I'm so old I remember when Joe Biden invented gay marriage (but I can't remember if it was before or after Gavin Newsom invented gay marriage). Background on yestertoday's lovely Respect for Marriage Act signing! — NPR

I don't watch true crime documentaries because a) they're bad for you, making you think everyone's getting murdered all the time and that you're always in danger (and scared people are Republican people); b) I watched ONE true crime documentary and the next thing Netflix suggested was QAnon; and 3) it's pretty shocking to me just how one-sided a documentary can be, and you'll never even know what you don't know. So that's a no from me on the Casey Anthony series about how she is super innocent, and it's a no from Vox too, which is scathing.

Aperitivo hour? When I was pregnant, we just called it "snack." "Snack" was fruit and cheese and prosciutto and crackers and I would die if I didn't have snack. Also snack was at 3, not 6, because I would die if dinner was at 8. Then we imagined Six Year Old Donna Rose coming home from her first play date IN FURY that we had kept her from, I don't know, after-school lunchables. "SNACK IS BULLSHIT," we imagined her shouting. "ATTICA!" We weren't terribly far off. — The Mixer
