    I’m disappointed that you haven’t posted anything regarding the Muslim ban or Bannon’s new post, especially considering the political tone your blog has taken in the past.

    The Ordinary People link is lovely.

      Agreed, thank you for that! And thank you for posting non-political content too. I fear for my sanity with all the articles and postings I take in on a daily basis.

    Thanks for the Ordinary People link. I always have been, always will be astounded that Moore didn’t win an Oscar for her performance in that film. It’s also a shame that Sutherland wasn’t nominated. That movie is devastating.

    Awesome article in today’s The Cut.

    I hated Ordinary People when it was first released. It is an excellent movie, but Mary Tyler Moor’s character reminded me too much of my mother. Now, with some distance and years, it still makes me uncomfortable to watch, but I have a greater understanding of the character and her nuances.

    What a great piece on the gut-wrencher “Ordinary People.” Moore was so good in that. Casting against type can yield such great rewards.
