According to The Daily Beast’s summary, the script includes several mentions of Hillary’s presidential aspirations and desire to be taken seriously as a woman in a field dominated by men. There’s also a steamy sex scene between Hillary and Bill where the two “devour each other.” Later, while making up after a long separation, Bill plays Hillary some songs on his saxophone.
On May 1, Disney filed trademark applications to secure ‘Dia de los Muertos’ across multiple platforms for an upcoming Pixar film.
They’ve since withdrawn it, but still. Who thought that was an okay idea? Unbelievable.
As my head uncluttered, my attention span expanded. In my first month or two, 10 pages of The Odyssey was a slog. Now I can read 100 pages in a sitting, or, if the prose is easy and I’m really enthralled, a few hundred.

It’s no Odyssey, but I finished the 300+ pages of The Chaperone in one day over the past weekend. A hardback from the library no less!

Koch Industries, the sprawling private company of which Charles G.

On my walk late this morning, I got honked at by a truck on Oltorf. Part of me thought, well, that never happened when I walked down Shoal Creek, and part of me thought, am I supposed to be flattered?
Then I wanted to flip them off, but my thoughts caused me to pause too late to react. Can’t I just walk home from the library in my new neighborhood in daylight without having to be on the receiving end of some ridiculously quick appraisal/judgement of my appearance/level of attractiveness?
Is that too much to ask? UGH.

“Passing this legislation is not just a victory on the House floor. This is victory for America” - Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger, D-Md., on CISPA passing in the House
Our lawmakers are delusional.
Like Pope Emeritus Benedict, Francis believes that the nuns focus too much on serving their communities around issues of health care and economic justice and too little on gay people and abortion. In a report issued by the Vatican under Benedict’s leadership, the Holy See accused the group of undermining “issues of crucial importance to the life of Church and society, such as the Church’s Biblical view of family life and human sexuality” and promoting a “radical feminist themes incompatible with the Catholic faith.”
