Vanessa and Don Trump Jr. Are Officially Getting a Divorce, and We Have a Lot of Conflicting Feelings
Today Mueller subpoenaed the Trump Organization. What does this mean? Probably that he’s looking into the money trail. Which is where the incriminating evidence is. Lawd, I hope he gets Al Caponed. (NYTimes)
So Matt Damon said he’s considering moving his family to Australia because of Trump. But can he grow potatoes there? (Dlisted)
Vanessa Trump filed for divorce from her husband, Don Jr., today. We are conflicted. Sam Stein over on Huffpo took issue with people on Twitter celebrating this with glee, and we get that. On the other hand, given that Trump Jr. and his wife have advocated the forcible removal of thousands of families, breaking them up in the process, we hope it’s a miserable divorce. On the other hand, if they more miserable together, this might make them happier, and no one wants that. Still, they have children, and that is sad. But then again, maybe less time with Don Jr. is better for the children. We don’t know. Mixed emotions! (Page 6)
We are, however, kind of leaning this way:
Donald Trump. Jr. shoots elephants and leopards for fun and said women have to 'deal with sexual harassment in the workplace or stay home.'— beth can't with this (@bourgeoisalien) March 15, 2018

Here’s a couple of interesting addendums. Vanessa is divorcing him, in part, because of his tweets.

And here’s the oh-so romantic story of how they met.
I find myself to be very invested in the well-being of Michael Jackson’s kids. Paris Jackson seems like she’s doing OK. And if any of you can give me pointers on how I can achieve her thick cat eyeliner, I’ll take them. She looks gorgeous. (Lainey Gossip)
An IHOP waitress in Maine asked a group of black teens to prepay for their meal. First LePage and now this? What is with you, Maine? (CNN)
Astronaut Scott Kelly has an identical twin brother, which provided scientists a great opportunity to study the changes between the two whilst Scott was in space. What’s an example of a change they were able to observe, I hear you asking. Well, they’re no longer identical twins! (Mental Floss)
If you think that a rancher wouldn’t be able to arrange his cows to spell out a message for the dummy riding in the Tesla launched into space, you’d be wrong. (Motherboard)
When I was younger I was obsessed with the idea of a perm (a million thank-yous to my mum who wouldn’t allow it). I wanted perfect ringlets. Olivia Munn just got a perm and it’s…fine? It’s more like beachy waves. Which is nice! But that takes like 5 minutes with a curling iron to achieve, so…*shrug* (Celebitchy)
Fug Madness: Rita Ora vs. Tracee Ellis Ross. Tough choice. (GFY)
France has a Secret Society of Woodworkers, so that’s a whole thing right there. They make beautiful tiny staircases. (Atlas Obscura)
Burt Reynolds said that he fell in love with Sally Field when he was seven years old. That’s an odd comment to make. Right? (The Cut)
One proposed facet of Donald Trump’s plan to deal with the opioid crisis is to charge the drug dealers with the death penalty. (The Root)
Stephen Hawking had lovely advice to people suffering from depression: “Things can get out of a black hole both on the outside and possibly to another universe. So if you feel you are in a black hole, don’t give up - there’s a way out.” (IFLScience)
Have you used Blue Apron? They’re going to start selling their meal kits in grocery stores, which sort of defeats the purpose of their shtick, no? (Eater)
Starz announced that it will adapt The Constant Princess and The King’s Curse books by Philippa Gregory into a show titled The Spanish Princess. Yay for costume porn! (T&C)
In Catch-22, Yossarian doesn’t want to fly any more bombing missions but can only be grounded if he’s crazy; but asking to be grounded because he’s crazy proves he is sane enough to fly. Tracy started Joseph Heller’s classic WW2 satire in high school, but never finished it. She’s given it another try and found it entertaining, if a bit repetitive. Have you read this classic, or watched the movie adaptation? (Cannonball Read 10)
