Upset over the Supreme Court's 5-4 ruling in the Hobby Lobby case, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., says the Senate soon will act to “ensure that women's lives are not determined by virtue of five white men.” Sen. Reid is either blind or he was implying that black Associate Justice Clarence Thomas is an “Uncle Tom.” If it's the former, we suggest Reid have his glasses checked. If it's the latter, Reid is not fit for public office. ... Business Insider has some bad news for the Obama administration's equal-pay hypocrites. It says salary data released this month “revealed average male staffers at the White House earn about 13 percent more than their female counterparts.” Citing information from the Target Point consulting firm, it also says that while “the average man promoted at the White House received a 24.4 percent raise,” raises for promoted women were 18.5 percent. That disparity aside, who in the private sector, male or female, is getting those kinds of raises these days? ... Here's a major feather in the cyber cap of Dick's Sporting Goods: The New York Times reports that the retailer, based in Pittsburgh, had 5 million visitors to its website in May, the last month for which statistics are available. And that's tops in the country. The Golfsmith website was No. 2 — but 1 million visits behind. The Dick's number is impressive by any standard.
