The message sent by the American media, intentionally or not, is that when there's an attack on a nation like Turkey that is 99 percent Muslim and the victims are primarily Muslim, it simply isn't that important. But it should be.
It's interesting how you can find out what's really on someone's mind when they're under pressure. It happened to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, but if you blinked, you may have missed it. But this is something we cannot ignore.

The fact is that mass grief has revisited the gay community. The question is now, what do we do about it?
This week has been rough for those of us in the LGBTQ community. First, the horrific murders in Orlando hit like a ton of bricks on Sunday morning. ...

On a recent interview for "The Howard Stern Show" the openly gay CNN anchor and news host said, among other things, "I don't think I'm going to vote... I don't think reporters should vote... A lot of reporters don't vote. It's a thing."
We see words of caution everywhere: "Do not drive with sunshield in place." "Do not use thermometer orally after using rectally." "Do not iron clothes on body." As I study manufacturers' warning labels, I sometimes wonder what geniuses are buying their products. In a similar vein, partisan elections reveal impaired judgment in political consumers.
Depending on what era formed you, you can relate to a piece of Gloria Vanderbilt. If you are old enough, it's the "Poor Little Rich Girl" headlines, or maybe it's her dating Frank Sinatra, or the designer jeans with the swan logo.
Anderson Cooper just made some news by asking all three Republican candidates for president whether they'd honor their previous pledge to support the eventual Republican nominee. None of the three candidates now say they'll honor their loyalty pledge.
Michael Hayden, the retired General that Trump says "scares him" because we haven't yet defeated ISIS? Trump was scared of him, alright. Scared enough to do something Donald Trump is loath to ever do -- backtrack.
