Study: Half a million Brits only wash their sheets three times a year. "One in six people also owned up to waiting at least four weeks before washing their bed sheets. Londoners are the worst culprits with a quarter of those polled leaving it at least a month before washing their bed linen, the insurance firm survey found. Under-25s tended to have the dirtiest sheets, with one in 10 admitting to washing theirs only six times a year, and half of all people surveyed admitted to eating in bed."

Marc Jacobs partner Robert Duffy Tweets all: "Duffy (who has amassed 6,700 followers on the social networking site) has spilled the beans the past week about almost everything relating to Marc's highly anticipated show Monday, including pictures of some of the collection and the set, and specific instances of 'model drama.'

Judge Sylvia Pressler dies at 75: "In 1995, she extended the legal rights of gay couples in a ruling that allowed a woman to adopt her partner’s 3-year-old twins. 'They function together as a family,' Judge Pressler wrote of the two women, who had lived together for 14 years. 'The twins are, by reason of upbringing, daily lives and ties of mutual affection, the children of both Mary and Hannah, and no court order granting or denying the adoption will change that.'"

Straight, 23-year-old, soon-to-be-soldier speaks out in favor of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" repeal: "I know that the president doesn't want to upset the Pentagon, which is admirable, but I also know that every single person in the Pentagon has "President of the United States - The Honorable Barack Obama" at the very tip-top of their chain of command. So it seems to me that President Obama is the most important in the entire nation when it comes to setting policy for the military, and that includes the repeal or continuation of DADT. And unless he receives pressure from advocacy groups, he ain't gonna stick his neck out for you guys."

Variety on Tony Kushner's new play: "Opening night was postponed a week, with Kushner reportedly rewriting down to the wire, and early previews had pushed past the four-hour mark -- none of which necessarily presaged disaster but certainly fueled curiosity. The resulting three-act drama is a success -- sprawling, yearning, at times emotionally violent, it is also packed with a level of complexity, sophistication and understanding that distinguishes it as a potentially important new American work."
