YES, THE NEW YORK TIMES COMMITTED JOURNALISM MALPRACTICE And Mollie Hemingway started the firestorm of criticism when she pointed out that the New York Times left THE MOST IMPORTANT PART out of their story on so-called "new' accusations against Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

THIS HEADLINE SHOULD SAY "WHEN POLITICS RUINS EVERYTHING" Because it does and this column makes a great point about how EVERYTHING in our lives is now viewed through a political lens. The only way to stop it is to dramatically shrink the size of government and since that won't happen, we're screwed.
AND NOW POLITICS RUINS HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL As a former cheerleader, I can tell you coming up with a snappy "Beat Whoever" slogan week after week is not easy. So some Arkansas high school cheerleaders used a play on words involving our President and a Democratic politician had to make it ridiculous.
DO GUNS HELP PEOPLE DEFEND THEMSELVES? There isn't an easy answer but this column is very well balanced using what data we do have. There is no short answer, you just need to read this.
NEW WAYS TO MONITOR YOUR KIDS ONLINE Apple and Google and Amazon have new ways to control what your kids see and don't see online. This article does ask if there is such a thing as too much monitoring. I'm on the fence about this. On the one hand, I want my daughter to have the chance to feel like I trust her online. On the other hand, PORN. So I'll stick with the heavy monitoring of her online activities.
