Eva Evans
Stacy McCain has the sads as a TikTok Inluencer Hangs Herself

While hanging yourself is bad, it beats lighting yourself on fire, I suppose. Unless and until the contents of Eva’s suicide note are made public, we have no idea what motivated her suicide, but probably a lot of social-media “influencers” are desperately depressed. Engaging in online exhibitionism in a competitive quest for “clout” isn’t the sort of occupation that emotionally stable people are apt to pursue — really, have you seen the kind of kooks that LibsOfTikTok finds? — and you could see how such a career might lead to feelings of hopeless despair. But why hang yourself? Just log off and delete your account. A recent study found 74% of teenagers feel happier without their smartphones. As the song says, “If it makes you happy, then why the hell are you so sad?”

Hat Hair's John Sexton shares Scenes from the Columbia 'Liberated Zone'. From Fox, Jewish-American alum says Columbia president should have taken these steps 'the second' protests started.

"The case for “shallow Christianity” as a seedbed for rising hostility to Jews."

At the Martin Center, Why Plagiarism Matters "To ignore high-level cheating is to tear down the rule of law itself." James Nault at LI reports Thomas Jefferson High School Drops Out of Top Ten Nationwide After Adopting “Equity” Admissions Policy. “TJ for the first time dropped out of the top 10 of the US News list of top US high schools, falling from being number 1 2020-2022, to 5 in 2023, to now 14 in 2024”
