U.S. Postal Service selling out workers and… America

By Jim Hightower
Not Walmart-style “jobettes,” but real jobs, stable ones with a good salary and benefits, union jobs so workers have a say in what goes on, jobs that have strong protections against discrimination. A job you could make a career, do useful work, take pride in it, earn promotions, and be respected for what you do.

Weed, the CNN documentary anchored by Dr. Sanjay Gupta that aired last summer, highlighted the case of Charlotte Figi, a Colorado girl whose epileptic seizures were calmed by use of a special strain of cannabis high in cannabidiol, or CBD, a cannabinoid associated with the plant’s medical properties.

SAVAGE Love

By Dan Savage
My boyfriend of three months, “Marcus,” told me last week that he is a trans man. He’s performed oral sex on me and fingered me, but he never let me reciprocate and told me he didn’t want to have penis-in-vagina sex yet because that was a large commitment.

Astrology, Week of April 3, 2014

By Rob Brezsny
Our ancestors could see the Milky Way Galaxy spread out across the heavens on every clear night. Galileo said it was so bright, it cast a shadow of his body on the ground. But today that glorious spectacle is invisible to us city-dwellers.

Bitchin’ brews

A bunch of people got totally tubular at last week’s ’80s-themed New Kids on the Block craft beer event

By Caitlin Rockett
This week’s beer tour takes us back to a time when pants could moonlight as parachutes and Frankie asked us to relax. (Full disclosure: I was born in 1985, so I’m not actually qualified to make any statements about life in the ’80s. Without Googling, I couldn’t tell you who Frankie was or why he wanted us to relax.

Chicken a la antlers

Posting up at The Post Brewing Co.

By Josh Gross
The Sunday brunch menu has a few crossover items from the chicken-centric dinner menu, but focuses more on traditional breakfast items like roast beef hash ($11) and a delicious-sounding egg-battered slab of Texas toast dressed up in bourbon apples ($9).

Tidbites | Week of April 3, 2014

The USDA estimates that as much as 15 percent of U.S. households are food insecure, meaning they don’t fully know where their next meal may be coming from. Add to that a recent study from the World Bank that found somewhere between one-fourth and one-third of all food produced globally for human consumption is wasted — one of the biggest obstacles to conquering poverty.

The mayonnaise of record

What the popularity of one brand says about the condiment

By Ari LeVaux
Mayonnaise is the top-selling condiment in the nation, and is on a trajectory to overtake soy sauce on the world stage. The reasons behind this popularity are diverse and are the subject of much speculation — by me, anyway.

That ship cray: ‘Noah’ ain’t bible school, y’all

By Ryan Syrek
It takes all of five minutes for Noah to deliver a Dikembe Mutombo-like swat to expectations of Sunday school Bible study. Six-armed, rock-encrusted, giant fallen angels help humans to build thriving cities on a Pangaea-era Earth that looks like an alien planet. This is the Book of Genesis by way of Middle Earth. That’s not an accident.
