A public university president in Oregon gives new meaning to the idea of a pensioner.

Joseph Robertson, an eye surgeon who retired as head of the Oregon Health & Science University last fall, receives the state’s largest government pension.

It is $76,111.

New “Lost In Space” stirs memories of campy cult classic

Sounds like I’ll be watching the new “Civilisations” show mostly on mute because the Left has to ruin everything.

“If we were on Earth-2 and President Mitch Daniels were in office and Republicans were enjoying the luxury of a boring and mature presidency that was tackling head-on the Sweet Fiscal Crisis of Death coming our way, the pull of Ryan’s family might not have been nearly so acute…As a general rule, whether you’re on the right or the left, if you personally hate Paul Ryan, that’s an indicator to me that you’re an unreasonable person. Sure, you can disagree with him. You can be disappointed in him. But if you buy the claptrap from the Krugmanite Left or the Bannonite Right about Ryan, if you think he’s evil or a fraud, I’m going to assume you’re part of the problem in our politics.”

Six million Jews were killed in World War II by Nazi Germany and its accomplices.

This is stupid.

I would love to watch a good movie about this woman.

Almost everyone over 30 somehow survived this “controversial” method of parenting. Back then, it was called “parenting.”

This story is insane.

Good on the White Sox. Can’t imagine what this guy has been through.
