I was listening to Colorado Public Radio this morning and enjoyed a segment on a young woman who directed a short film called "Shade" about the connotations of being light-skinned or dark-skinned as an African American youth.
I was impressed with how confident she was on the radio so I went to CPR's website to find out more and realized I just saw this upcoming filmmaker graduate from high school two weekends ago; she was my niece's classmate and the Senior Class President!
I think this kid is going places!
It bothered Antreise Lacey to hear classmates define themselves by skin tone. In her short film, girls find their deeper identities.

I have small hands! I can make this steak!
Ok, my hands look normal in comparison and, also, I have my hair and my opinions under control. Still. I'm pretty sure I could make this steak...only...I have a personal hatred of fried steak. It grosses me out.

Thank you for introducing me to culture, Mr. Bowie, as well as to music, glam-ness, and being confident in having two different-coloured eyes.
The world is duller without you.

Threat to Americans’ privacy shoehorned into omnibus spending bill

Washington, D.C. – Late last night, House Speaker Paul Ryan released the text of an enormous omnibus spending bill, passage of which is required to avoid a government shutdown. Among the "riders" included in that bill entirely unrelated to government funding is highly controversial "cybersecurity" legislation opposed by the American Library Association (ALA) and virtually every other major national civil liberties and privacy protection organization from across the political spectrum.  

ALA President Sari Feldman issued the following comment:

“Librarians are again proud to stand with groups from every part of the political spectrum to expose and oppose the latest legislative attempt to advance a new mass surveillance law. Shoehorning a new version of ‘CISA’ hostile to personal privacy into a massive omnibus spending bill is troubling as a matter of substance and process. ALA calls on all Members of Congress to reject this latest assault on privacy and democracy.”

As negotiated in the back room and stealthily included in the omnibus, the bill would effectively create significant new mass surveillance capabilities for the NSA, FBI and many other agencies and levels of government while weakening government watchdogs charged with protecting Americans' personal information and privacy.

The foxen I saw on my drive to work this morning. I think she may have just come from having kits because she was awfully scrawny.
