Please join me in meeting and greeting our newest Star Kit, Sookie. She is 4 weeks old from Louisiana.

Sookie

Hey y’all. Just got Sookie from our local non kill shelter. She stole my heart at first glance! She is so sweet and a purring machine!! She loves her pink blanket and takes biscuits and tries to nurse on it. She’s a beautiful ball of fur and I can’t wait to make many memories with her.

Campaign Action

Huzzah to State Sen. Jamilah Nasheed. After the Missouri legislature sent its latest forced-birther bill to the governor, the St. Louis Democrat, first elected in 2012, didn’t hold back in her characterization of yet another obstacle added in the path of women seeking abortions. She said

“This trash piece of legislation, which isn’t worth the price of the paper it’s printed on, will go down in flames in a court of law.”

That’s the kind of language we ought to hear a lot more often whenever lawmakers in Missouri or any other state choose to make abortion more difficult, more expensive, more time-consuming, more shaming, more a slap in the face to Roe v. Wade and Whole Women’s Health v. Hellerstedt

Nasheed thinks the new legislation sent to Eric Greitens, the Republican governor who calls himself “pro-life,” will wind up in court just as some previous regulations have done. In April, a federal judge blocked a Missouri law requiring hospital admitting privileges for physicians who perform abortions and requiring clinics providing abortions to be mini-hospitals. In its Hellerstedt ruling last year, the U.S. Supreme Court knocked down similar provisions in a Texas law. Missouri taxpayers also had to cough up more than $156,000 to reimburse Planned Parenthood for legal bills it had to pay in fighting a dispute over a clinic’s abortion license. 

Missouri is one of seven states that now have just a single abortion clinic. Lawmakers in several of those states have been eager to try to shut down those solo clinics as well. But their efforts have also run afoul of the federal courts.

Several months ago, Stiles was dying. And several months ago, he sent out goodbye videos to his friends. Now, the doctors say he's "fine." So now he has a problem...the biggest of which is a video to a certain werewolf explaining in vivid detail his undying love for said werewolf.

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is one of the most well-represented movies in pop culture art. The reason being it’s such a vibrant, wide-ranging movie, it offers almost innumerable visual interpretations. One such example is this new one by Tom Whalen, which is chock-full of detail and eye-popping brightness.

Lennon and McCartney, Jay-Z and Kanye West, Joey and Chandler from Friends: Whether we know them from TV, popular music and culture, or real life, there is a certain feeling of sadness when we see a great bromance come to an end. But sadness isn’t quite the right word to apply to what appears to be a rapidly fading bromance between Donald Trump and his hand-picked Attorney General Jeff Sessions. In fact, nothing right now is more bizarre and downright incomprehensible than how Donald Trump insists on bullying and publicly humiliating his former buddy in an effort to discredit him and get him to resign.

Of course, Jeff is not at all on board with this plan. He’s holding on tight to their dynamic little duo—not so much because of his endless love for The Donald but because of an intense desire to keep his dream job. Though he’s been fairly quiet as he bears the indignity of being repeatedly dissed by his boss, it turns out that Jeffy is not happy right now. In fact, according to people who know him, he’s pissed

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has no plans to leave office, as friends say he’s grown angry with President Donald Trump following a series of attacks meant to marginalize his power and, potentially, encourage his resignation.

“Sessions is totally pissed off about it,” said a Sessions ally familiar with his thinking. “It’s beyond insane. It’s cruel and it’s insane and it’s stupid.”

As with any messy breakup, mutual friends of the pair are often forced to chose a side—and this case is no exception. From his own mouth (and James Comey’s), we know that Trump demands loyalty of his partners. When he doesn’t get that, he acts out and has a temper tantrum worthy of the worst-behaved toddler. But loyalty is in short supply here, as Republicans are not with Trump on this. They are clearly choosing Jeff’s side—which will only make Trump angrier. But it also provides all the ammunition Sessions needs to remain firmly entrenched in his position. He’s not resigning. That’s his story and he’s sticking to it.

I have this idea to make something as a unique art project. It is either the craziest, dumbest, most impractical thing ever … or it’s a crazy, dumb, impractical thing that will be awesome.

I will need exactly one million people, from anywhere in the world, to make it happen. I wonder if that’s possible.

Feel free to speculate, if you’re into that sort of thing.
