    With its recipe of celebrities, sequins and pizzazz Strictly Come Dancing has firmly captured the hearts of the British public and even made ballroom dancing fashionable again. But the BBC is now set to court controversy with some viewers of the show with the possible introduction of same-sex dancing partners. The move follows a backlash by LGBT activists against the lesbian writer and comic Susan Calman for agreeing to dance with a man. Richard Coles, Calman’s fellow contestant on the latest series of the show, which opened on Saturday night, has now revealed that “discussions” have been held with the...
  • Democrats’ real problem is that Nancy Pelosi is their true face

    Furious at their loss in yet another Trump-era special election, Democrats are calling for the head of . . . House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. It’s understandable: Republican ads in Georgia painted the Democrat, Jon Ossoff, as sure to be a Pelosi pawn — a charge that has scored for the GOP in race after race over the last decade. New York’s own Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-Nassau) is far from alone in saying, “It’s time for Nancy Pelosi to go, and the entire leadership team.” And Rice backed Pelosi in last year’s leadership fight. The challenger, Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio), is even...

    A northwest Minnesota man now holds the state record for largest eelpout. The DNR says Brent Getzler of Roosevelt caught a 19 pound, 9 ounce eelpout in the Minnesota waters of Lake of the Woods. The fish was 33 inches long with a belly full of girth at 23 and 7/8 inches. Getzler caught it while fishing for walleye with an orange jigging spoon tipped with a minnow on Dec. 19. "Brent along with his buddies thought he was battling with a monster walleye and they were recording the three-minute fight. But after realizing it was just a pout they quit filming, "DNR coordinator Mike Kurre said...

    This past week, four tasters at the Ardbeg Distillery in Islay, Scotland drank samples of whiskey that had aged for nearly three years aboard the International Space Station. They compared the samples to whiskey that had matured in a similar way here on Earth. The team said the space samples were completely unlike anything they had ever tasted before; something about the space environment had a distinct effect on the alcoholic beverage. "It was the most unusual tasting we’d ever done," Dr. Bill Lumsden, head of distilling and whiskey creation at the Glenmorangie Company, told The Verge. "I was amazed...

    For the second year in a row, a member of the LGBT community has taken home ESPN’s Arthur Ashe Courage Award, simply for being gay or transgender. If you take issue with that, you’re a trans-phobic and vile hatemonger, according to numerous media outlets. Peter Berg, director of such films as Lone Survivor, Friday Night Lights, and Battleship is feeling the wrath Thursday, after posting a critical image of Jenner’s ESPY selection to his Instagram page following Wednesday night’s show. Berg shared an image of Army veteran Gregory Gadson, a double amputee who played a role in Battleship, alongside an...

As she blends archetypal drama and epic soap opera, Marsha reveals and befriends her personal shadow. I interviewed Marsha about her book and what it was like become so deeply involved with...

    Normally, I would not even think about the concept of digging into my past studies in sociology when writing anything for the political arena, but when it comes to social issues, focusing purely on politics can definitely do everyone a disservice. When it comes to the latest round of gay rights activists trying to push their agenda on the masses, I decided it was time to drag out the sociology at least a little. Erick Erickson observations here on the gay rights movement pushing their agenda too hard when it comes to religion were spot on. However, examining just the legal and...
