Dear Black People

I was angry at them then, and now I’m angry at you for the same reason. I’ve noticed that many of you are concerned about […]

Without a convention, the world won’t know what a moron Trump really is

Most people know the presidential election is less than three months away. Fewer realize it will be the nation’s first election without televised national political conventions since the medium came into use in 1952. It’s probably for the best.
