  1. I’m curious to see how they kill Frank in the last season. I assume it will be in a plane/helicopter crash, or a terrorist attack, but it could be something different, and really worthy.

    I’m not a fan of the Outline as they’ve had some articles about trans issues(like one about de-transitioning without including people who use to id as trans woman, but leaned a bit on the terf-ish side too); however, I have been a fan of Joshua Toplosky since his days at Engadget and The Verge. He’s pretty good when it comes to net neutrality and interesting stories in tech.

  2. The Huffington Post article about LGBT figures in history textbooks was pretty interesting. After the books get published, I wonder if they’ll be used in states other than California. I hope so.

  3. The only thing unnatural about the family picture in bed is the way the one mama has her leg bent to prop the baby up. That’s some yoga voodoo. I would cramping up from my toes to my head if I attempted that.
