Sochi Rights

Written by Rob Rogers on .

As the Sochi Winter Olympics get under way, Vladimir Putin is taking criticism for Russia's anti-gay law. Putin has downplayed the intolerant policy, saying it is just a way to protect the children. Really? Who will protect the children from your bigoted views, Vladimir?

Written by Rob Rogers on .

A Senate hearing on medical marijuana was held in Harrisburg, raising hopes that Pennsylvania might join other states in legalizing the drug for medical treatment purposes. It is a long shot, but at least it is being discussed.

The GOP Party (or an offshoot) gave four, that's right, four, different responses to Obama's State of the Union last week. Maybe they will begin giving responses to every major cultural and political event.

Thug

Written by Rob Rogers on .

Seattle Seahawk Richard Sherman was animated and excited during his interview minutes after making the play of his career two weeks ago. But that is no reason for people to make racial slurs, as some did on social media. Sherman has handled himself with intelligence and grace in the midst of the attention. I wish I could say the same for his critics. Meanwhile, over on the Hill, they have their own brand of racism.
