50k? SPD puts it at 130k
Jan 18 schmacky commented on Betsy DeVos: We Need Guns In Schools to Protect Children From Grizzly Bears.
Yeah, what @7 said, although Mudede's take is less about the grizzly comment and more about the privilege and insularity that gave rise to it, which are the traits that explain her backwards positions on policy issues as well.

@8: If my suspicion on the reasoning is correct, maybe "myn" is more appropriate? I don't know, I can't keep up with the kids these days.

Maybe I shouldn't say this, afflicted as I am with terminal White Maleness, but this "womxn" term I keep seeing offends my every editorial impulse. I literally flinch a little when I see it. Whatever happened to the also objectionable, but at least somewhat linguistically defensible "womyn"? I assume it has to do with some vague chromosomal associations with the letter "y," which really doesn't deserve to be so pigeonholed?

At any rate please tell me it only pertains to this march, and will be mothballed in future uses of the English language.

I just about spit up my lunch when I read Pink Door among the closures. Glad it's just temporary. Don't scare me like that!

@34: The fascist farmer sign is definitely still there

Just want to say: Horrible thing this woman did, but I respect the guts (and her boyfriend's powers of persuasion) it took to go back to the scene.

@6, you're a ridiculous boor. Doing this on every thread isn't helping anyone or anything. Your little troll jihad is boring, pointless, and beyond tiresome. You give Bernie Bros a bad name, and that is definitely saying something.

I don't know from Debbie Reynolds's eventual obituary writer, but I do know this post from Charles captures something essential and insightful.
