Now that Obama has been elected and re-elected, we’re in a post-racial society, right? And the death of an [another] unarmed black teenager at the hand of a white cop isn’t about race at all. Anti-American liberals, you see, are playing the race card again. Jon Stewart explains.

That symbol we used to call the “number sign” or “pound sign” that they now call as “hash sign” — # — is ruining social media. All the cool kids have switched over to what we used to call the “percent sign” — % — to make social media a better place for you and […]

Drones are chasing our Emeritus Editor Elise Roedenbeck (she’s @buttronica on the Tuiter) for all the wrong reasons. Here’s how she hides, and how you can hide too. [Editor's note: I can't tell you the right reason because then Ms. Buttronica would have to kill me and I think that could be quite painful.]
