Andrea, Jennifer, and The 2 Williams.

I assured you that I would write this post. It's something that should be very fun for me, but I've made it obligatory. I said "It's one of my favorite stories ever." And then, fooling about in the comments: Every task seems like more fun than the subject I regard as the ripest of the week, Andrea, Jennifer, and The 2 Williams. What is wrong with me? I just got up to make my 5th cup of coffee! Did William Shakespeare drink coffee? Did William Faulkner?... "He didn't have coffee, he didn't have v...

Trump's impeachment attorney was ruthlessly mocked by political figures on both sides of the aisle over his rambling opening statement

C-SPAN One of Trump's impeachment lawyers delivered a rambling opening statement on Tuesday.  Bruce Castor Jr. was brutally mocked by political figures across the aisle of his remarks.  "There is no argument.

The Hidden Heroine

It's that time of the year again. Everyone who's got a beating heart knows that as soon as February rolls around, there's a major holiday to be reckoned with, one that's come to symbolize the meaning of love and romance for America, if not the world. I'm speaking, of course, about Groundhog Day (which this year on 02-02-21 has a nice numerical look to it). Granted, there was a time, long ago (i.e. before 1993), when this holiday lacked the romantic associations since bestow...

Leo Full Moon: Follow the Sun

T he Full Moon in warm, open-hearted, playful Leo (Jan. 28, 2021, 11:16 am PST) stands in kittenish contrast to the Sun in Aquarius’ cooler, Saturn-ruled style. Ruled by the Sun, Leo seems custom-made to shine brightly and joyfully. But while I was born with the Sun in this extravagant sign, I’m something of a failed Leo. My mother used to tell me that I started out as the sunniest, happiest child she’d ever seen. Perhaps it’s true. Certainly I’ve seen pictures of myself as a little girl, look...

"... ban him from future office; expel Cruz and Hawley; and then vote to censure others who tried to deny voters the president and vice president they chose. McConnell should do these things not because it is the only moral, decent course, but because he is smarter than McCarthy and knows that to do any less would starve his members of financial support and set them up for losses from pro-democracy primary challengers or Democrats. And we know one thing: McConnell is not dumb."  From "Impeachm...

‘Sound of Metal’ Director Darius Marder Shot on 35mm Because It’s “My Goddamn Movie” [Interview]

Sound of Metal is a movie pulsating with life. It’s such a gut-churning drama, the kind you feel instinctually in every passing moment. It’s a pure debut film from director Darius Marder.

Thanksgiving could be make-or-break for US coronavirus response

By MICHAEL RUBINKAM | Associated Press In Pennsylvania, if you’re having friends over to socialize, you’re supposed to wear a mask — and so are your friends. That’s the rule, but Barb Chestnut has no intention of following it. “No one is going to tell me what I can or not do in my own home” said Chestnut, 60, of Shippensburg. “They do not pay my bills and they are not going to tell me what to do.” As governors and mayors grapple with an out-of-control pandemic, they are ratcheting up mask mandat...

MAGA mean kids want you to be nice to them about Trump losing

Donald J. Trump holds a rally at Giant Center November 4, 2016 in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Mark Makela/Getty Images MAGA media types have taken delight in "Leftist Tears" for years, but now that Trump's been resoundingly defeated, they demand sensitivity for their feelings (and Trump's!).  The same Trumpists who've called Democrats delusional crybabies for not accepting election results are also, now, not accepting election results and spreading baseless nonsense about voter fraud.  Presiden...

Facebook steps into cloud gaming — and another feud with Apple

Facebook will soon be the latest tech giant to enter the world of cloud gaming.
