    What's wrong with NYT's 'mom hair'

    The most sexist thing I read this week came not from the mind of Donald Trump but from a New York Times columnist who devoted roughly 900 words to the concept of "mom hair" in a piece so insulting I initially thought it was a parody.

    Two male middle school students, ages 11 and 12, were charged last month with sexual battery for pinning an 11-year-old girl to the ground on a Virginia school bus and repeatedly groping her chest and buttocks for a 10- to 12-minute period that was caught on video.

    Uneven justice for Baltimore's rioters

    Allen Bullock, who knew Freddie Gray, took out his frustration over his friend's death on a police car last spring. A photographer captured him standing on the hood, wielding an orange traffic cone like a baseball bat as he smashed in the car's windshield. He's looking straight into the camera,...
