Re: “It's Not Your Mother's GOP Anymore

So because Meg Whitman and Carly Fiorina don't vote, that's an indicator for millions of GOP voters? Sounds like wishful thinking.

LindaL: Why is it "scary" when Republicans exercise their democratic rights, but not when Democrats and leftists do so? I thought dissent was patriotic.

Re: “A New Front in the War Against Pot?

In response to freezthink: pot's not addictive, period. It can become a mental/relaxation crutch, but when someone wants to quit, he or she simply does so. I smoked pretty much everyday for 20 years and then decided to quit about a year ago. Not a problem.

In terms of the alleged cancer risk discussed in the article, it's just bunk. I've known tons of functional, productive citizens who have smoked daily for 20 yrs. and up and not one of them has developed lung, or any other, cancer. Hmmm....

As for legalization, who wants the government to get a cut (via taxes)? The state of CA already does so via the Prop. 65 pot clubs and we've seen how well our legislators manage our tax dollars. Let's push to decriminalize pot, not legalize it. Keep the government out of the picture.

Re: “Hysterical Society

To dismiss this true, tragic, and inspiring (in terms of the courage shown by Sahra and Sahebjam) story as "political porn" and "outrage porn" demonstrates the reviewer's tunnel vision. Obviously, Vance can't see outside of his/her political narrative (what does Dick Cheney have to do with any of this?) to recognize universal injustice. Instead, all Vance can do is bitch about having to watch the gory details of a stoning. What about the women and gay men who have actually had to experience that slow, torturous death?

Vance also manages to trash another good film, "Not Without My Daughter" that exposes the oppression of women under the Iranian theocracy.

Move along. Nothing to see here, folks...
