Happy LGBTQ surprise month! Google’s latest Easter egg has been found—and it turns a dull spreadsheet into a colorful celebration of LGBTQ Pride. In software terms, an Easter egg is “a message, trick, or unusual behavior hidden inside a computer program by its creator,” as Nick Montfort, a professor of digital media at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology explains in his 2009 book “Racing the Beam: The Atari Video Computer System.”(Snip) By typing the word “PRIDE,” in capital letters, across columns in Google Sheets, users are immediately gifted with a rainbow-colored spreadsheet. Each column represents a color of the LGBTQ Pride flag,


A little spit in your eye while Google harvests your data. Is anything more American than this?

These days we can't turn on the idiot box without guys kissing, rainbow hat coverings, colored umbrella or just a rainbow stripes in the background. When is Christian month?

Something Freudian about a group that yells "pride, pride, pride" ...."Pride Month", "Pride Days". etc etc Seems that they may not really have much "pride" in themselves and scream "pride" as some sort of denial of who they are.

On the bright side: I had no idea what "Google Sheets" is until I read the excerpt. For a moment, I thought that Google had started manufacturing bedding or something.

So I understand we are in the middle of "Gay Price Month" at present. I propose that for the remaining eleven months of the year we return to normality, where all the homosexuals and other abnormal types can express remorse and shame at their debauched and degenerate lifestyle. Who's with me, kids?

I was always tolerant of homosexuals. But I refuse to celebrate a clear mental disorder. With this constant drumbeat of homosexual "pride" I am finding hate in my heart towards these groups. Sick and tired of this garbage.

House and Senate Republicans introduced bills on Monday that would bar federal funds from being used to teach The New York Times’ “1619 Project.” The measures are unlikely to pass the Democratic-run Congress, but the bills reflect mounting opposition to effort inform school curriculums with the newspaper series, which reframed U.S. history with a focus on slavery and racism as the defining characteristic of the American experience. “Activists in schools want to teach our kids to hate America and hate each other using discredited, Critical Race Theory curricula like the 1619 Project. Federal funds should not pay for activists to masquerade as teachers and indoctrinate our youth,”

President Biden on Monday wouldn’t repeat his assertion that Russian President Vladimir Putin is a “killer,” calling him a “worthy adversary” as he prepares for a showdown with Mr. Putin in Geneva on Wednesday. Speaking at a press conference at NATO headquarters in Belgium, the president said he will seek areas of cooperation with Mr. Putin, after Moscow’s interference in U.S. elections, cyberattacks originating in Russia and human-rights violations.(Snip) Asked if he still believes Mr. Putin is a “killer,” as he stated in March, Mr. Biden paused for an awkwardly long time before giving a forced laugh.

Vice President Kamala Harris was met by protesters offering her directions to the southern border on Monday as she embarked on the first day of her nationwide COVID-19 vaccination tour in South Carolina. In Greenville, Ms. Harris’ motorcade drove past demonstrators holding signs that said “Border is That Way” and “Trump won.” En route to her second stop, the vice president passed protesters shouting “go to Texas” and holding signs that said, “Trump is still our Prez.” Ms. Harris, who is leading the administration’s effort to stop the surge of illegal migrants, said after a trip to Central America last week that she will visit

The Department of Homeland Security will speed up work permits for tens of thousands of illegal immigrants who claim they are victims of crime, the department announced Monday, saying the current wait, which can last up to five years, is too long to make people remain in economic limbo. More than 160,000 people were waiting for the victim visa, officially known as the U visa, as of December. Under the new rules, U visa applicants can be awarded work permits and deferred action, which is an official amnesty for deportation, once they have filed their petition, had their fingerprints taken and are deemed to have made

Joe Biden repeatedly confused Syria with Libya while discussing ways of working with Russia during a press conference at the G7 on Sunday. The 78-year-old gaffe machine spoke of working with Vladimir Putin to provide economic assistance to the people of Libya, prompting some confused glances from the press pack at the G7 summit in Cornwall, England. 'I'm hopeful that we can find an accommodation where we can save the lives of people in—for example, in—in Libya,' the president said, mentioning the north African country for the third time instead of Syria, which is in the Middle East.

Russian President Vladimir Putin continued to try to pick apart U.S. claims on a media tour in advance of his summit with President Biden–denying in an interview airing Monday that Russia engaged in cyber attacks and saying there was no proof it interfered in U.S. elections. 'Where is the evidence? Where is proof? It's becoming farcical,' Putin said in a sit-down interview with NBC News from Moscow. 'We have been accused of all kinds of things—election interference, cyberattacks and so on and so forth—and not once, not once, not one time, did they bother to produce any kind of evidence or proof, just unfounded accusations.'

A Homeland Security-backed study has found that it’s unlikely Central American countries can boost their economies enough to stop people from trying to migrate to the U.S., undercutting President Biden’s plans to rely on nation-building to curb the border surge. Incomes rise tenfold—an incomparable lure—for migrants from the key Northern Triangle countries of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador by working in the U.S., according to the Borders, Trade and Immigration Institute. “The potential economic gain following migration from the Northern Triangle to the U.S. is enormous,” the institute concluded. “In the presence of a wage gap this large, even significant percentage changes

A lawsuit opposing the Houston Methodist Hospital network’s mandate that employees must get the COVID-19 vaccine has been shot down at the federal level. A U.S. District judge on Saturday tossed the lawsuit from employees of the Texas hospital system who argue they shouldn’t be required to get vaccinated. The dismissal comes after 178 staffers who declined to get the vaccine were suspended by Houston Methodist, which had instituted a June 7 deadline for employees to receive the shots. A claim made by the lawsuit’s lead plaintiff, Jennifer Bridges, describing the vaccines as “experimental and dangerous” was refuted by the judge.

The Girl Scouts have an unusual problem this year: 15 million boxes of unsold cookies. The 109-year-old organization says the coronavirus — not thinner demand for Thin Mints — is the main culprit. As the pandemic wore into the spring selling season, many troops nixed their traditional cookie booths for safety reasons. "This is unfortunate, but given this is a girl-driven program and the majority of cookies are sold in-person, it was to be expected," said Kelly Parisi, a spokeswoman for Girl Scouts of the USA.

One person was killed and another injured Sunday night after being struck by a car in the Uptown area of Minneapolis during a protest, near the site where Winston Smith was shot by sheriff’s deputies earlier this month. A witness said the eastbound SUV was moving at a high rate of speed as it approached just before midnight, and that the driver appeared to accelerate as they got closer to demonstrators who had blocked off Lake Street near Girard Avenue. The driver struck a vehicle parked across one of the traffic lanes on Lake Street, apparently positioned to protect the crowd. That second vehicle then hit people.

Kamala Harris' problem isn't race or gender though those are the two excuses that she and her supporters have brought out to explain everything from her humiliating failure in the primaries to her humiliating failure on the world stage during her big international trip. But aside from her self-inflicted problems, and there are many of those, Kamala has no constituency. Joe Biden has black voters, but he picked Kamala as a sop to the party's minority base even though she wasn't able to woo black voters away from him during the primary. Strategically that's exactly why he picked her.

Tent-lined streets with belongings scattered everywhere. Infected wounds with bugs living inside. A man who hasn't showered in over a decade. An 80-year-old woman who can't feed herself. People who ride the metro rail lines because the trains are a safer place to sleep. California's homeless problem has been out of control for decades. Then came COVID-19. The result has been a deadly combination of medical crisis, human hopelessness and bureaucratic red tape as the state, reeling from the virus' impacts, tries to rebound with a plan for the 160,000 homeless people. That number eclipses any other state – and accounts
