The 2016 Election Just Got a Lot More Important

4 hours ago

The 2016 election just got a lot more important. The death of Justice Antonin Scalia means President Obama has an unexpected vacancy to fill in the Supreme Court.

And with the 2016 presidential election just nine months away, Republicans may be inclined to dig in their heels and find reasons to reject to anyone Obama supports. Republicans hope, of course, that their party’s candidate will win in November and they will be able to drag. »

A heroic (yes, heroic) piece in The New York Times this weekend finally yanks the issue out from behind the burka: “One of the great miseries plaguing much of the so-called Arab world, and the Muslim world more generally, is its sick relationship with women,” says journalist Kamel Daoud from Algeria. “Today sex is a great paradox in many countries of the Arab world,” he writes. “One acts as though it doesn’t exist, and yet it determines everything that’s unspoken.

11 hours ago

Ryan Reynolds‘ ultra-violent “Deadpool” blew away expectations, rivals and records with a $47.5 million first day Friday, making a bloodbath of the Valentine’s Day and Presidents Day weekend box office race.
