I haven’t read ‘Archie’ in decades but …

What the hell!!!


Archie dies??!!! (Via Mashable):

Archie Andrews will die taking a bullet for his gay best friend.

The famous freckle-faced comic book icon is meeting his demise in Wednesday’s installment of “Life with Archie” when he intervenes in an assassination attempt on Kevin Keller, Archie Comics’ first openly gay character. Andrews’ death, which was first announced in April, will mark the conclusion of the series that focuses on grown-up renditions of Andrews and his Riverdale pals.

Wait a minute, there are gay characters in “Archie.”

This is not the Archie I remember going up with. And he dies!!!

Millennials aren’t leaving the nest

There seems to be a debate on whether more young adults are remaining at home instead of heading out into the cold, cruel world. Hence, the need for a chart:


Of course, all trends are theories until you know someone who is personally affected. So let’s take a look, shall we?

I’m at home. I have a son. He’s 23. He is currently upstairs in his room.

Trend confirmed!

According to Vox:

The best evidence, in other words, is that the conventional wisdom is correct. Due to high unemployment and sluggish wage growth, lots of young people who aren’t in school don’t have very much money in their pockets. And yet even though young people have less money today, rents are higher and mortgage lending standards are tighter. Higher costs plus lower incomes = growing need to economize, so more people are living with their parents.

Not to mention, our old Kentucky home is so big, it makes sense for our son to be here, since the space he occupies is the equivalent of a studio apartment with its own kitchen and bathroom. I know this because my studio apartment in D.C. is smaller.

Like a girl …

After the Supreme Court ruling on whether women can control their bodies (the five old Catholic guys on the court say no), it’s time to think about the perception of women as weaklings who need a man to tell them what to do.

Which means it’s time to really reassess what people think when someone says, “You do that like a girl.”
