Bryan Cranston vs. Florida Mom over meth-toting 'Breaking Bad' action figure

Cards on the table: I'm as big a fan of "Breaking Bad" as you'll find anywhere, and laughed out loud at the sight of series protagonist Walter White rendered as an action figure - complete with a pistol, a satchel full of ill-gotten cash, and a little bag of the blue meth that fueled his alternately comical, tragic, and horrifying journey from milquetoast chemistry teacher to crime lord.  I also generally take a dim view of censorship crusades.  It's not that I think they're always and inevitably misguided, but they are often exercises in eye-rolling prudery, whether they come from Right or Left.  Most of them come from the Left these days, as it becomes very enthusiastic about stamping out every vestige of dissent against its moral pronouncements.

'Ebola Czar' still not ready for prime time

When I found out Obama's pick for Ebola Czar - a political fixer absolutely devoid of medical experience, whose managerial resume includes stuffing half a billion dollars of taxpayer money into the black hole of Solyndra, over the objections of literally everyone who knew a damn thing about the company, including some people who worked for Solyndra - blew off two important Ebola task force meetings over the weekend, I wrote that "conservative humorists could not have penned a better satire of Obama malfunction."   Oct 21, 2014 8:21 AM PT

Movie review: 'Fury'

The new World War II tank film "Fury" is a paint-by-numbers war film, but it uses a fairly high grade of paint.  The cast is solid, and the tank battle set pieces are thrilling stuff.  Oct 19, 2014 3:06 PM PT

Obamacare Customers Afraid to Use Benefits Due to Sky-Sigh Deductibles

It must have pained the New York Times to publish its article about how many ObamaCare customers fear to make use of their taxpayer-subsidized, hyper-regulated benefits because the deductibles are so high.  It's a devastating indictment of the Affordable Care Act, cutting deep into the very small number of Americans who actually find the ACA somewhat useful.   Oct 18, 2014 6:07 AM PT

Some good medical news: a big breakthrough in fighting Lou Gehrig's Disease

A fresh delivery of hope arrives from the medical community, as the Chicago Tribune reports a major advance toward understanding how amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as ALS or Lou Gehrig's Disease, erodes the ability of victims' brains to control motor functions and respiration.  It could have implications for treating other neurological disorders, including Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, as well.  Oct 17, 2014 8:37 AM PT

Democrats scramble to quarantine Oboloa

Anyone at the CDC who needs to see what a proper quarantine looks like should watch the way Democrats are treating Barack Obama during this election season.  They won't even admit they personally voted for him in 2008 or 2012 anymore. Oct 16, 2014 4:12 AM PT

Easy money corrupts, both at universities and in government

I've heard conflicting opinions about whether or not a systemic student-loan crisis is building up, i.e. a bubble comparable to the subprime mortgage bomb we all had so much fun with back in 2008.  But there's no doubt an individual crisis is saddling students with ridiculous debt loads, as tuition rates skyrocket.   Oct 15, 2014 8:38 PM PT

Wendy Davis: portrait of a campaign in full retreat

When you're down by double digits in the polls, the last thing you need is to be playing defense following a massive unforced error.  Democrat gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis of Texas spent the day proving that she can stand in a group of disabled people without making them violently ill: Oct 13, 2014 11:10 AM PT
