By Emily Weinstein , The New York Times One thing I miss from the pre-COVID era is eating at friends’ homes, which I do sparingly at this point, and only with the precautions that you’d imagine.

Last weekend, a friend made baked eggs in cream for lunch, which I wouldn’t have thought to do, along with a green salad that had a lightly sweet shallot vinaigrette. It was both simple and wonderful, and it made me want to shake up my repertoire. Other friends recently made us quiche, which I never, ever make, but which I completely devoured. As my editor Krysten Chambrot once said, “Quiche low-key rules.” It’s not exactly the same thing, but tell me the recipes you’re cooking at [email protected] Here’s what … [Read more...] about Red curry lentils, quick-braised chicken and more recipes

On Twitter last week, I received not one but two Nazi comparisons from folks I’ll presume read my column to the end. These readers were incensed that I dared remain within the GOP. Why such umbrage? It’s unclear. Logical argument wasn’t their thing. That’s OK. I needed a good hook for this column and real-life examples of rhetorical fallacies for the college classes I teach. It would seem I’m not the only villain to haunt The Denver Post opinion page. Fellow columnist Ian Silverii was recently exposed on Twitter as a seditionist fomenting civil war. Oh, the outrage! He joked about a national divorce of blue and red states on a podcast. Alas, I, too, am guilty of seditionist talk, but in my libertarian Republic of South Dakota musings, red states get all of the national parks and blue states get Miley Cyrus and the Impossible Burger. Thankfully the Twitterverse is not a reflection of the real universe; ridiculous partisans with their Nazi comparisons or #letsgobrandon tweets are … [Read more...] about Kafer: Conservative Nazis and woke seditionists every last (n)one of us

Youngkin signs 11 executive orders on first day in office Rebelle Communications CEO Laura Fink, a Democratic strategist, and GOPAC Chairman David Avella, a GOP strategist, weigh in on the initial actions of the newly sworn-in Republican governor and reflect on President Biden's first year in office.
