“I’ll have an absinthe, hold the sweet fennel as I’m right on the brink of Ketosis,” said 24-year old Earnest Hemingway to Jules Valar, his server-person-human who was currently transitioning gender-wise and also from back of house to front of house.
Jules/Julie scribbled the order onto zie/hir/Two Spirit hemp Beaver Brand memo pad, making a mental note to purchase a less incendiary notebook when the next EBT card arrived.
Valar (sorry, less familiar but easier on this writer) enjoyed the position at the recently rechristened “Cafe Au Lait” on Rue St. Rue the Day. Until a month ago known as “Café Olé,” it was then forced to rebrand after charges of cultural appropriation. [Read More]
Ex-Democratic National Committee head Debbie Wasserman Schultz said she intervened in a Pakistani land deal involving her then–IT aide Imran Awan, according to two House employees. The dispute came after Awan’s father was charged with fraud in relation to the deal, and the mysterious exertion of political influence resulted in Pakistani authorities instead targeting the elderly alleged victims, according to a local report.

Did you recently request an Uber? Order something on Amazon? Purchase a coffee using a credit card?
If the answer to any of those questions is “yes,” then you just benefited from payment processors.

Stories of local authorities shutting down or fining childrens’ lemonade stands for improper permitting and operating without business licenses have grabbed headlines across the nation in recent years. Such was the case over Memorial Day weekend when Denver authorities forced a group of kids to close shop after vendors at a nearby arts festival reportedly called the police to complain.

MSNBC star Joy Reid physically threatened a senior colleague, accused a Republican politician of being gay on air and often referred to her hateful blog during a short-lived stint as a radio show co-host more than a decade ago, former superiors at the station told Fox News.
One described the host of MSNBC’s “AM Joy” as having been an “evil woman” in those days.
Reid has recently come under fire for old blog posts in which she made homophobic and anti-Semitic remarks, encouraged people to check out a 9/11 conspiracy-theory documentary that claims the U.S. government carried out the attacks, and shared an image of U.S. Sen. John McCain’s head PhotoShopped onto the body of the 2007 Virginia Tech gunman. [Read More]
Rich Madaleno, a Democratic candidate for governor in Maryland, just declared war on what he believes is President Donald Trump and the GOP’s brand of conservatism by kissing his husband in a political ad.
