Court puts DREAMers back in the driver's seat

azcentral.com — It's difficult to understand the animosity Gov. Jan Brewer seems to hold for DREAMers, those young people brought illegally into the country as small children and raised here as Americans. Since they've been granted a deferred deportation action they have been eligible to receive driver's licenses, as do others with similar immigration status.

Would I care more about Ferguson if my son was black?

azcentral.com — For the second Monday in a row I received a call from a reader identifying herself as "the concerned mother of an African-American son."

Obama didn't trigger the apocalypse (or grant amnesty)

azcentral.com — No, it's not the end of the world. It's not even - cue the dun dun duuuun music - amnesty. That's what President Obama's critics call it. But, in elementary school grammar class the nuns would say that's using "hyperbole," which is when we try to make a point by way of wild exaggeration.

Obama vs.'The Biggest Loser' ... or are they the same?

Dr. Huxtable and Mr. Hyde

azcentral.com — The justice system can't touch Bill Cosby. But another comedian just might bring him down. Last month the comic Hannibal Buress ignited a firestorm on the Internet when video clips of him calling Cosby a rapist went viral.

$hanesha $chooled u$ $uckers

azcentral.com — Don't condemn Shanesha Taylor. Thank her. Thank her profusely. (Just don't thank her with money.)
