  1. SNL ran an old episode on May 20th that had Soundgarden as the musical guest before the normal broadcast.
  2. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/early-lead/wp/2017/05/03/cincinnati-tv-station-urges-fans-to-boycott-bengals-for-drafting-player-who-punched-a-woman/?utm_term=.1abdda10b021 Typically, television stations are reluctant to rip athletes, but Joe Mixon is no ordinary athlete and now a Cincinnati TV station is urging Bengals fans to boycott games because of his violent past. Cincinnati’s ABC affiliate says in a blistering editorial that, “this time, the Bengals have gone too far.” The city and team have stood by players like Adam Jones, who has had off-the-field issues, as well as Vontaze Burfict and the team after a nationally televised meltdown in a playoff game in January 2016. But taking Mixon, the talented Oklahoma running back who fell to the second round of the draft last week because of a 2014 incident in which he punched a woman, was a step too far. The optics were especially poor because of video of the incident and the NFL’s past crisis over domestic violence, beginning with the Ray Rice incident three years ago. The lesson of domestic violence is one that has been lost on the Bengals, the station says in an editorial that carries a WCPO editorial board byline. The post reads, in part: A man hitting a woman is not OK. Drafting Mixon says the Bengals think it is. The Bengals can’t control how a player acts. But they can control how the organization handles incidents like Adam Jones’ arrest. The team can control the types of players it signs, drafts and trades for. Apparently, Mike Brown, Marvin Lewis and the Bengals management think winning is all that matters. Apparently, those franchise leaders don’t care about potentially alienating the team’s female fans. It’s time we as fans tried to teach this team a lesson. We say tried because at this point, we have to wonder if the leaders of this team will EVER get it. Maybe the only way is through the Bengals’ pocketbook. We are urging every Bengals fan to take drastic action. Instead of buying a Bengals ticket this year, take the $50 or more you would have spent on that ticket and donate the money to a nonprofit that works to prevent violence against women. We have included a list of organizations below. Enough is enough, Bengals. We can excuse another season without winning a playoff game. We can’t excuse drafting another player like Joe Mixon.
  3. Oh, don't forget how they made up DC street names! That is always comical to me. If my dad was watching this show, he would probably trash it to bits for the SCIF stuff, alone.
  4. Release date was announced yesterday: http://www.starwars.com/news/star-wars-episode-ix-and-next-indiana-jones-get-release-dates Star Wars: Episode IX is now set for release on May 24, 2019. Directed by Colin Trevorrow, the film will close out the third Star Wars trilogy.
  5. LOL!! Exactly.
  6. Cell phone batteries never die and always have a perfect signal! Jamie is right, I have watched this show from day 1, and there was too much unrealistic things in this edition. The ratings were not good (under 4 million watched per episode, except for the premiere, which was after the Super Bowl). I thought some of the actors worked, but time jumps annoy me because there is too much that can be left out.
  7. https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2017/04/19/students-who-attend-college-full-time-even-one-semester-are-more-likely-graduate?platform=hootsuite A growing body of research shows that college students who enroll full-time, taking even 12 credits’ worth of course work in a single semester, are much more likely stick with college, save money and eventually graduate. Yet while the researchers behind these studies encourage efforts to nudge more students to go full-time (ideally taking 30 credits in a year), they warn against neglecting the many who will continue to attend part-time because of work and family demands -- currently only 38 percent of community college students are enrolled full-time, according to the American Association of Community Colleges. In addition, they said colleges and policy makers should avoid full-time enrollment incentives that veer toward the punitive. Some critics have made that charge about the 30-credit provision in New York State’s new free-college plan, which means students will be on the hook to pay back the tuition costs of their second semester if they fall even a credit short in a year.

Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) stopped by the “Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” on Tuesday to plug her new book, but she also shared a few pointers on how Democrats should approach the next few years — including a Pixar-inspired analogy. “We cannot shoot at everything that moves,” she told Fallon. “Remember in the movie ‘Up,’ the dog, when he yells, ‘Squirrel!’? We cannot all go over there.” She added: “We got to keep a focus not on what says, what he tweets. We got to keep the focus on what he actually does.” But to Warren, Trump’s nearly 100 days in office “feels like dog years, he’s been there forever.”
