The news this week continues to be flooded with Rachel Dolezol interviews, Fox News arguments about race wars vs. wars on Christians, and horrendous - and sexist - headline puns.

Most prominent in my world was the "SHAW SKANK SEX TRIANGLE" and the other "skank" pun headlines in the NY Post, all referencing the woman who helped those (hot?) prison escapees. Because Dolezol and prison escapees have gotten so much of our collective time and attention, these are six other stories that we didn't write about for various reasons, but that you might want to comment on. And I would never want to deprive you of an opportunity to share your brilliant insights into every current happening.
