Seriously, what is this emphasis on which children are prettiest? It’s just so disturbing and gross. I’m reminded of this sculpture in Denver, completed in the 1880s, where the artist visited 5,000 girls across the city in search of the most beautiful and angelic face, finally choosing six-year-old Ella Catharine Matty.

Trump won’t be impeached and removed from office, no matter what he does or has already done, unless at least a dozen or so Republicans in the Senate beat a path to that dusty closet on Capitol Hill and reclaim their spines. Do you see that happening? I don’t. Every time I thought something was a bridge too far, it turned out it wasn’t. Click through to read more! Read more

An ousted President Trump wouldn’t necessarily mean a President Pence, though, because Pence is implicated in the very scandal threatening to take Trump down. If you follow the line of succession back, past legal challenges and others implicated in the same scandal, you end up not with a President Pence but a President Steve Mnuchin.  Click through to read more! Read more

It is 1834, and Katy has just turned 19 years old. Her schooling is over, and she lives at home with her widowed mother. She enjoys drawing and music, and helps her mother with some sewing. But really, she’s bored. Is there no social scene where she lies? Were Amelia, Charley, and Jane, all of whom appear now to be lost to her, really the only people her age in the area?  Click through to read more! Read more

This policy is a means of asserting—and maintaining—complete control over the student body. To me, this smacks of a police state. But I suppose that’s okay with Louisiana College, so long as it’s a Christian one. Click through to read more! Read more
