape her.
