California Middle School Teacher here. Took a snapshot of my classroom’s thermostat yesterday in a school with no a/c. Only reached 82 today. There is no law in place about workplace conditions for teachers (or students) in California, so we just have to deal with sweat soaking through our pants and kids that can’t

The subjects referenced in the article, the political pundits (like Candace Owens, who does not have a dog in the fight), have pivoted Telfer’s passion (track and field) into a pulpit for a political referendum on the legitimacy of trans people. For people like her, it does not appear to be genuinely a concern for

I think you hit some very valid points of false outrage, and the politicizing of a person’s dream/life/passion. How do you suppose the outrage (as false as much of it is) gets resolved?

There is the slippery word. “Preference.” Preference is being used to assume de facto discrimination of others. Preferring one, isn’t by default a discrimination of others.

I’m going to play the devil’s advocate here. Would anyone be as upset if this were a situation of billboards advertising million dollar condos NOT being placed in lower income communities?

As an educator who spent the last few years working in high schools (specifically in Marin County, the location of a couple of families indicted), and having had the opportunity to talk with guidance and academic counselors in these schools with extremely well-to-do families and high achieving kids with, too many,

Whenever I see these cars, I think of an old style inflatable pool raft. All the big tubey shapes. That and my cousin’s hot blonde friend from high school (no Kellyanne) that drove one.

I have purchased my fair share (read: an inappropriate number) of vehicles with higher mileage. It’s a mixture of not being flush with cash, not wanting a car payment, and appreciating older cars.
