Even as an overwhelming number of America's LGBT adults say society has become more accepting, members of the LGBT community are less happy with their lives than the general public, according to a new Pew survey released today. Additionally, LGBT adults were split on the best way for the LGBT community to pursue equality. Half of the survey respondents said LGBT people could best achieve equality by becoming a part of mainstream culture and institutions. An equal percentage said LGBT people should be able to achieve equality while maintaining a distinct culture and way of life.

Jennifer Regester knew she was coming no matter what. Shortly after the Orioles clinched a spot in the American League Division Series, she bought plane tickets to Baltimore for her and her 18-year-old daughter, Taylor Twofeathers - from their home in Bozeman, Mont. Regester made the $1,700 splurge without any guarantee she'd be able to purchase playoff seats from her favorite baseball club. "Is that totally crazy?" the Baltimore County native asked. Maybe, but Regester was hardly alone in the rush to snap up tickets for the impending ALDS, which begins Thursday at Camden Yards.

It would almost be worth it for the firm behind the service to have used the name classclown.com for school related surveys.(Google says the domain is available,...

Generally speaking, the general public should be a lot more interested in the formulation of a budget for the school system than attendance at public hearings on the subject would seem to indicate. From a philosophical standpoint, public education is a foundation of representative democracy. The populace cannot be expected to make informed decisions about public policy unless everyone has a baseline of general knowledge that includes the ability to read, write, do basic math, understand scientific principles and have a sense of history.

Editorial from The Aegis | July 2, 2013
Both public libraries and free, universal public education are regarded as cornerstones of American democracy. A line of reasoning embraced by the nation's founders holds that for the regency of the general public to endure, the elected government would have to make sound and reasonable public policy decisions. That government would also have to change its public policy decisions when it made mistakes. Importantly, the people making the decisions would have to know when to change and when to stay the course on a particular public policy direction.

BIG BAD VOODOO DADDY The mid-'90s explosion of swing music took the music industry (and most of the general public) completely by surprise.

The band continues to tour regularly, sharing their take on '40s and '50s era swing. Both shows are at 8 p.m. Tickets are $46.50.
