Revisiting ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’

This is something to look forward to. (From The Loop)

It’s no secret that we’re beyond buzzed about the upcoming 10-part series The Handmaid’s Tale. The story, which is based on the 1985 novel by Canadian treasure Margaret Atwood, has been one of our favourites since we read it in school.

But what’s even more exciting is that, after roughly three decades, Margaret Atwood may actually be headed back to her fictional world of Gilead in order to write a sequel. And we really, really hope that happens.

This is exciting. I’m listening to the audiobook now and read the book a couple of years ago. It seems so appropriate.

Pussy grabber supports sexual harasser

From the “failing” New York Times:

Mr. Trump also criticized media outlets, including The New York Times, for failing to adequately cover the Rice controversy — while singling out Fox News and the host Bill O’Reilly for praise, despite a Times report of several women who have accused Mr. O’Reilly of harassment. The president then went on to defend Mr. O’Reilly, who has hosted him frequently over the years.

“I think he’s a person I know well — he is a good person,” said Mr. Trump, who during the interview was surrounded at his desk by a half-dozen of his highest-ranking aides, including the economic adviser Gary Cohn and the chief of staff, Reince Priebus, along with Vice President Mike Pence.

“I think he shouldn’t have settled; personally I think he shouldn’t have settled,” said Mr. Trump. “Because you should have taken it all the way. I don’t think Bill did anything wrong.”

Well, five women have 13 million items that prove Bilge O did something wrong.
