Nancy Lieberman is awesome.

RIP, Gunnar Hansen, best known as the villain Leatherface in the original 1974 horror film “The Texas Chain Saw Massacre”.

“The choice to double-down on that untrustworthy untruth, though, changes one’s relationship to that falsehood. It changes you from being its victim to being its champion. It means that you are no longer merely deceived, but that you are choosing to deceive others — that you have decided that leading others astray would be, for whatever reason, preferable to admitting that you’d ever been led astray yourself.”

RIP, Carol Doda, legendary burlesque dancer.

“It’s not just states under right-wing control where abortion clinics are closing their doors”.

How the Bush family misunderstood who and what Dick Cheney is.

“I can’t grasp how an intelligent, well-read man or woman, regardless of ideological commitments, could watch the Republican debate in Milwaukee on Tuesday night and not come away disgusted. I certainly did. It was a familiar feeling.”

Maybe try harvest gold and avocado green next time.
