May 23 Alice Dreger commented on ICYMI: Anderson Cooper Shreds Idiot Bigot Amy Kushnir.
When my kid was little and he watched TV, I had to explain homophobia a lot more often than I had to explain being gay (especially if we were watching football). TV hasn't yet changed.
Apr 15 Alice Dreger commented on Swedish Plane Passengers Stop Man's Deportation by Refusing to Buckle Seatbelts.
Thanks for this - this is the kind of story that makes me feel okay to be a human.
Apr 3 Alice Dreger commented on Honey Maid Doubles Down on Support for Same-Sex Parents.
Beautiful. Thank you for sharing that.
Mar 22 Alice Dreger commented on The Saturday Morning News.
Same-gender couples finally being allowed to marry starting today in Michigan doesn't make the news? It feels monumental here!!!!
Feb 20 Alice Dreger commented on College Might Lose Some State Funding for Recommending That Students Read Fun Home.
"Fun Home" is a terrific book for teaching undergraduates. (Or graduate students, for that matter.)
Jan 24 Alice Dreger commented on The Version of the NYT Magazine HRC Cover with the Land-Mass Hair: Better or Worse?.
Is this going to turn out to be a native ad or something? Because why would an editor okay that?
Jan 15 Alice Dreger commented on SL Letter of the Day: Left Behind.
Gluten intolerance.
Jan 6 Alice Dreger commented on "Siberian Sea Smoke".
Pedestrian on pier - later to be "body found." You'd think people would save the divers the trouble.
Dec 17, 2013 Alice Dreger commented on Anthony Lane on Peter O'Toole (RIP).
Whenever I'm having a bad week, I pray that when the New Yorker comes, the film review will be by Anthony Lane. He is my favorite writer at The New Yorker, and there are more than a few amazing ones there, obviously.
Dec 16, 2013 Alice Dreger commented on The Final Print Edition of The Onion....
The videos are incredible send-ups of TV news. I suppose that if there are virtually no decent print newspapers left, what's the point of sending-up those?

As for the NYT, they keep running historical perspectives that have a creepy deathbed tone. "Call my heirs, son, so I can tell them how it used to be."
