I was driving past a business here in the Houston Heights, when I glimpsed this painted on the side of the building. I recognized that iconic WWII poster before I realized it was not just any woman, but 14 year old Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl who was attacked for wanting an education. The words next to her are her quote, ( “I don’t mind if I have to sit on the floor at school.) All I want is education. And I’m afraid of no one.”


I want her to president of the world.

Happy birthday, Sloopy!
Steubenville native Dorothy Sloop, whose nickname is synonymous with Ohio State football and the state of Ohio itself, would have turned 100 today (she died in 1998 at the age of 85).
Read more about her and Ohio’s official rock song, Hang On Sloopy, at Dispatch.com.

Aww, yeah! (Also: go to Spoonful. Great record store!)

Speaker for Catholic graduation disinvited because he supports gay marriage

Ok, this is fucked. Thoughts: A) the principal’s name is Seamen. That’s inherently hilarious. B) It’s the same diocese that fired an experienced and beloved Bishop Watterson teacher for being a lesbian earlier this year. C) Does the Columbus diocese and the administration of Bishop Ready really think that treating a dedicated alumnus of their school like this encourages loyalty in the class O’Grady was to address? Uhhhhhhhhhh….no. You just told them that being liberal, loving, and HUMAN is not the way to get recognized by your old school. That’s whaaaaaaaaaack. The more I think about this, the faster my heart beats and the angrier I get. Imbeciles.
