Bruce Shapiro reports on the political fallout of the Orlando nightclub massacre. Many of us have wondered what goes on inside our pet dog's head - or what the world looks like from a bird's eye view. In his new book , Being a Beast, Charles Foster explores how an understanding of animals could make us better human beings.

In an addendum to this book, she raises questions about Kerr's upholding of the office of Governor General, pointing to continuing collusion also after the Dismissal.
