RoadSteven Soderbergh retires from film: "The worst development in film-making – particularly in the last five years – is how badly directors are treated," Soderbergh told New York magazine. "It's become absolutely horrible the way the people with the money decide they can fart in the kitchen, to put it bluntly. It's not just studios – it's who is financing a film. I guess I don't understand the assumption that the director is presumptively wrong about what the audience wants or needs when they are the first audience, in a way. And probably got into making movies because of being in that audience."

The issue is trending hard against the GOP’s historical opposition, and they want the thing off the table before it starts to hurt them."

    and i feel for that mother in the top story. here's hoping the outpouring of support gives her son the sense of confidence and hope he's not getting at school, and that the school bullies are called out and punished.

  4. Streisand at the Oscars. Well, I'll have to hold off drinking until atleast 9:00pm so that I can stay up for her appearance. But it's on a Sunday night--well, that's impossible for me to do.

    You know, both Streisand and Bette Midler came here to Philly (I think it was 3 years ago) for the opening of the Jewish-American Museum. It was a wonderful sight seeing them together, but I couldn't copy any of the damn photographs off the Internet. How'd they do that?

  5. I don't have much of an opinion about Beckham, but Lukas Podolski has the nicest smile in football and Jack Wilshire is adorable.

  6. Hillary used to say that she would never run again. Now she says she isn't thinking about that right now. I'd say she's moving in the right direction.

  7. It's amazing to see how many teams and players will be taking part at the 2015 Gay World Series. I played in the first ever league in the country in the early 70s. The San Francisco Gay Community Softball League and remember the first Gay World Series in 1977 had only 2 entries from N.Y. and S.F.! However, the following year There were entries from 5 cities including one from Toronto,but it was cloaked in controversy when the team I played on,The S.F. Oil Can Harry's was kicked OUT for having too many non-gays on the roster. Mayor George Moscone gave us a City Proclamation for our diversity that he felt truly represented San Francisco's diversity. We were so far ahead of other leagues that put a quota system in place. The Oiler's had Vietnam Vets,City Firemen,teachers and even a Doctor at a time gays were fighting Anita Bryant and the Brigg's initiative that would of banned gay teacher's statewide. Our game drew big mixed crowds,as many as 8,000 for the annual Police/Gay charity game. And just a few years ago,a team from Seattle was kicked OUT for the same reason. I always felt the Oiler's truly represented great sportsmanship on and off the field.
