Boy genius Ben Shapiro takes to Breitbart.com to complain that Maxim’s list of hot women includes two women that he doesn’t think are very hot. One of them — Hoda Kotb — is old, for crying out loud! The only reason women like Kotb would find herself on the list is that she’s a liberal and, of course, Maxim is well-known for only celebrating the hotness of liberals; it’s one of the pillars of the liberal conspiracy to take over America.
But Shapiro will have none of it. Making lists of hot women is something he obviously takes very seriously and he will not bow to the ghastly liberal agenda. After all, he’s the author of Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences Americans so you can be sure he’s going to speak his mind about which women are hot and which women aren’t. Once Kotb and Kamala Harris hear that the boy genius thinks they’re not hot enough for Maxim’s list, you can be sure they’ll feel pretty badly about themselves. Luckily, and thanks to Maxim, millions of other men will continue to objectify them so I’m sure they’ll be just fine.
If you are bold enough to click over to Breitbart for this gen of an “article,” do yourself a favor and don’t look at the comments; they’re everything you expect and worse.

I don’t think the dictionary really matters that much to CBS Sports commentator Tim Brando. At least not based on anything he wrote during a Twitter tirade today that lasted a few hours and, as I type this, is still going on.
Now, when I think about heroism, as I happen to do as the author of a book and co-host of a podcast on the topic, here’s the sort of thing I have in mind:
People act heroically when they make a potentially life-altering sacrifice or put themselves at some serious risk and they need not have done so. Most often, today, heroes are those whose actions are seen to benefit others; in the classical sense, however, heroism included a broader range of martial actions or feats of endurance that were not necessarily other-regarding.
There’s more to say, obviously, but that’s a quick first pass at a definition. It’s interesting and potentially very fruitful to debate particular heroes and definitions of heroic actions — and, obviously, I’m counting on it for the success of my book — but it’s noteworthy that Brando seems not to have offered a definition at all, despite claiming that his Twitter tirade was all due to his deep care for definitions.
“his deep care for definitions.” LOL!
Yikes, worst correction notice ever for NY Times?
