I never said that it is a justification for not removing bail (or maintaining a high bail) in this case. I was simply pointing out further inequality in the system based on race. The fact that this dude got his bail removed and the judge used his assessment of the accused as “high achieving” (based on what?) as Read more

I totally agree with the assessment of the bail system. But, keep in mind who the bail system generally does keep locked up. If the accused had been any other color and if the judge did not have his good white boy goggles on, the motion would never have been granted (or likely, made). The system is awful, the Read more

When hasn’t a mediocre white man gotten a second chance?

Ugh, the Sweet and Lowdown. I don’t care how awesome of an actress Samantha Morton is, her character is literally mute. I just couldn’t help but think that this was Woody’s ultimate dream girl - barely above a teen and unable to speak. Read more

I was just going to write the same thing. It is a fantastic novel/series. I enjoyed the second one as well. I am now waiting for the third to arrive at my doorstep any minute.

Many moons ago, I was dating a nice, good-looking, very respectable young man. It was a good relationship, but there were never really any sparks, so to speak. One night, I was hanging out with a “newish” friend and she asked me if I wanted to go with her to meet up with some of her friends for drinks and dancing. Read more

Not just smart. A hidden genius that no one understands.

I am so here for this. Nicole Kidman does restraint so so well. It will be one hell of a visceral relief to see her drop all of that and kick some ass.

Ah, the tried and true method of an awesomely talented actress jumping at the chance to play something besides a beautiful, semi-mute, wife, girlfriend, sex object, or any combo thereof.

Yep. It was only a matter of time. She was the frontrunner suspect for writing the NYT op-ed piece. And with her goes the vast majority of the brain cells running our country.

Is hating on Taylor Swift no matter what a specific rider in the employment contract with Jezebel?

I would love a horror movie themed barrage of postcards a la “I know what you did the summer of 1982"

She’s donated pretty hefty sums of money to RAINN, supported Kesha in a financial way, and has suported GLSEN for many years now. She may not be the most woke or enlightened person out there, but I wouldn’t say she is doing the bare fucking minimum.

This seriously did not need to be the week to take a dump on Taylor Swift for doing something right.

Also, send postcards as opposed to letters in envelopes - less security concerns that way.

Serena’s. Her character espoused misogynistic doctrine to subjugate women and dressed it up as religious/pious bs. She was the pretty face that sold wholesale violence against women. In other words...a typical white Republican woman.

Nope. Not today. Not this week. No, I won’t accept the same old shit is anything but just because it’s served up by a lesbian woman.
