A man kills women because he can't have them. An elected politician reacts harshly to speech he doesn't like. Supporters and critics of Wolf's monologue rip each other apart over whether Wolf went too far or got it just right. 

This is our second Monday in a row where we book no guests and take your calls. What does this mean to you? It's your calls and Colin.

On April 23, a 25-year-old Toronto man and self-proclaimed 'incel' killed 10 people, mostly women, because women don't want to have sex with him. 

Last week, long-standing House chaplain Father Patrick Conroy, revealed that House Speaker Paul Ryan asked him to resign, likely for a political comment 'Father Pat' made in a prayer. 

This weekend, comedian Michelle Wolf gave acringe-worthy roastat the White House Correspondent's Dinner that burned nearly everyone in her path. The reactions were more vicious than the roast.

There seems to be a bitterness filling our culture during these troubled times and that bitterness is  emanating from all of us. It's tearing us apart. Are we losing our way?
