Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is the George H. W. Bush appointee who hasn't asked one single question in court since 2006. That's 10 years the man has just sat there -- mute, mum, silencio, clammed up, hushed, voiceless, unheard and zipped up.

Brad Liberti

I spent years faking interest in football, baseball, and basketball and pretending Adam Sandler movies were funny and getting shot with a paintball was enjoyable. If you could have branded me with a label on my forehead that let the world know I was in fact manly, I would have begged you to do it.

Who's in charge of prioritizing man-rules? Aren't there exceptions? Where do we draw the line between ordering chicken wings when our health requires a grilled chicken salad, and abandoning healthiness and happiness altogether to protect a notion that none of us are obligated to defend?
