    I have mixed feelings about Gosling in Star Wars. I’ve been hoping he’ll start acting again.

    President Obama’s appointment of Caroline Kennedy to be our Ambassador to Japan is an excellent choice. The Kennedy family name and legacy are highly respected by most Japanese people. Her close association with the President shows the Japanese that he highly values our relationship with them. It is also a plus that she is our first female Ambassador to Japan.

    “It’s becoming tired but still, Bill Clinton’s ‘Blurred Lines’ is pretty great.”

    Could you please lay off the editorializing or at least do it a bit more lightly?

    Zac Ephron? Ryan Gosling? Hollywood really, really sucks. Has no one in that town stopped for one minute to think what made Star Wars the cultural phenomenon that it is? Jesus H. Christ…

    Ya know, every time I read one of these articles about phenomenal advances in science and medicine with stem cell therapies it makes my blood boil when I wonder how much further along we’d be if it weren’t for the 8 years of Moron Bush and his christianist BS campaign against that research.

    The petit Prince’s names have LGBT resonance: Prince George the Duke of Kent. one of E2R’s uncles, was well known to be bisexual, as was Alexander of Macedon. Louis Mountbatten was likely among us, too.

    Did anyone else get the wrong idea when they first saw the human “superorgan” headline?
