What do you get when you take architects and gingerbread? Why a candy Venice of course. Lovely story by @sososophia16  -- and take a look at the result!

Coming up the wonderful @KristenBell  on real life vs Disney fantasy and how the two can influence each other.

From the mailbox regarding a Muppets song: "I sure I speak for a lot of people who have never heard it, have no interest in hearing it and probably a substantial portion of this group who have not seen, heard or have any interest in Sesame Street. "

This is a very strange press conference on the attack in Pensacola.

Stunning. The new Pentagon papers describe ‘ explicit and sustained efforts by the U.S. government to deliberately mislead the public...to distort statistics to make it appear the United States was winning the war when that was not the case.’

Can we talk about the insane prices for dog medication and preventative medicine?

Almost ALL of those killed in #ElPasoShooting  were #Latinos . And yet I see no mention of this in headlines or in chyrons. The largest minority in this county was targeted. Why are the headlines about Trump?

That man and his tiny daughter who drowned...this is what they looked like alive. Her name was Valeria. His was Oscar. You can read their story here --->

I wrote this feeling a great deal of anger and shame at my industry. ‘The media failed Latinos in America during what was perhaps our darkest hour in my lifetime. ‘

Yesterday, the 7 year old daughter of a friend of mine was almost kidnapped in DC outside her home. The woman came up behind her, grabbed her & told her that she had cotton candy for her & and tried to get her into her car & then she chased her. This is her picture.

At this point should they let in the United Nations or Save The Children or another NGO to help? I’ve only seen this kind of treatment of refugees in war zones.

The oldest person in the world has died. She was born in 1900. Think of the history she saw, the wars and then prosperity. The transformation and promise of technology. Then the current peril of our planet. What an extraordinary time to have been alive.

Written by #AnthonyBourdain  in 2014 ‘Some like to claim that Mexicans are “stealing American jobs”. But in two decades as a chef and employer, I never had ONE American kid walk in my door and apply for a dishwashing job, a porter’s position or even a job as a prep cook’

When we talk about the mainstreaming of White Supremacy, we only have to look to the actions of Facebook in its selection of far right sites for its News Tab. As a POC, and as a journalist with the fact based media I find it extraordinary
