Greetings and Happy Friday, everyone. We’ve got a little bit about the 2016 U.S. elections, a talented student, plus the usual bits of entertainment news. Let’s get started:
Lady Reads is a bit heavy on the pop culture this week, but that’s just because so much cool news came out! But don’t worry, we’ve got dick jokes and FEELS too!
After covering what’s going on in Ferguson and the #BlackLivesMatter movement, let’s get to other news stories of note this week.
Happy Friday, one and all. I am looking forward to the weekend because my birthday is on Sunday, but yes, yes, let’s get to the actual news. Lots to cover, so let’s get started:
Okay, even though the U.S. midterm elections gave the Republicans a congressional majority again, let us console ourselves with how this will make it easier for the Democrats to come back in 2016. We hope, anyway. Let’s get to this and more in this week’s newsy updates.

After her barrage of campaign ads, we would then get her “surveys” in the mail asking what our “concerns” were, all with […]
Greetings, Persephoneers! After our winter break and my vacation, we are back with some Friday News Bites, and this time, they’re mostly of the LGBT variety. First though, let’s have two fantastic best friends wish us a Happy New Year…
