Shorties Untold

Published on September 14, 2014 By bmagnus

Appetizers: Let’s start with the NSA poppers, and perhaps a beer flight to wash it down? Soup or salad: The soup du jour is puree of police violence and race issues with a hint of civil forfeiture, topped with prison visit data. Perhaps the lady would prefer our Cosmo-inspired salad with cranberry vinaigrette? The main […]

So, this story has been making the rounds: a worker at a Subway sandwich shop was allegedly fired because she left sick. More specifically, she went outside to puke some more and a worker at a nearby Pizza Hut noticed her, calling an ambulance on her behalf. Cue the outrage and petitions saying she should get her […]

Paranormal Activities: The Marked Shorties

Happy March! Let’s get started…. Student Loans: Officially dragging down the economy. I think I have a way to increase consumer spending: This is crazy talk I know, but if the minimum wage were higher, people who make minimum wage could afford to buy stuff. And the Supreme Court makes it worse: Now the government […]

I was not alive 50 years ago. I wasn’t even conceived yet. Therefore I bring you a repost of an item on JFK from 2009. Oddly enough, I was reading today about Nevada in the 1960s.

Island of Lost Shorties

  The Tall Shop? Boy are they barking up the wrong tree! Anyway, Shorties. Let’s not forget about these guys: FISA, NSA, privacy, cracked crypto, due process, hearings designed to make the people feel all warm and fussy fuzzy (sometimes typos are funny) about something being done even though nobody in a position of authority is even […]

A couple years ago, I mentioned the Sea Stone wait I mean Hotel Baja California Restaurant. Guess what? It closed. The rather expensive building sat vacant for a while before displaying a new banner: “Coming Soon! Boca Park Animal Hospital.” Another expensive build ensued. I found this rather curious. Repurposing serially failed restaurant space with […]

Same Love, or SCOTUS revisited

Published on June 26, 2013 By bmagnus

Exactly 10 years ago today, the second post ever on ShortWoman.com was about the Supreme Court. On that auspicious occasion, they struck down a Texas law on “deviant” (read, GAY) sex. Now here we are a decade later, and the Supremes have struck down the Defense of Marriage Act. Now the Federal government is allowed […]

R.I.S.D: Rest In Shorties Department

I Would Watch That!: I have been given permission to share my son’s brilliant idea for a new TV show: he calls it “Law and Order and Batman.” Dumbasses: There are plenty of vegan parents out there who manage not to starve their babies to death. Leia: 20 facts, 20 pictures, one princess. Startling: The amount […]

Music Monday: Daft Punk Returns

Hey Kanye: Imma let you finish, but “Isotoner” doesn’t rhyme with “told you.” In Closing: I really, really wanted to say something about austerity last week and it didn’t happen (how could they have looked at this chart and not suspected an error??); this only works if every single person has a fully charged smart […]
