Happy Friday, unicorns! Let’s see you into the weekend with some science, entertainment news, and more.
Happy Friday, everyone. You can’t see it right now, but I’m making very disappointed faces in Brian Williams’ direction. Let’s get started with that and other news stories that caught my eye this week.
About all I can say about this week is that it wasn’t quite as awful as last week. The French Open seems to be bringing out the worst in people, politicians continue to be idiots, and dress codes continue to be absurd. But at least we’re getting some cool LEGOs!

Happy Friday, everyone. Bit of a short roundup this week because I am currently on a whirlwind NW book tour/vacation and am poaching some Wi-Fi. I mean… I’m nicely borrowing it for a few minutes. So let’s get right to it.
Because I love you all! (You’ll have to read on to find out what I’m talking about.) Unfortunately, I don’t love most of the news I have to bring you this week. But there is a bit more good stuff than usual! Silver lining. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)

It’s been an abortion-palooza across America! Let’s take this one shitty state at a time. (Trigger warning for discussions of abortion, rape, and incest.)
