Love this analogy
I've been thinking of a way to explain to straight white men how life works for them, without invoking the dreaded word “privilege,” to which they react like vampires being fed a garlic tart at high noon. It's not that the word “privilege” is incorrect, it's that it's not their word.

Made me cringe and laught
Sure, the hit Broadway musical Hamilton has many devoted fans, but maybe none quite as passionate as “Betsy Ross” writer and Inside Amy Schumer...

Commentary by pop culture happy hour regular Gene Demby
The hit musical recasts the Founding Fathers as people of color engaged in rap battles. But on a recent night, ticket buyers largely looked the way Broadway audiences have always looked. What gives?

A great article answering the topic of burn out and the importance of easy/recovery work outs.
"One of the biggest reasons people don’t train day after day is because they are tired. But they are usually tired from going too hard. I like to think that if you can keep the training reasonable, in terms of effort, you’ll be more successful in getting out the door more frequently and this will lead to less burnout syndrome. One of the most important aspects of training that I apply to beginner age groupers, to elite age groupers, to pro’s that I coach is the concept of hard day, easy day. Every athlete, at every level needs a break from training either in a recovery-type day or a complete day off. The recovery days help stimulate improvement from the hard days. Training super hard and resting for days on end will only get you so far, but I’m a strong believer in easy long swims, and easy bike rides on recovery days. You can’t go wrong with either of those.

To follow up on the point of the rest day, in my opinion, you should take rest days. These will leave you rejuvenated each week and allow you to look forward to your ‘rest’ days. These are important as well – as your body needs a break from the training, as well as your mind does too.

Even when you are training at the right intensity, every couple of weeks, your body will need a ‘rest’ or ‘recovery’ week."

Thanks, Babe!  A very good read, and something I'll be trying to keep in mind.

There's too much hype in the world. But Joe Posnanski and Michael Schur explain why Game 5 of Rangers-Blue Jays was a game NOBODY HAS EVER SEEN BEFORE.

Gary, tell me you have read this article that analysis Civil War with Hamilton as supporting evidence?
Captain America: Civil War drops some of the politics of the comics on which it's based, but it tells a different, equally current political story.

I think Romney is pulling an Alexander Hamilton here. Maybe Trump will shoot him in a duel. Actually, I think I've been listening to Hamilton the Musical too much.
Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney delivered a scorching indictment of Donald Trump on Thursday.

There's no such thing!

We talk about the new Star Wars film (because of course we do), as well as about tie-in toys and merchandise. Plus: a bonus review with a little more meat on the bones.

Temple Akiba is a reform Jewish synagogue in Culver City. Rabbi Zach Shapiro and Cantor Lonee Frailich are wonderful. It is a great place for families. They have a preschool, religious school and programs for older kids too. They just finished a remodeling project so the facilities are more modern.

Our family has been going to Dr. Brown for years. Dr. Brown is friendly and professional. He is great with my kids and really puts the children at ease. His staff is courteous and helpful. It is a small, old fashion office and the people make you feel at home.

On of the smaller LA Fitness gyms with a couple dozen treadmills and elliptical machines. Towels are provided if you ask at the front desk. It has a selection of weight machines and free weights, but lacks a squat rack. It has a separate cycling/spin class room an a yoga/aerobics class room. There is no pool.

I"ve been getting my hair cut here for years. Aaron is always a gentleman and his staff are great. I get my hair cut just the way I like. Sometimes it can be hard to get a time and date I want so I usually try to make an appointment a couple weeks in advance. You can also make appointments online.

I've been very happy with Queen Bee and been going for over 3 years. I love my girl Claudia. She has excellent experience and the right touch with waxing. I always feel great coming out of her room all clean and groomed. Parking is tight but I like how they text you or call to confirm your appointment.
