Look: I know the President has to screw up in some way even more colossally catastrophic than he already has before he’s impeached, but it seems like we are still in the realm of normal for other government officials, in which case: Brett Kavanaugh should not be confirmed. He should be impeached. (Slate)
This is a new horrible tragic twist on 2018: A cop killed a black man after she mistook him for an intruder after she entered his apartment. (The Root)
2018 has been a shitshow, but at least it gave us this:

I spent 20 minutes on the Nike site today trying to find Kaepernick merch. They don’t have any (at least not yet). If they did, this would be much higher than 31 percent.
In the meantime:

Thanks to the efforts of Laura Dern, Steven Spielberg and others, the “Popular Oscar” category has been scuttled, at least for now. (NYTimes)

Did you guys notice the garbage people who swung by our comments section on the Shane Black piece yesterday defending pedophiles? Well, they’re going after Olivia Munn, too.
💛 @ThomasSadoski Your support means so much. It’s amazing how many people expect you to put the movie first, especially if you’re the lead. On something like this- where a child has been hurt- my silence will never be for sale. And if it costs me my career they can take it. https://t.co/buG6prMWr1— om (@oliviamunn) September 6, 2018

I’m contractually obligated. And from what I’m experiencing, I think they’d prefer I not show up. It would make everyone breathe easier.

Now that the scene is deleted I think audiences will love it. https://t.co/6MZxb4NZfT— om (@oliviamunn) September 7, 2018

Catherine Lowell’s The Madwoman Upstairs has a descendant of the Brontës and an Oxford professor searching for a literary treasure and reenacting Jane Eyre. If you could be descended from any famous author, who would you choose? (Cannonball Read 10)
