@17 you might be right but now there's a pile on (not saying it's unwarranted) and it seems that anti-vaxxers are digging in.

All this reminds me of the Romney stance about Americans: there are makers, and there are takers. (Parents of) Kids who don't get vaccinated are definitely the takers - though there are some who legitimately can't get vaccinated and we the common good bear the burden, as well we should in this instance.

I was all for shot shaming parents until I read this piece by a scientist who makes a slightly better argument:

"Now, I don’t claim to be some sort of sci-comm expert or anything, but I do know that this approach will not work. How do I know that? Because people are constantly going around telling me what to do, and I respond by go around never doing any of it. When I actually do do things, there’s a pattern...."

I used to know Robin Ochs from a common social setting. She kinda turned on what she may have thought was charm but ended up being kind of gross. All the time. And a couple friends felt the same way. We came up with a term for it: being Oched. I'm glad that she's actually been helpful to people.

@48 I have no idea. I defended RW a coupla times here at Slog. He was everything to me circa Mork and Mindy. And I loved a buncha movies he was in. Maybe what @49 said.

2 weeks ago I saw Robin Williams's house in Napa up for sale online somewhere, though now a quick search shows it's been for sale since 2012.

Such a beautiful property with a ton of interesting, personal features. It made me really sad to think about him selling it, for some reason. I hadn't thought much about him in years. Except to see the Slog slogging him on occasion. For the record, I will occasionally check out a celebrity's house for sale but I never feel badly. Even for Nicolas Cage.

Aug 9, 2014 sheiler commented on Rand Paul Had a Terrible Week, and That's Good News.
I was wondering why no one had brought up Breck Girl comments about Rand Paul, sorta like some dudes did with John Edwards, but then commenter said:
Paul's ridiculous perm/hairpiece alone is reason to deny him the Presidency.

And now it all makes sense. Is it a perm or a hairpiece?

Didn't butch writer Pat Califa also have a baby? But then again he since transitioned to a man. And he's not an illustrator.

@30 Ha! I had no idea and I must have heard that wretched song hundreds of times.

Have to admit when my bro was going through a 1960s music thing (he's younger than I am but feels he was born a decade late), I heard countless rotations of 'Scuse me while I kiss this guy. Wasn't until muuuuuch later that I learned it was Kiss the Sky.
