Let me say publicly that DonBoy’s answer exudes a combination of intuitive genius and confidence that make me think DonBoy is going to do big things in his life. -- Steven D. Levitt (Freakonomics blog)

Michelle Cottle, reminding us that The New Republic invented contrarianism, reports on an effort to ban protests at funerals; the main target of the ban is Fred Phelps and his group, "God Hates Fags":
No matter whether the deceased in question were gay, or that many may well have shared Phelps's moral objection to homosexuality; as the Reverend's daughter Shirley Phelps-Roper (an attorney for Westboro no less) so elegantly articulated to The Washington Post, "Our goal is to call America an abomination, to help the nation connect the dots. You turn this nation over to the fags and our soldiers come home in body bags."My entire point here is that Phelps' daughter hyphentates her name. She must be one of those feminazis.
