The Comment Awards Are In A Summer Daze

Greetings cowgirls and cowbois! Today is a good day because it’s sunnier than ever in my town and I’m heading to a science museum right after work tonight. What the heck are you up to?

In this week’s examples of the government being the worst, we have the Supreme Court putting a stop on 35 foot buffer zones between abortion clinic protesters and patients and a Senate delay that’s threatening funding for thousands of untested rape kits. In better news, an Indiana judge threw out the state’s same-sex marriage ban and an arrest was finally made in the 2012 shooting and sexual assault of a young lesbian couple in Texas that left one dead.

All caught up on OITNBPLL and Orphan Black? Great, because now you have time to check out The Switch! You could also learn to program a thing or prepare berries in 25 delicious ways or make freezer paper stencil t-shirtsThe possibilities are endless.

  1. I hope that really was the real Larry, because it lends credence to my theory that the writers et. al. of OITNB are reading AS and taking our comments and suggestions into consideration!
