I was a subscriber to the International Herald Tribune for 30 years and continued when it was completely swallowed by the NY Times. Over the years the NY Times stopped being a newspaper and became a propaganda rag for Political Correctness… I have always been left-leaning, but this really went too far; it began to read like a PC version of the Ladies’ Home Journal. There was even one weekly column called “On Love”…YEARS of columns – 98% by women about their problems with relationships – and if ever a man was given space in this it was invariably a gay man, As if the point of view of an ordinary heterosexual male wasn’t even worth knowing about – when relationships are always between two people; hy not ever give the other side a chance? (For your info I’m gay myself – but it was the blatant imbalance that bothered me. If you were not female, black or gay you no longer had a real place in the NY Times…unless you cow-towed entirely to the Party Line!: What is this supposed to tell us about the new Editorial policies of the NY Times? Even an article (if I remember correctly) about a dog where the journalist used “them” for the doggie… as if “it” would be offended by the wrong pronoun! I think the the last straw was 6 different articles about the sexual harassment of women in the military – over 6 months… In the midst of all that, one article mentioned that more men are raped than women in the miilitary and that they have a harder time getting over it – as it is not just an attack on their person and humiliating, but it ialso hits psychologically at their sense of maleness. 30 years later men still shattered by the experience – and then three more articles all about women. So the article mentioning men was just a sop to calm the waters; no sense of equality any more… total domination of the NY Times by ultra- Feminist narratives without any real balance at all. BYE!
Cat owners are just more selfish… they don’t want to bother REALLY looking after an animal. Looking after a puppy is like looking after a baby… you gotta get down into the nitty gritty – but that helps to bond with your animal. You are cleaning up their poop for an entire life, often with your hands (and just a thin piece of plastic between you and thee poop- – but that is what life is. Cat owners change the litter box… (not often enough – some of their houses smell of it all the time! )- but it is not the same. Owning a dog is a commitment which is far greater than ownig a cat – might be one reason they such utter devotion from them.
With a cat you’d need a gify certificate to IKEA to replace all thre furniture scratched to hell!
Wait til he has to do a prostate exam!
You’d like to follow the dead? Take 100 sleeping tablets. That should do it! (just kidding. Please don’t. I couldn’t live with the guilt!)
It’s not the movie which will break the bank, it’s the hospital bills.
Does anyone else see the irony in Ms TRUSS having no support?
Don’t be ridiculous… let them come on the ice floe… they will be the first to die and the ice will keep them in good condition as food for everyone else… you really have NO instinctive survival skills!
Personally I think that such things need to be pointed out, not as one-upmanship, but because little by little such things chip away at quality of life. In today’s world, since the invention of the web and the smart phone… spelling and grammar have been sinking faster than the Titanic. But I suspect that lack of attention to detail results in the end in foggy thinking. I would be willing to bet that those people who still believe Trump won the election are less capable of creating a correct sentence – because their thinking generally has been affected by something! When you see soe of the signs they hold up – the spelling and grammar are atrocious! In this case I was a bit snarky, mainly because there seem to be so many attacks on the male of the species from all sides nowadays… too simplistically. Toilet seat wars, “manslplaining, manspreading” – where will it end? None of it logically defensible. Oh hell, I’m just a grumpy old man… but we ARE destroying the planet, the woke feminists PC crowd are just as fascist in the end as any Republican Conservative Evangelical… people actually think reality shows are “real”! And all they really want any more is entertainment, as opposed to thought-provoking quality. (To finish, I do realize that my last sentence is highly ironic, being written on a Comics thread… but some of the best comics are the ones that make us stop and think!)
