Over here, in the mostly cute and completely tiny little Kingdom of the Oranges, the National Railroad (NS) just changed its public address formula from ‘ladies and gentlemen’ to ‘dear travelers’. Although the word ‘gender neutral’ is chosen as the most irritating word of 2017, the overwhelming majority of us — with the exception of morbid evangelicals, orthodox Salafist fools and populists with rotting sawdust for brains- interpret the first article of our constitution as equality for all.

I read several books about the Supreme Court. I have always admired that college of wise old geezers and geezerettes. This morning I threw the books away in disgust.

(Yes, the billboards with ‘Free Uganda’ will be swapped with ‘Free The USA’ pretty soon. Do you know why Uganda has to be freed? Because American evangelicals imported homophobia in many African countries).
