For 22 years, Dora Charles was the queen of the Deen kitchens. She helped open the Lady & Sons, the restaurant here that made Ms. Deen’s career. She developed recipes, trained other cooks and made sure everything down to the collard greens tasted right.
“If it’s a Southern dish,” Ms. Deen once said, “you better not put it out unless it passes this woman’s tongue.”
Paula Deen used people like Dora Charles to work for almost nothing, help make her rich and used racial slurs to keep them "in their place".
Isn't that the definition of slavery?

This is a hard one for me. I knew Jim Gandolfini. He worked for me as a bouncer at the RUsty Screw Tavern in Rutgers University in the early 80s. I was there from 1976-1987. He always said he wanted to be an actor. We all called him "Buck". I never knew why. At least he got to realize his dream.

Stapleton, who was 90, passed away of natural causes.
Having already established a career during the 1950s and early '60s for playing nosy neighbor roles in such Broadway smashes as Damn Yankees, Funny Girl and Bells Are Ringing, in which she played the owner of the titular answering service, Stapleton entered the TV pantheon with her high-pitched comic voice (which was a gross exaggeration of her own), perfect timing (especially when Edith would be slow to catch on to something) and unrelenting love for her husband Archie Bunker (even while overlooking his bigotry, which she never shared).

This is the kind of ignorance and intolerance Mutt Rimney stands for. He tells a gay Vietnam war veteran that he does not deserve the same rights as a non-gay veteran. What branch of the service did Romney serve in? Oh, that's right - NONE!

So why is 7-Eleven and its king-size “Big Gulp” drinks exempt from this ban? What's to stop them from selling two 16 ounce drinks at the same price as a 32 ounce?
I find this hard to swallow...

A computer technician discovers sexually explicit photographs of young girls on a priest's laptop, including one of a toddler with her diaper pulled away to expose her genitals.
When will the catholic church realize that priests remaining celibate and not allowed to marry combined with the ban on gay marriage is the cause of all this behavior?
