They may hate you because you’re gay or straight. Maybe it’s because you’re tall, short, fat, thin, pretty, ugly, red-skinned, yellow-skinned, smart, stupid. They may hate you just because you are different than them. I could go on ad infinitum, but you get the point.

  • Schmidt column: United Nations is a farce

    I am sure that you saw from your news source the report from the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women released March 20.
