Everybody Gets an Aretha Franklin Shirt!

Oh Aretha, we love you so much! Whether you’re 6 or 66, Aretha Franklin is the music of your youth. If you believe in god, then her voice must’ve been a gift from heaven.

Democracy Dies Without a Thriving Media to Keep it Honest

This originally appeared in my Broke-Ass City column in the San Francisco Examiner. Sometimes, I sit down to write my column knowing exactly what I’m going say. (The one about Salesforce Tower looking like a butt plug immediately comes to mind.) I was giddy when I began writing that column.

When most people in the United States think of burlesque, they envision a bunch of bawdy strippers dancing before a lecherous crowd, wearing nothing but fishnets, feathers, glitter, rhinestones, and tasseled pasties.
