House panel votes to make women register for the draft


The proposal passed the House Armed Services Committee without support from its sponsor, Iraq War veteran Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., who introduced the measure as a way to force congressional conversation about the role of women in the military.
But several Republicans broke ranks with their committee counterparts to support the idea of drafting women for military service, until now a possibility solely reserved for men.

Drunk doctor who assaulted Uber driver fired.


I think she was on suspension, but it looks like they went ahead and fired her.

She's going to have a VERY hard time finding another residency. All that work for nothing...

Whole Foods under fire after Gay Austin pastor sues over homophobic slur on cake


A gay pastor in Austin, Texas accused a local Whole Foods store of discrimination for adding a homophobic slur to his cake order, KXAN-TV reported.

Jordan Brown was scheduled to give a press conference on Monday following the release of a video detailing the incident.

He says in the short video that he went to the company’s flagship store on April 14 and ordered a cake bearing the inscription, “Love wins.” An employee complied with the request, sealing the cake with a sticker.

Brown’s lawsuit stated that he caught the slur written on the cake — which Brown intended to give to a congregation member — after driving away from the store. The video shows the cake inside the box bearing the company’s logo, and Brown also displays his receipt.

Except it was a priest.

You'd think a little "lower learning" would be a prerequisite for a center of "higher learning".
