Friday Links

“This is my doctrine: Give every other human being every right you claim for yourself.”
― Robert G. Ingersoll, The Liberty of Man, Woman and Child

Long week, major milestones hit on all my projects, good friends in town from abroad, good news. Happy Friday!

Drafting this up as I read and watch the outcome of the Supreme Court ruling that marriage is marriage, whichever the partners. The last paragraph of the ruling in particular is making the rounds with good reason. As has been quoted, the arc of the moral universe bends towards justice.

Beautiful images of a horrific practice.

The email gods have heard us.

Into the Gloss’ “Top Shelfie” posts are always great but this one is almost painfully fabulous.

In other beauty news, the tyranny of disaster films must end.

Might need this.

Well…drat

 

Pitcairn has a fascinating (and troubled) history. It has now passed a law (which I’m in favor of, by the way) for its 48 residents that applies to none of them.

In case you were wondering.

To the library!

I have demanded this before, and I demand it again: how do people misplace this stuff?!

  1. I spent two weeks covering a Royal Tour — and seeing the Queen’s jewels up close is quite gobsmacking, I can tell you. Emeralds the size of a baby’s fist and those diamond tiaras!

    Summer read — just read, and loved, Academy Street, a new prize-winning Irish novel.
