Biden is pulling troops from Afghanistan - in 6 months, kinda, maybe. Elon Musk is not a god - he's actually a bit of a dipshit penis wrinkle. We can do better, and indeed we must. PLUS what Mead, NE has to do with the Flint water crisis, and t
If you're drinking water from your sink right now, spit it out. A recent report shows high levels of lead, arsenic and "forever chemicals" (yep, that's what they're called) in drinking water across the U.S. Meanwhile, the infrastructure bill mi
