    Must be, as I have no idea what dumba*** means. I would say it means dumbass, but there's an extra asterisk in there. Oh, wait, did you mean to add some sort of footnote? Like, dumbass*. *I am not sure how many letters are in this word. Or maybe you DID mean dumbasss and there's an implied...

    The gun did the same thing, just all at once. I got the gun and the scar. I have no idea how I got polio vaccine, though.

    For what it's worth (and I know it isn't much), my opinion of The Help is the same as it was when the book came out. I started reading it and had to stop. An article about the controversy over American Dirt, which gets into quite a bit of detail about both the book and the issues.

    I have to agree; it's not about being fair, it's about being fast. Checking citizenship and deciding who gets and who doesn't get takes a lot of time and even more money.

    My husband informed me today that the military base where he works has vaccine, that people who are required to travel within the next three months are top priority, and that he is on the list for the first shot, probably for next week. He also learned (or at least heard a rumor) that some...

    He's a known conspiracy theorist who thinks the world is about to collapse and this state of mind is aggravated by personal stress. That's how I read it

    Hmm, well, the story began with Aibilene, but Stockett realized early on that she was going to have a problem speaking as a black domestic, and thus Skeeter was born.

    Absolutely. But while tribute is certainly nice, money in your pocket is nicer. It's not that it was written by a white woman. It's that it is a book that is supposed to be about the experiences of black women who work as domestics that is told from the perspective of a heroic white woman by...
