    Harassment scandal(s) in Hollywood

    My kids really liked it. I liked it until the men arrived. I guess I just felt as if there was so much CGI that I was practically watching an animated fim. I had heard such glowing reviews of it, and frankly I was disappointed. More badass women would have been better.

    Harassment scandal(s) in Hollywood

    Rumors about RIchardson and Toback have been around forever. I thought Charlie Sheen was the name associated with the Coreys. Reiner would be shocking, especially since I just read an interview with him today where he said Weinstein was disgusting.

    Harvey Weinstein

    I was very disappointed by Meryl Streep's statement that she had no idea any of this was happening. I have to call BS on that; I knew about it, and I have no connections to the entertainment industry. I find it impossible to believe that Meryl Streep, Judi Dench, et al. were oblivious to what was happening.

    Peter? He was in Candor before joining Dauntless.

    Kill (or "ditch)/Screw/Marry

    I only know one of these people by name - does that make me old? Michael B Jordan was Wallace on season 1 of The Wire. That's how I know him. Miles Teller I know thanks to the Divergent movies, which seem to follow me everywhere. I know all of these guys by name, athough I don't think I've seen Ephron in anything. I'm too old to even contemplate screwing any of them. :-(

    That must have been one heck of a big steak.

    Celeb Death Watch

    I....want to not be happy about this. Sure, he was an asshole, but he's dead now, so..... I prefer to focus on the legacy left by a man of talent and greatness -- Chris Cornell.

    I'm in shock; it doesn't seem real. What a voice. Such sad news. :-(

    Election Year 2016

    Keep calling your members of Congress. It's past time for them to do more than say that they are "troubled" and "concerned."

    Election Year 2016

    Speaking of the Washington Post, tonight they ran an opinion piece from Charles Krauthammer, of all people, calling Comey's firing a "political ax murder" and questioning the plausibility of all explanations for that decision that do not include the word " Russia." Of course, Agent Orange himself said in an interview today that he was motivated by frustration over the fact that the Russia investigations won't go away.

    Election Year 2016

    As much as I hope you are right, as long as craven, soulless, power-hungry creatures like Mitch McConnell run the Senate I am doubtful that anything other than mass protests (meaning, 50 million people, not five million) that shut down the country will force change. I called my members of Congress first thing this morning, to voice my support for the statements they already had made, but I know that my voice carries very little weight. We need some GOP leaders to show some spine and some decency and act in the best interest of the nation rather than in the best interest of their own careers. What's happening should transcend party lines; it ought to be a matter of basic decency, of commitment to what we say are our nation's values, to speak up and take action. It should be easy. History will judge our leaders, and us, for how we behave during this time.

    Met Gala

    It looked like there was a lot of excessive eyeliner; I didn't even recognize Claire Danes.
