Morning Coffee (3/10/11)Morning Coffee
Welcome to Thursday. The end of the week is in sight!
Tonight's TV Picks: Bones, Fairly Legal, The Mentalist
I didn't entirely follow what was going on in Wisconsin last night - I was out with friends and then came home and went to bed - but here's a primer from Ezra Klein.
I know this is more serious than I usually go for here, but it's important: This article about the gang rape of an 11-year-old is possibly the worst thing I've ever seen in the Times: They chose to use no quotes expressing any concern or sympathy for the victim. Instead, they quoted someone saying "These boys have to live with this the rest of their lives." REALLY? Also, they blame the victim for dressing older than her age and her mother for not supervising her, but say that the perpetrators were just "drawn into" the situation. This is disgusting.
Okay, there's no possible segue here, so we're just going to move on to hot guys and vampires:
Colin Firth is going to play a vampire. Please celebrate or mourn as you see fit.
The Twitter prank war between Jeff Eastin and Shawn Ryan is getting pretty entertaining.
The Royal Mail has awesome wizard stamps. I am jealous.Posted by Kat at March 10, 2011 06:59 AM
