Brian’s lovely story about Mr. Rogers made me immediately think, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping,” when I saw this story of the very thoughtful and kind woman who helped 50 children find safety and comfort after the bombing in Manchester last night. - (RS)


FYI: In tonight’s broadcast, Sean Hannity decided to drop the Seth Rich conspiracy “for now, out of respect for the family.” Then he went on a rant against liberal fascists. Yes, I watched the first ten minutes. And no, I don’t know why I’m twitching uncontrollably.

It was long past time for the statues of the Confederate war leaders to come down in New Orleans (and everywhere in the South). Included in this excellent history lesson is a link to New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu’s impassioned speech detailing the necessity for the removal of the statues. It’s worth reading both the article and clicking through to read the speech. - (Upworthy)

Jessica Simpson isn’t pregnant and yay for her! However, this interview with Ellen makes me wonder how in the hell she raises the 2 kids she does have. Bless her heart. - (Celebitchy)

Here’s some fascinating insight into the likely deterioration of Donald Trump’s mind based on insights from linguistic experts. (StatNews)

President* Trump visited Israel (“after visiting the Middle East” - headdesk. Yeah, no one’s ever going to mistake him for a Rhodes Scholar, that’s for damn sure.) and signed the guestbook at the Holocaust memorial, Yad Vashem. Or he signed a middle school yearbook. Hard to tell which. - (Business Insider)

Vanity Fair has several different covers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. It makes me so sad to think this may be the last cover of a magazine that Carrie Fisher will ever grace. - (Lainey)

Oh, Rebel Rebel, I didn’t know about any of this (did you guys all know about this?) but now that you’ve gone and made a big ol’ deal and lawsuit out of it, EVERYBODY is going to know! That feels counterintuitive. - (Dlisted)

The Obamas are “just breathing, y’all” and my god, do they look good doing it! - (HuffPo)

Alec Baldwin’s Lyme Disease was no joke. I’ve known a couple of people who have had it and it sounds horrific. I feel for anyone going through that. - (Celebitchy)

MiMi is back with some Bryan dude, but honestly? I can’t even care because I can’t get beyond the phrase “[…] they were eating out of each other’s mouths.” So. Yep. - (LG)

Michael Chabon’s Moonglow is fiction, but he is more autobiographical in this story of his grandfather’s deathbed confession than in previous works. Borisanne says, "He has an ability with simile that dances next to synethesia, and then blows it out of the water." Are you a fan of Chabon’s writing? (Cannonball Read 9)

Sadly, as reported earlier, we lost Sir Roger Moore. But the sweet story below is such a wonderful tribute to a man who clearly understood the impact he could have on someone’s day. H/T Hannah Sole
