Our neighbor kids went back to school today and a) on a Tuesday? Weird. And b) I think I say this every year, but when did schools start their school years before Labor Day? Like, wasn’t that always the bellwether for the end of summer/beginning of the school year? When did/do your schools start up now vs when you were in school?

Oh, I 100% agree with Sharon Stone! And she looks fantastic. - (Lainey)

Could you do Beyoncé’s “22 Days” diet? - (The Root)

This is perfection.

Here’s some good news: they almost have an Ebola cure - (NYT)

Now it’s officially official, the role of Prince Eric in the live-action version of The Little Mermaid will be played by Harry Styles. Meh. - (TMS)

Also official? No grouse hunting at Balmoral this summer. Awwww, what a total bummer! - (Celebitchy)

There have been some WTF presidential candidates for 2020 so far, but what if they’re not finished yet? What if Tom Cruise jumped into the race? - (Dlisted)

If you’re in the northern mid-Ohio region next weekend, you might want to visit the Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield for a “Prison Party.” It’s not just any prison, it’s the one that housed Andy Dufresne and Red Redding 25 years ago (and my uncle 41 years ago, but that’s not really relevant…). There’s a 3-day Shawshank Redemption 25th Anniversary event with the director and cast members. - (

Disney and Marvel are excited about rebooting the X-Men franchise, but they gotta get The New Mutants out of the way first, and as for that film? They’re “unimpressed.” (Uproxx)

Honestly, I’m amazed they haven’t already managed to swap out “The New Colossus” plaque on the Statue of Liberty with some updated fuckery. If Ken Cuccinelli, the acting director of Citizenship and Immigration Services, had his way, they would! - (Jezebel)

Now that her daughter is 10, J is afraid for the first time of screwing up as a parent. She found help in Phyllis L. Fagell, a middle school guidance counselor. "In Middle School Matters, she identifies ten key skills that she thinks are paramount for kids to master and offers concrete ways that parents can help their tweens grow." What’s your best advice for parenting a tween? (Cannonball Read 11)
