Makes you almost yearn for the days when they claimed Lincoln as one of their own but at least this is honest.

Watching a documentary series about the civil war, I was really struck by the similarities between the wave of panic and butthurt that attended Lincoln’s presidency and what we have seen since Obama took office.

Illinois Republicans do not forget Lincoln, and we still proudly claim him as our own.

True enough. But I’ll tell you this much. As the Republican party becomes more and more about states rights and less about human rights, they lose their link to Lincoln. I was glad to see though that the Illinois GOP chair came out in favor of marriage equality which is something more Republicans need to do.

Vladimir Putin Says Alaska Is Too Cold to Annex
Russian President Vladimir Putin quashed the possibility that Russia would annex Alaska while on a question-and-answer call-in show Thursday, adding that the former Russian colony is cold, too. Amid rising Russian nationalism after the president's annexation of Crimea, Putin responded to an audience member's suggestion of annexing Alaska during the televised national phone-in, asking, "Faina Ivanovna, my dear, why do you want Alaska?" ...

Criminalizing Expectant Mothers - NYT
Even by the standards of the growing Republican assault on the lives and rights of women, a new bill passed by bipartisan majorities in both houses of Tennessee's Legislature recently stands out for being meanspirited and counterproductive. If signed by the state's Republican governor, Bill Haslam, the legislation would give Tennessee the dubious distinction of being the first state to specifically authorize the ...

Calgary stabbings: How knife crime in Canada can cause ‘moral panic’

New York Electoral College: State Joins National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.
Ben Mathis-Lilley, Slate: New York Electoral College: State Joins National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. Instead of pushing for a Constitutional amendment, which would have to be ratified in 38 states, advocates ask individual state legislatures to pass an agreement: that they'll pledge all their presidential electors to the winner of the national popular vote as soon as enough other states pass the law to ...

These 5 Countries Are Crushing the Whole Gender Equality Thing at Home
When looking at this data, it's important to remember that gender equality isn't just about women working more paid hours or doing less housework. It's also about men cutting back their work hours to pitch in more around the house. Countries that have lighter workweeks, in fact, tend to have a more equal distribution between men and women in the home. The OECD ...

The Insane History of Rockets at Jet Propulsion Laboratories
The Rocket Boys In the late 1930s, a group of Caltech graduate students were booted off campus after blowing up (part of!) their building during a rocket test gone awry. Unwilling to give up on the joy of semi-controlled explosions, the students and a few of their friends headed into the San Gabriel Mountains. They picked a deserted gully -- Arroyo Seco -- ...
