I can do that.  If we do get some sort of update, we can reinstate it.

A couple comments on today's TDS stories:


<<< Michelle Williams will star in “This Is Jane,” Amazon Studios’ historical drama that follows women who provided abortion services in the years before legalized abortion. >>>

Sounds like a really niche audience for a film like this, no matter the quality of the final product. 


<<< Might This Become the New Pride Flag? >>>

I hope not.

<<< Katie Hill, a bisexual Democrat, could be the person to unseat anti-LGBTQ lawmaker Steve Knight in the U.S. mid-term election later this year.  >>>

Let's hope so.

I do have a few tattoos, but not that one!  And certainly not there!   :laugh:

Hopefully not too far off topic.. wasn't sure where to post b/c I know we have a lot of MIAOS fans here..

A reminder from our Bettermost friends... Man In An Orange Shirt (MIAOS) is airing in the US on PBS Sunday 17 June 18 at 22:00/10:00 PM EDT.  (Check your local times for the listing). Try not to miss it. It is the full 2 hour run. Many homages to BBM (if you are paying close attention!!) and a story which rips to your core (stops typing now)  We discussed in several threads.  I really like this one!  V.

Thanks, Vincent. I have recorded it, so I make sure I don't miss it. I'll have the tissues ready.

I had to look up this word from a TDS article, applied to Heath Ledger:

lar·ri·kin / ˈlerəkən /
noun
a boisterous, often badly behaved young man.

I often applied it to a student. They were the types who would drive you mad in class but you could not dislike, in fact often liked. Not bad but mischievous.

Re: "Heath Ledgers life in art." from the Daily Sheet.

Don't know how it could be arranged ...but how I wish...WISH the display of Heaths
things could be bought to England and other places. I know he was a Perth boy....
but he is so loved and missed in so many places in the world ...we would all love to
be able to be a part of "his" world that once was....just for a moment.
Wanting him to come back... before anyone notices
part of the world has not moved...since he left.

Lizzo is one of the few people in that music genre that I am familiar with, at least her name and one of her pieces. The NPR program On Being closes each Sunday morning with her hip-hop delivery of the show's credits!
