Where were the villains in SiCKO?

Filed by Alex Blaze | February 01, 2010 | 6:00 PM | comments

Crazy enough, I never saw SiCKO, Michael Moore's documentary on the American health care system from almost three years ago, until just this weekend. What a difference three years make. While fully acknowledging how easy it is to criticize the...Read More

Filed by Bil Browning | February 01, 2010 | 5:00 PM | comments

No, seriously. This trans rapper is Heaven. While I'm not sure if she's a drag queen or a transwoman, she calls herself a Super Tranny. The song is rather annoying, but the story she tells is comic, disturbing and realistic....Read More
