"The Most Expensive Homes For Sale In Every State"

From $2.6 million in North Dakota to $135 million in--where else?--California.

"17 Of The Greatest Political Impressions On 'Saturday Night Live'"

To me, political impressions have always been one of the two greatest strengths of the show.

"12 of Australia's most surreal landscapes"

Pretty "surreal," all right.

Late scratch in the mother-of-the-year contest

"Pageant mom fed her teenager daughter TAPEWORMS so she could lose weight".

"The Paper Chase — The Law School Movie Without Reese Witherspoon — Turns 40"

Even leaving aside that I saw it on my first date with my wife of 36 years, Paper Chase (the original version) is a very terrific movie

As the film turns 40 this year (it was released in October 1973), Bloomberg Law compiled a list of the 9 Things You Don’t Know About The Paper Chase.

Sounds to me like Bloomberg is issuing a trivia challenge. Did you already know these fun facts about the dullest law movie ever?

"The Cult of Beyoncé Thou shall not speak against Queen B."

I hope the author's life insurance is paid up.

Beyoncé isn’t perfect. Jay-Z isn’t perfect. Nobody is perfect. But Beyoncé will pretend to be in order to earn your respect. Isn’t that exactly what the feminists of the 1960s fought against? Why are we condoning — and applauding, and worshiping — Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s pretending? Why are we calling Beyoncé a feminist? She is a talented singer, but there are women who are talented thinkers who deserve our adoration more. AdaYonath, the first Israeli woman to receive a Nobel Prize in Chemistry, was never a personal guest of the Obamas at the White House.

Let the Beygency come get me.

"The Unauthorized Rules Of How To Dress At Goldman Sachs"

Noted comedian, "GSElevator," tells you all you need to know about how to dress at GS.

"Washington is divided because it has abandoned federalism"

As somebody--maybe George Will?--once remarked, one of the biggest harms of the Southern fight against civil rights is that it forever smeared the good name of federalism.

Federalism should be--in the absence of egregious violations of political rights--defended and fought for.

"Strongest Possible Endorsement"

Review of new book, Dear Committee Members, ". . . an epistolary novel consisting entirely of fictionalized letters of recommendation penned by professor Jason Fitger (failed novelist, failed husband, successful misanthrope)."
