San Francisco is a city defined entirely by change. But not all change is created equal.

Every city is defined to an extent by reputation. When you hear about Los Angeles, you likely envision the smog-obscured vistas, movie stars, traffic jams and warm beaches that make the "City of Angels" more than just a place, but an idea. When you hear the name Detroit, you probably picture the automotive industry and its ultimate collapse, which, in turn, eventually collapsed the city of Detroit itself.

Pete Buttigieg Takes Down Tucker Carlson For Parental Leave Smear

Transportation Sec. Pete Buttigieg took down Tucker Carlson for spreading homophobic smears about his parental leave. Buttigieg said on MSNBC’s Deadline: White House:. Look, in his case, I guess he just doesn’t understand the concept of bottle feeding, let alone the concept of paternity leave but what’s really strange is that, you know, this is from a side of the aisle that used to claim the mantle of being pro-family. What we have right now is an administration that’s actually pro-family, and I’m blessed to be able to experience that as an employee, being able to have the flexibility to take care of our newborn children, which is, by the way, work. It’s joyful work. It’s wonderful work. But it’s definitely work.
