Heartbreaking news today: Peter Mayhew, the actor who played Chewbacca in the Star Wars series, has passed away at the age of 74.
RIP Peter Mayhew. To create a beloved character with warmth and humor is a testament to any actor’s spirit. To do it under a half ton of yak hair takes a true legend. ❤️❤️— Rian Johnson (@rianjohnson) May 3, 2019
I mean listen, if I’m going to eat fried chicken, it’s going to be Harold’s. If it’s not Harold’s, then it will be Popeye’s. But in this case, I’m going to give Rep. Steve Cohen a pass. (CBS News)
If you were skeptical of Joe Biden before, this should raise an eyebrow.
Joe Biden: "I actually like Dick Cheney… I get on with him. I think he's a decent man."— Emma Vigeland (@EmmaVigeland) May 2, 2019

Mondale then says his view of Cheney is "a little bit different." The crowd laughs pic.twitter.com/udjSlSCrZV

KCRinYYC found Juno Dawson’s The Gender Games: The Problem with Men and Women, from someone who has been both an excellent introduction to gender theory, though a bit broad in scope. "Having said that, however, her arguments are intelligent and engaging and the conversational tone in which she writes makes The Gender Games an interesting and accessible introduction to gender theory.
