Re: “Savage Love: January 13, 2011

1. Can straight guys please quit calling themselves "hetero"? I'm not saying it's wrong or offensive. I just makes you sound douche-baggy.

2. I fail to see how the last writer's problem has anything to do with being either boring or "het". I'm pretty this happens from time to time to anyone who ejaculates.

3. I second Palin. Or we could name it Cork Palin and pretend it's a member of Sarah's family. It would fit.

Re: “Supreme Court Nixes Chicago's Gun Ban

I'm not going to necessarily disagree with the entire decision since I'm not a 2nd Amendment expert and have mixed feelings about the issue, but I find it pretty ridiculous that Alito would claim that "Individual self-defense is 'the central component' of the Second Amendment right."

If I remember correctly the text of the second amendment begins "A well regulated Militia, being necessary the security of a free State..." I understand that "Individual self-defence" is an important consideration when determining gun control policy, but it's completely absurd and arrogant for a Supreme Court Justice to conclude from the amendment's language that it is "the central component" of anything. It very obviously is not, considering the individual possession of a handgun is neither "well regulated" nor in any way related to a "militia."

And people like to call liberal justices "activist." Please.
