The youngest woman ever elected to Congress has responded to producer Aaron Sorkin’s demand that the new intake of Democrats ‘stop acting like young people’ - saying if politicians do not show up and fight for them, they cannot expect their vote.

Who The Boston Bruins May Target At The Trade Deadline

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe, While some Bruins fans might dream of the stars shipping Tyler Seguin back to the Hub, that’s not happening. But don’t rule out Sweeney and Gorton again swapping assets, as they did this time a year ago and then again on the eve of the new season when Adam McQuaid went down the Amtrak rails for Steven Kampfer. All but assured they’ll miss the playoffs, the Rangers, in Boston Saturday with a 20-20-7 mark, likely will be active traders, which ...

50 years ago, these were the No. 1 albums and music singles of 1969

In 1969 you either bought your music on black plastic circles and used a needle to scratch sounds out of the vinyl, heard it on the airwaves, most likely on a lo-fi AM radio, or, if you were lucky, saw your favorite bands and musicians live in concert. The best-selling album of the year, Iron Butterfly’s “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida,” plateaued at No. 4 on the charts, but that’s probably because the 10 albums that made it to the top were more uniformly solid, nearly all of them still considered classics....

Betty Buckley relishes starring in ‘Hello, Dolly!’ which comes to Southern California for 4 weeks

Not just anyone can step into the role of fast-talking, charismatic agent of ardor, Dolly Gallagher Levi from Thornton Wilder’s “The Matchmaker.” It became a classic musical in 1964 when “Hello, Dolly!”, starring the late Carol Channing, premiered on Broadway. Pearl Bailey took over the role, and in 1969 Barbra Streisand immortalized it on the big screen. And then there’s Bette Midler, a natural fit for brassy Dolly, who owned the part in the 2017 Broadway revival, winning one of the show’s four...
