Doctors across the country who do similar work have been harassed. The Justice Department charged a Texas man this month with threatening a Boston doctor; it also recently charged at least twoothers with threatening anti-gay or anti-transgender attacks.

Twelve times as many anti-L.G.B.T.Q. incidents have been documented this year as in 2020, according to the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project, which tracks political violence.

Yes, Catch Me If You Can is also a Christmas movie. Of course, I consider The Secret of My Success a Christmas movie because I watched it on Christmas Eve 1989. Good times. (Vulture)

A film you’ve never seen has just replaced Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo as the British Film Institute's "greatest film of all time." I don't like "greatest" lists, anyway. Vertigo remains one of my personal favorites and the film that made me love San Francisco. (San Francisco Chronicle)

"Frosty the Snowman" is a weird song.
