Never forget that a black woman in Bridgeport was sentenced to five years in prison for saying she lived in another school district to get her kid a better education.

Don’t have a bookmark? Try using a taco. (Actual photo of an actual book found in the book drop at my library in Indiana a few years back)

Please stop saying "You can't joke about anything anymore". You can. You can joke about whatever the fuck you like. And some people won't like it and they will tell you they don't like it. And then it's up to you whether you give a fuck or not. And so on. It's a good system.

This just might be the most useful thing I’ve ever read on Twitter.

I teach my students that pushing boundaries is a risk comedians take. But calling Chinese-Americans “chinks” & gay people “faggots” is not “pushing boundaries.” That’s being a self-serving bigot. Those “boundaries” don’t need “pushing” by the privileged majority.

About to fly from Chicago to Hong Kong. Came across this extremely helpful instruction on the in-flight entertainment system: “For Korean, select Dutch.”

Just heard on a flight about to depart Washington,DC: “Our entire United team is here to ensure you have a great flight!” ... Really? The ENTIRE United team? I feel bad for everyone on all the other United flights.

Guy at United Airlines lounge in Hong Kong watching & on : "You know, I'm getting sick of all their BS." Me: "Then you chose an odd place to sit, considering there are around 400 chairs hrre & you picked the closest one to the only TV showing CNN."

We all know grandpa has lost it and some of us are more comfortable talking about it. But, to be clear, he’s lost it. My proof: we all know who I’m taking about. Let’s take away the keys and make sure he doesn’t drive this car into a lake.

I had a chat tonight in Vietnamese with a taxi driver about American politics. I felt proud of my Vietnamese proficiency. 2 hours later: conversation with a different taxi driver who I couldn’t understand. He finally switched to English: "What’s your name?" Ego: Deflated.

When you check people in for a flight, and ask with a smile, “Would you like to be moved to an exit row, sir?” It would be nice if you’d also specify you’re moving us from an aisle to a middle seat.

- instead of saying Dayton, he said Toledo - can't stop sniffing If we can't impeach the president, can we at least drug test him?

I mean, if you really want to do something about mental illness the first thing you would do is decrease the misleading stigma that equates mental ill health with ‘risk to public’. That kind of shame doesn’t help people. It stops them getting help.

Hands up if you have been mentally ill and never once contemplated a mass shooting.

People suffer from mental illness in every other country on earth; people play video games in virtually every other country on earth. The difference is the guns.

10 yrs ago, before I lived in , American friends often asked, “Is it safe there?” No one asks me that today. But Friday, heading home from the airport in Saigon, a taxi driver said I’m lucky I live here now because, “America too dangerous! BANG! BANG! BANG!”

The president's hateful tweets make journalists less safe.
