My Harpo Halloween costume

I’m not a big fan of Halloween as a holiday but did read this interesting article at the New York Times about Halloween costume correctness on campuses today.  California Institute of the Arts, the school I attended in the mid-8os was famous (or infamous) for their outrageous Halloween parties.  No costume correctness there; the biggest concern there was if the costume covered anything (paint seemed to be the choice of material).  This not being my style I decided on dressing up as Harpo Marx, complete with a curly wig, trench coat, and horn.  I loved this character- no talking, just blowing my horn as a response.

Finally. SCOTUS agrees to take on marriage equality

Thirty-six states and the District of Columbia have legalized same-sex marriages.  The Supreme Court on Friday agreed to hear cases from Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, and Tennessee over whether  same-sex marriages should be legal throughout the nation or if individual states have the right to determine that marriage should only be between a man and a woman.  It’s time for the question to be resolved.  It’s time for equality for all Americans.


Happy New Year- 2015

My Washington Post editor, Karen Attiah, put together a great year-end review of several animations, sketches and gifs.  Check it out here.
