Friday Five (asymmetrical justice edition)

The most Russian headline ever: “Pregnant Russion Woman Gives Birth in Forest While Officers Fight Off Bears”

The most Russian headline ever: “Pregnant Russion Woman Gives Birth in Forest While Officers Fight Off Bears”

It’s Friday! It’s the second Friday in December, which means when you read this (if all goes according to plan) I should be driving down to the small town where my mom lives to drop off presents and do some update work on Mom’s computer.

It’s been a weird week, and for the first time since I switched from the old format, I had a bit of a struggle trimming this week’s list of links to just five.

Welcome to my Friday Five: Only the top five (IMHO) stories of the week and five videos (plus notable obituaries and a recap of my posts).

Stories of the Week:

Now That Al Franken Is Gone, Democrats Need to Hold Hearings on Trump.

Former cop found guilty of second-degree murder in shooting of unarmed black man.

The Desirability of Storytellers – Among Filipino hunter-gatherers, storytelling is valued more than any other skill, and the best storytellers have the most children.

Gun-worshipping, anti-abortion, anti-gay rights state senator (& father of four homeschooled daughters) found in motel room with 17-year-old boy that he hired for sex while wearing misogynist “Make me a Sandwich” t-shirt with “Wives, submit to your husbands” scripture reference on it.

A New Swimming Dinosaur Was Like Velociraptor, But With a Swan’s Neck.

In Memoriam:

Ex-presidential candidate, congressman John Anderson dies.

Mitch Margo, Singer on The Tokens’ Hit ‘The Lion Sleeps Tonight,’ Dies at 70.

Things I wrote:

Some people are difficult to shop for, then there’s my mom.

Managing light.

Five years ago….

About fontfolly

I've loved reading for as long as I can remember. I write fantasy, science fiction, mystery, and nonfiction. I used to publish an anthropomorphic sci-fi/space opera literary fanzine. I attend and work on the staff for several anthropormorphics, anime, and science fiction conventions. I live near Seattle with my wonderful husband, still completely amazed that he puts up with me at all.
