* Judge Maryanne Trump Barry recently retired from the Third Circuit, meaning that not only will the judicial ethics inquiry into her alleged inheritance tax evasion be all for naught, but her little brother, President Donald Trump, will appoint her successor.

2019 Oscars expected to beat last year for viewership but still draw 2nd-lowest ratings on record

HOLLYWOOD — ABC’s Oscars telecast is expected to be the second-least watched on record when final viewership figures are released Tuesday, beating out only last year’s show.

2019 Oscars Winners: ‘Green Book’ Wins Best Picture, But Alfonso Cuarón Takes Best Director

The 91st Academy Awards aired live on ABC last night, and the ceremony went surprisingly smoothly without a host to lead the way. In fact, this might be the best way to do the Oscars from now on. But you didn’t come here for chatter about the ceremony itself. You just want to know the 2019 Oscars winners, and those who came away with a trophy certainly made for some surprising moments, for better or worse. Green Book walked away with Best Picture, even though director Alfonso Cuarón won Best Di...

Justice Ginsburg made a public appearance last week — but the internet still thinks she’s dead

On Monday, the day before President Trump’s State of the Union Address, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg attended a performance celebrating her life at a museum in Washington — her first public appearance since December. It did little to convince the internet’s most morbid conspiracy theorists that she wasn’t dead. Justice Ginsburg, or RBG as she’s known to her fans on the internet, underwent surgery on her left lung in November to remove malignant nodules, a surgery that doctors say we...

Oscar Documentary Nominees Break the Mold

Known as a notoriously unpredictable bunch, the Academy’s documentary branch has become rather predictable in the past two years. The evidence lies in the films they choose not to recognize come Oscar time: Films such as Brett Morgen’s 2017 Jane Goodall docu, “Jane,” and two of last year’s biggest nonfiction box office successes — Morgan […]

A Good Day

It was a very good day: waking to the news of Roger Stone's  arrest (and his Ni xon tattoo too -- really, what was he thinking?) Then came 45*'s concession speech and the presumed end (albeit temporary) to the mind-boggling stupid government shutdown. Now the Coast Guard can cancel those bake sales and government workers can quit negotiating with their local grocers for food. And perhaps we won't have to hear anymore tone deaf suggestions about simply taking out loans. Or any...

Scotus to consider nyc gun case

It seems that the NRA and other NY gun rights groups are pushing back on concealed carry in NYC. SCOTUS will be hearing the case in October. It would be great if RBG has retired by then an replaced with a Pro Constitution Justice. Great way to push back . Hope it catches fire across the Republic. https://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/su.../22/id/899246/

I watched the announcement of the Oscar nominations....

... and you can too:Did any of you watch that? I'm sure you can easily find the list of nominees somewhere. Feel free to comment about the specifics and try to resist simply saying you don't care about Oscars or you don't like Hollywood generally. I know!I'll just say:1. I've only seen 2 of the movies under discussion — "The Isle of Dogs" (nominated for best animated movie) and "RBG" (nominated for best documentary and for some song that I don't remember). The only one I saw in the theater was "...
