The incredible Eartha Kitt as the diabolical Catwoman.  Can we talk for a minute about how badass Earth Kitt was? Not only was Eartha Kitt responsible for the best portrayal of Catwomen to ever be put on film, but she stood up to the Johnson White House and gave zero fucks.  In 1968, Kitt was invited to a luncheon at the White House.  During the question and answer session, when asked about the Vietnam War, Kitt had this to say:
 
"The children of America are not rebelling for no reason. They are not hippies for no reason at all. We don’t have what we have on Sunset Blvd. for no reason. They are rebelling against something. There are so many things burning the people of this country, particularly mothers. They feel they are going to raise sons — and I know what it’s like, and you have children of your own, Mrs. Johnson — we raise children and send them to war."
 
Reportedly, Mrs. Johnson left the room in tears.  When asked about the incident later, Kitt still was not apologetic:
 
 
Sadly, Kitt’s career suffered a considerable setback because of her remarks.  Fuck yes Eartha Kitt.

That the mainstream media outrage over "The Interview" being cancelled seems to be more vociferous than the mainstream media outrage over years of gov't-sanctioned torture and the mainstream media outrage over the lack of justice in Mike Brown's and Eric Garner's cases seems to perfectly illustrate how fucked up this country is.

the central library in my city is closing permanently on the 23rd. oldest is pretty upset about this and i am none too pleased myself. she made me promise to bring her back this week with a camera and take more photos and let her say goodbye.

Oh geez, that's awful! Can you get library cards for another city or will Arlington just not have a library? - Jessie
we have loads of branches. supposedly they will build and open a new central library by 2017, but it's a bit like W saying we're going to the moon and then gutting NASA. the old library site will be a new commercial real estate development and will likely stand empty like the rest of our dead downtown area. - Big Joe Silence

Maria the realtor knocked on my door. I'd been expecting someone to bring me the eviction notice and have been gearing up for a legal fight. Instead she brought the new owner with a deal.
He said he wants to move into our unit. He said we can be here through January and he won't charge me rent. - Starmama
Maria said Tito won't be asking for any back rent from me either. I asked for everything in writing and she said she'll get a letter from Tito, and the new owner said he'll write me a letter, Maria said she'll get both to me ASAP. - Starmama
They knew they were WRONG. - Starmama
Maria came to her senses, realized I'm not the one to fuck with, and decided she didn't want none. - Starmama
That's good they decided to behave like adults. - Anika

Justice Scalia, Asshole of the Day for December 16, 2014
 
by TeaPartyCat (Follow @TeaPartyCat)
 
While Dick Cheney has been leading the way on defending the Bush administration’s torture program— both in redefining torture and explaining how he thinks 9/11 means that all treaties and prior norms no longer matter— someone thought to ask Justice Scalia about whether torture is constitutional.
 
Now you’d think the issue would be cut-and-dry. After all, the Constitution prohibits “cruel and unusual punishment”. But Scalia has this to say:
  
“We have laws against torture,” Scalia replied. “The Constitution says nothing whatever about torture. It speaks of punishment; ‘cruel and unusual’ punishments are forbidden.”
 
“So torture is forbidden, in that case?” the host asked. “If it’s imposed as a punishment, yes,” Scalia responded. “If you condemn someone who has committed a crime to be tortured, that would be unconstitutional.”
  
You’ll notice that Scalia is only talking about torture as punishment. So the interviewer asks about torture in interrogation, and Scalia is fine with that:
  
“We have never held that that’s contrary to the Constitution. And I don’t know what provision of the Constitution that would, that would contravene.
 
“Listen, I think it is very facile for people to say, ‘Oh, torture is terrible.’ You posit the situation where a person that you know for sure knows the location of a nuclear bomb that has been planted in Los Angeles and will kill millions of people. You think it’s an easy question? You think it’s clear that you cannot use extreme measures to get that information out of that person? I don’t think that’s so clear at all.
 
“And once again, it’s this sort of self-righteousness of European liberals who answer that question so readily and so easily. It’s not that easy a question.”
  
For Scalia then, torturing suspects is OK, but not if they are convicted of a crime. The fact that the suspect is considered, by the Constitution, to be innocent until proven guilty, doesn’t matter. Somehow I doubt that the Founding Fathers would agree. So, for saying that convicts have more rights than suspects, Justice Scalia is the Asshole of the Day.
 
It is Justice Scalia's fourth time as Asshole of the Day. Previous wins were for
 refusing to consider evidence of innocence because it might be more work for him saying the Supreme Court can’t overturn acts of Congress when it comes to gay rights, when he himself overturned Congress’ Voting Rights Act the day before saying the Constitution allows the government to favor religion over atheism

When I was back & forth to the hospital after Emily was born, I wrote a letter to Qld Health asking if they could move the main smoking area which was right near the main entrance & the entrance to the ER, ie almost impossible to avoid if you needed to go in to the hospital. They said they couldn't. This is much better. I know people will still flout the rules, but at least people don't have to run the gauntlet anymore. - Melly Claus
Smokers in this country are terrible about gumming up entrances/exits with their smoke, even when it's prohibited. I hope this helps, though. - Spidra Webster
