Boehner baby

This is from Crooks & Liars:

After John Boehner cried yet again, this time for a Congressional Gold Medal ceremony to honor the 19th century Italian artist Constantino Brumidi (I have no idea who he is, and probably Boehner didn't either) who came to the United States to seek fame and fortune, Jimmy Kimmel decides to poke more fun at Mr Waterworks.

Nora Ephron - RIP

Nora Ephron died on June 26 at age 71.  She brought so much drama and light and humor into our lives through her movies.  She had the "touch," and knew how to push our buttons.  She died too young.

One of her most famous scenes follows:  the faux orgasm scene from "When Harry Met Sally."  In a crowded diner, Meg Ryan as "Sally" lets Billy Crystal's "Harry" know loud and clear he really doesn't know as much about women as he thought he does.

An excellent article in tribute to Ms. Ephron is here.
