    Thank goodness I missed that entire a*ss whooping that Kei got from Kevin.

    Thank God this kid survived! One thing that so many of my relatives abroad are just beginning to understand is how perilous it is to simply be Black and living in the U.S. where your life can be in jeopardy or ended simply for being Black and living! It's insane! It's not that black women were in love with HRC, we recognized her weaknesses as a candidate but we also knew that it would get so much worse with a man like Trump in the White House. A lot of people asserted that only certain groups of people would be in jeopardy and they wouldn't be affected-- well, they were wrong. The flames of hatred are being fanned in many directions and many groups of people who believed that it wouldn't touch them are now discovering quite the opposite.

    The GOP tax cuts, which will likely come as a surprise to no one, have so far, failed to live up to most of their promises. Proponents of these tax cuts claim that it will take awhile to see measurable success for real people but in the meantime, the deficit (which the GOP used to claim to care about) continues to explode, soaring to levels not seen since the U.S. was trying to pull itself out of the Great Recession. Trump’s Tax Cut Was Supposed to Change Corporate Behavior. Here’s What Happened.

    There is an upcoming documentary on R. Kelly and his exploitation of young women that should be out soon.

    Hopefully there are more indictments coming soon but in the meantime...

    Jack Sock failing upward, per usual. Interestingly, the "Woman" being in quotes is stirring a lot of controversy. From what I've read on social media, many people are unhappy with the use of quotes on the GQ cover and thought the word Woman should've simply be written on its own.

    Grinning like an idiot. Is Putin his sugar daddy coming with the rent money or something?

    Were Bernie's quotes about low information Southern black voters also a misrepresentation? He has built up a solid history of statements and gestures to show him to be dismissive of the issues that are of concern to marginalized groups, particularly those of color and women. Bye to him! Anyhoo, looka here...but am I surprised that HRC would get raked over the coals for something that like many other men have done and likely continue to do? Absolutely not.

    Did Andy use the same barber as Grigor?

    "Murphy Brown" revival 2018

    The episodes seem to be getting more energetic, especially, in terms of comedic timing and the plot surrounding each episode. I just watched episodes six and seven and think it's a very good idea to really highlight the ensemble cast. I was wondering how they were going to resolve the Election episode (episode 6) and it sort of concluded on a cliffhanger, which was wise. The only thing was watching episode 7 on the heels of the Election episode, there was no follow-up of the results, with good reason, of course. It makes me wonder, though, if there is time to revisit some aspect of the midterms in a future episode this season, or are all the episodes already in the can? At the core of that episode, imo was the B story of an apathetic Phyllis being convinced to vote because her employee Miguel, a Dreamer, cannot. Episode 7 was really well done, imo, with the lifetime achievement award for Jim Dial being at the center and helping to advance plot and character trajectories and Miles being caught up in the drama of his employee Pat and Pat's catty ex-boyfriend, after just realizing that Pat was gay made me chuckle. Jim and Murphy both coming to the realization that they've closed off parts of their life that they should be open to, was a nice moment. I hope that John Larroquette is a recurring character. Bette Midler as the gold-digging, grave snatching widow who was once one of Murphy's secretaries but is now the new owner of the network was a clever touch. I'm sure that character will pop in from time to time. I kind of like seeing the meanness seep out of Corky's studied sunshine demeanor but I do wonder how long they can stretch the menopause humor. One thing that this iteration of the show has done fairly well, which is admirable, is how they've gone about incorporating characters from the show's history with some of the newer characters.
