The Value of Motherhood

  Charles Murray (@charlesmurray on Twitter) co-authored with the late Richard Herrnstein one of the most controversial books of the 20th century, The Bell Curve: Intelligence and Class Structure in American Life (1994).

Rangers Lead the Way

Bob with his girlfriend Johanna, after his graduation Friday. “Acknowledging the fact that a ranger is a more elite soldier, who arrives at the cutting edge of battle by land, sea, or air, I accept the fact that as a ranger, my country expects me to move further, faster, and fight harder than any other […]

Our Son Made It Through

Happy Lesbian Father’s Day!

@SunnyBjerk is tired of the stigma, you guys: This year, as Alli and I await the birth of our first child, due this fall, we began receiving our first Mother’s Day congratulations from friends and family. . . . I’m most often asked whether I’m worried about bonding with the baby as the non-biological parent. […]

25 Years, Sexy Lady!
