Congratulations to Kate Winslet, who just won an Emmy. She’s a wonderful film actress, and there are so many movie stars doing TV now that TV stars have been forced into providing voices for video games. And those very same video games are then turned into movies, starring the very people who put the TV stars out of work in the first place. Hakuna matata, my friends. Circle of life.

JANE LYNCH, on the Emmys.

You know, a lot of people are curious why I’m a lesbian. Ladies and gentlemen, the cast of ‘Entourage.’

Though Borders continues to close its doors at hundreds of stores around the country, some have already begun to leave a legacy.The Borders bookstore in Chicago locked up for good last week, but made one large donation first. According tothis article by Huffington Post, the company hired to liquidate the stores, Hilco Trading LLC, donated 8000 books — worth about $130,000 — to Chicago schools.The Hilco CEO Jeffrey Hecktman says making the donation was an easy decision.

We believe that education, above all other factors, is the foundation of commercial success and so we have decided to do what we can to help ensure American children receive the best education possible. The book donation was only our first step in a continuing commitment to align our corporate resources with the needs of public education.

Included in the donation are books about history, science, math, poetry, business, politics, and travel.I hope that as more stores close, books are donated nationwide. They may as well make the best of Borders’ dying resources.

Bangladesh is one of the world’s childhood malnutrition hotspots; UNICEF estimates that 48 percent of all Bengali children under five years old are malnourished. In the Starved for Attention film, “Terrifying Normalcy,” Ron Haviv captures the resignation with which Bhola’s malnourished mothers and children accept a chronically meager food supply.

This is one of 195 million stories of malnutrition. Sign the petition to help us rewrite the story.
