    Isn't there a Ms. Potato Head? There is in Toy Story. What happened to her? Did anyone ask she/her about transforming Mr. Potato Head to they?

    Monopoly is only possible with government protection. Without that consumers decide who makes what products.

    Another article about wealth inequality. I wonder why the war on poverty and other welfare programs weren’t mentioned.

    That list is depressing
    Both for scope and the speed it happened.

    I agree that government doesn't solve it, but I don't see that article as proof unless it both came up with a good way to measure government involvement, and showed that said involvement decreased over all the various time-spans used in the article.

    Well, look at the comment about 2016-2019 and map that to Trump reducing regulations and taxes during that time. Not one for one effect but it fits together.

    Some first ladies don't mind Dr. Seuss at all. In fact, this one, seems to love Dr. Seuss:

    My daughter watched The PBS Kids "Cat In The Hat". Martin Short is the voice of The Cat. Is he a liberal? Will he apologize? Will the show be taken off the air even though one the 2 kids in the show is a black kid?

    Lunacy.

    Yeah really...

    I always considered Dr. Seuss's world a pure world of fantasy, with only loose connections to the real world. It's all about fantastical creatures, not about the supposed race or ethnicity of the few human types in the books.

    It’s about time to update and remake Fahrenheit 451. It would be the biggest target of the cancel anti-culture.

    I’ve seen a number of black media personalities, both liberal and conservative, question the cancelling of Dr Suess. I think they are realizing it is “jumping the shark” on real racism that might still exist.

    I was under the impression that if a person says one thing deemed racist in their life then they are canceled. So why isn't every book by Dr. Suess not canceled? He clearly showed his true colors. Ban all his books or STFU.

    The "racist" image of a Chinese man eating chopsticks was once on a mural in a museum in Illinois. It was slated to be tossed out when it was purchased by an Asian-American man who said "That's my ancestors coming to this country in the 1930s. We did not come wearing Louis Vuitton and Gucci. Why do you want to change history?"

    Recall any specific names or links?
