‘Time’ 100 list offensively honors both Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh

TwitterFacebook

The annual Time 100 list debuted Wednesday with a shocking juxtaposition: The magazine recognized Christine Blasey Ford as an “icon” but also honored Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the man she said drunkenly assaulted her during high school, as a “leader.”

For those who believe Ford, seeing Kavanaugh on the same list as her is more than an insult — it’s a cruel reminder that even in the #MeToo era, men credibly accused of assault can nevertheless rise to power while being lauded…

As we approach Thanksgiving and the rest of the holiday season, many of us will spend the coming days and weeks thinking about what we’re grateful for: family and friends, food and shelter, health and happiness.

Hey, living in the jungle is rough. Sometimes you have to resort to drastic measures to get by, like swallowing your pride and morality and stealing car parts to sell when a car randomly drives through.

I felt like a real jerk, turning to my friend sitting in the passenger seat and admitting to him that I just wasn’t that smitten with the 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT S.

We’d spent the afternoon pushing the limits of the GT S on the strip of asphalt that runs between Pasadena and the small town of Cajon Junction, California called the Angeles Crest Highway.

During the day, we’d tested the resilience of our neck muscles, turned many…
