Some interesting events happened recently in the arena of sex politics in America. It's too early to tell yet whether we'll see any positive changes, but what I've observed so far has been tentatively encouraging.
The Academy Awards, Hollywood's most pretentious night, is just around the corner, and it seems as if the battle for best picture will be one in which America's most honest president and Ben Affleck duel head-to-head. Both Lincoln and Ben Affleck's Argo are respectable pieces of film that portray politics with vigor and unrelenting tension. Both films deserve to be recognized and awarded, but that doesn't mean that tinsel town's favorite circus, known by most as award season, isn't broken.
In hindsight of the horrific events that transpired in Aurora, Colo. and other acts of gun violence, there should be greater federal restriction on the types of firearms citizens are allowed to purchase.
