“I’m starting to hate that moment when Olympic runners helped each other to the finish line,” declared Slate writer Justin Peters in a headline on Wednesday. The moment in question occurred during a 5,000 meter heat in Rio on Tuesday. Nikki Hamblin of New Zealand fell and took out American Abbey D’Agostino with her.

“Will the recent Obergefell decision protecting same-sex marriage apply to open the door to robot-human marriage?”

This absurd question is posed by Slate contributor and Arizona State University Law professor Gary Marchant in his Aug. 10 article "A.I. Thee Wed."

In his piece for Slate, Marchant claimed that the Obergefell v. Hodges decision confirmed the “fundamental right” of a person to freely choose “the nature of the relationships and lifestyle they choose to pursue.” Now, he said, that should apply to robots, too.

But of course, the media had a field day painting this orthodox statement as a sweeping approval of the gay lifestyle.

While everybody on the face of the planet seems most interested in whether or not Nobel Laureate Al Gore is going to run for president in 2008, an article was published by Slate Monday asking questions of the Global Warmingist-in-Chief far more crucial than his future political aspirations. Though Steven Landsburg is likely not a household name, his article deliciously entitled "Save the Earth in Six Hard Questions: What Al Gore doesn't understand about climate change," should be must-reading for all Americans - including elected officials - that are seriously pondering radical changes to energy and economic policies in order to address the most recent environmental bogeyman. Unlike most articles on this subject, Landsburg, a PhD-wielding economics professor at the University of Rochester, took a purely pragmatic and arithmetic approach (emphasis added throughout):
