Our beloved Notorious RGB (also known to most of society as Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg), stopped by the 92nd Y in New York last weekend to chat with former President of the Supreme Court of Israel Dorit Beinisch and NPR’s Nina Totenberg. She shared that she owns several Notorious RBG t-shirts and that she’s very much looking forward to the opera that’s in the works for next summer about her friendship with Justice Antonin Scalia. She also took the opportunity to drop some world-class RBG wisdom. She says there won’t be enough women on the Supreme Court until there are nine (preach), and drops what I think be the motto of every lawmaker out there:
“The great thing about our Constitution is, like our society, it can evolve.”
A shooter at Marysville-Pilchuck High School, just outside of Seattle, has killed at least three people, including himself, and shot six, according to Marysville-Pilchuck students who have been tweeting through the shooting for the last two hours. The shooter, a male student at the school, opened fire in the school’s cafeteria during lunch period. The names of the deceased have been released to students, but the Marysville Police have yet to release any information to the press concerning the number of students injured or killed or the identities of the deceased.
Several of the students have had information requested by the police and several have turned it down. This Daily Dot article aggregated a few of the live tweets from students during the shooting — they’re insightful and worth looking into, but of course, please don’t contact the students in this moment of distress. Hashtags #MPHS, #PrayForMP, #PrayForMarysville, and #PrayForPilchuck are trending. [Daily Dot]
In some ways, I have not changed a bit since I was 13 years old. I still listen to Pearl Jam and I still rock the hell out of a flannel shirt. If you were a child of the ’90s, chances are pretty good that your closet was once packed with an array of flannel shirts, a hallmark of the terribly named “grunge” era. But flannels are hardly a relic of the past and you should totally add one to your winter wardrobe. First of all, they are warm and comfy. Secondly, the oversized, shapeless style has been replaced with cuts that flatter your figure, making a well-tailored flannel totally appropriate for all sorts of occasions, from office holiday parties to estate sale shopping. Dammit, I love a flannel, and I think you should love them too. Here are three ways to wear this one from American Eagle Outfitters…
“If you knew the sacrifices that I have made, the things that I have given up, and the pieces of myself that I have given away for you, and you treat me this way. You declare war on me, and you shame me, and you make me beg for scraps when I have done nothing but fight for you.” – Mellie
Dearest Mellie Grant,
You are the tragic hero the White House forgot. How different your life would be if you’d been born a man, able to use your advanced degree to change the world instead of relying on your cute outfits and good looks to get by in your husband Fitz’s shadow. He will go down in the history books for all he did for this great nation (which, mostly, he did jack shit), while your years of behind-the-scenes hard work will be attributed to his name or simply forgotten.

Ooooh, there’s going to be a new live-action Archie show called “Riverdale,” written by Archie writer and Archie Comics CCO Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and produced by Berlanti Productions, which is the production house for “Arrow,” “The Flash,” and the upcoming “Supergirl.” It’s going to be a “subversive” look at small-town life, featuring Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead, and Reggie, as well as other well-known Archie characters like Josie and the Pussycats. Can we get Sabrina in there, too, and can we get Melissa Joan Hart to play Hilda or Zelda? Keep reading »
