Russia’s Absurd Stance on Champagne
The most absurd thing – I can’t even wrap my head around this! Putin passed a new law that ignores France’s appellations for champagne and rules that only domestically produced shampanskoye is only worthy of the prestigious name. Bizarre.

Gender Options on U.S. Passports
On the last day of Pride month, the State Department announced its plan to make it easier for transgender and nonbinary people to move around the planet. Passport applicants will now be able to self-select their gender without providing medical certification.
