The sky turned gray and wind swirled unnaturally from the east while birds flew frantically. Smoke and dust blotted out the early afternoon sun above this tiny former railroad town surrounded by tall pine trees and rolling, brittle yellow wheat fields just south of Spokane. Tree branches swung in the opposite direction and 60 mile-an-hour winds slammed against the wrong side of her house, as if the town had been flipped like a snow globe. Rankin’s garden — 6-foot-tall hedges and ro… Read More “A year after fire destroyed Malden, a grieving town slowly rebuilds”

California Moves to Outlaw “Stealthing,” Or Removing a Condom During Sex

Published by
InsideHook

By Kayla Kibbe One of the few good things the internet has done for society is make it easier to come up with new words for common shared experiences for which we previously lacked vocabulary — often because we’ve also previously lacked a platform on which to address these experiences with like-minded individuals.
