The NRA Is Protecting Dangerous Men. It's Time To Close The "Boyfriend Loophole."

The U.S. House of Representatives voted to renew the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) on Thursday, with a new provision that closes the "boyfriend loophole" by extending existing gun restrictions to include current or former dating partners convicted of abuse or stalking charges. The vote was 263 to 158, with 33 Republicans voting for the measure.Right now, the law only prohibits firearm purchases for people who are "married to, lived with, or have a child with the victim" and who have been co...

Is There Hope for Knowledge? On Robert Pasnau's 'After Certainty'

None Jean-Paul Sartre once declared that human beings are condemned to be free. This proclamation, a cornerstone dictum of existential thought, can be similarly extended to another pressing topic in philosophy: knowledge. Human beings can also be said to be condemned to knowledge, though not in the same way Sartre conceptualizes freedom. We are condemned to reckon with this thing we call "knowledge", presumably a description of a relationship between the human mind and the external world. Under...

Where to volunteer in NYC

In the words of Chidi Anagonye from The Good Place — though actually posed by philosopher T.M. Scanlon — what do we owe to each other? We’re all here together, so we should probably work together to make things better. Volunteering can help us do exactly that, and it does a wealth of good for everyone, including those being helped, the world around us, and ourselves. New York City has its fair share of problems, but it also has a number of places willing to address them. Finding somewhere to ...

The Vines We Planted by Joanell Serra [Book Review]

Two things I really enjoy - wine and books. So, why not read a book that has a winery setting? Kind of amazing, if you ask me!

ancient tv history: a gay cop on barney miller

Watching my comedy-before-bed daily dose of Barney Miller last night, I was surprised and pleased to see an episode about a gay cop. This remembered this post -- turns out it was 10 years ago! -- about a gay character on Dallas. Both episodes aired in 1979. Officer Zatelli, played by Dino Natali At the time I blogged about the Dallas episode, I thought this might have been pretty cutting-edge. Now that I see a similar theme on a show from the same year, I wonder if it might have been m...
