NPH is going to be playing Hedwig on Broadway, and I need to go and see that. If you’re unfamiliar with “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” it’s the love story only made possible by a back alley castration in East Berlin before the fall of the wall. Seriously.
And America’s Best Christian, Betty Bowers is back:
That’s it for now, see, really short! Have a great one!
I have a bunch of stuff to pass on, but I cut the tip of my index finger, so typing is strange, at best. I’ll see what I can do, but I should be back soon with the rest of what I have (unless work does in fact manage to kill me this week).
If you truly believe that labor unions are so evil and/or unnecessary—indeed, un-American—then why don’t you volunteer to give up all the rights and benefits the labor movement has won for working Americans over the past 140 years? You know, little things like the 8-hour workday, weekends, paid overtime, paid sick, holiday and vacation days, child labor laws, workplace safety, workers compensation for on-job injuries, unemployment insurance, health care insurance, maternity leave and family medical leave… not to mention the minimum wage, Social Security, and Medicare, plus a whole lot of other things I’m probably forgetting.
Go ahead, give those things up. Because without organized labor, you wouldn’t have any of those rights or benefits in the first place.

Abigail Adams was not the ugliest first lady, by any means. Just frighteningly severe and voted most likely to “cut a bitch.”
