OK, I didn't read what everyone else said, but for LW1: When I had my IUD implanted several years ago I had chronic yeast infections for months. I tried a bunch of things, but what finally worked for me was vinegar baths. Just pour some vinegar (apple cider is best, but plain white works too) in a tub with a couple inches of warm water, and sit in it for 10 minutes or so. I had immediate relief and after a few times the infections went away and didn't come back. Good luck - yeast infections suck.

Oh honey, Dan is so right. Take his advice : apply to school, focus on working on your own story as a disabled queer kid from Mississippi. There is an audience for you - a broader, more appreciative audience than you would have in porn. There's nothing wrong with porn, and you can always do it when you're a bit older if you still want to. But you could really make a difference in the lives of the kids who come after you, if you focus on your other stuff. Best of luck to you, you sound like a lovely young man.

I love this non-review. The film doesn't accurately represent the events it purports to, and that is a perfectly reasonable thing for a reviewer to explore.

Maybe there is no movie. Maybe they will just play Rich Astley videos over and over for two hours.
Jun 5, 2015 Leoba commented on This Week In Music Memoriam: Jean Ritchie and Richard Treece.
Jean Ritchie wrote a lovely memoir, "Singing Family of the Cumberlands," all about her childhood and including music and lyrics of many songs she sang growing up. I got a copy when I was a teenager, even managed to get it signed at a choir convention. I read it every couple of years and as soon as my son is old enough I'll read it to him too. It is a great book. Sad to hear of her death.

I'm a medievalist, and all the other medievalists in my network are trying to figure out who wrote this letter (seriously, there aren't *that* many of us). He/she/they are a hero!

I have an exceedingly friendly 5-year old. We live in Philadelphia and commute on the public transit every day. He will talk to just about anyone. It's a joy, most of the time. The thought of family members organizing a kidnapping for a kid like that to prove some kind of point... just makes my heart hurt. I hope that boy has some adults he can trust, and I hope the people who did that to him rot in jail.
