David Limbaugh David Limbaugh: Feminist Thought Police vs. Feminine Kirsten Dunst

Paul Greenberg Paul Greenberg: Where We Are Now

Flashing endlessly by, the unceasing flow of BREAKING NEWS seduces and betrays, mainly by pretending to be new. Even though, as the Preacher said, what has been will be.
