What They Said

Comments from



About "Marriage Equality Rally":

"There is no good reason to deny that we must keep evolving until an adult, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, monogamy or polyamory, race, or religion is free to marry any and all consenting adults. The limited same-gender freedom to marry is a great and historic step, but is NOT full marriage equality, because equality 'just for some' is not equality." — Keith Pullman

About "Children's Museum to Display Real Children":

"Finally, my family will get its money's worth going to the Children's Museum. (But I'm not paying to buy special feed. Those kids can have whatever crackers my kids can eat.)" — Samson

About "Letter from the Editor" and those international flights to New Mexico:

"It's not the flight that's a pain; it's that strip search in customs once you get to Albuquerque." — staythirstymyfriends

About "The Onion Was Right About Miley Cyrus" and that whole VMA Awards thing:

"The attempt to put the 'child' career behind has been difficult for many artists. We get it, sweetie. You're all grown up. The sad part is MTV rated this event for 14 and up knowing those as young as 9 would seek their 'Hannah Montana.'"


"When you have a net worth of 120 million at the age of 20, you can twerk with or without a trunk. It is amazing that so many people feel sorry for her, and they don't have a crying dime to their name. If this is the way she wants to be, then it is on her to want to change when she gets ready. She can afford it!"


Comment of the Week:

About "The Rant" and the "unseemly pillaging of the Voting Rights Act":

"I am personally surprised that the Dear President doesn't support these photo ID laws, after all, isn't it easier to find, spy on, and harass those who don't support you if they have to obtain a government ID?"
