Late Evening Open Thread: Something Funny

Good Evening Y’all

Thought we could use a little laugh tonight.

And so we will have a bit of Broadway….with a smile.

The first clip is in this post because what is there not to like about Robin Williams paying homage to some of the greatest choreographers…evah!

Okay, so this next one isn’t “technically” on Broadway…but damn…what a man about talent…

Alright, what is a trip down Broadway with a nod to the Producers…

This is an open thread!

    As a credentialed member of the Buddhist clergy in the Vajrayana (Himalayan)tradition, I signed this letter tonight to ask Governor Jindal to not raise sales taxes since it hurt the poorest among us. You’ll notice the large number of clergy from around the state that signed the letter.

    • That is a good thing Kat, you want to know what I did tonight? I played “whose dead” with my family while we ate dinner.

      It’s amazing how some “religious” politicians manage to ignore their very own religious tenets of helping the poor. Good to see clergy speak up on this.

    JJ, you have a fine evening also. Thanks for starting a new post. There’s only so much time I can spend on outrage without getting drained. Much better to have more time for practice of what brings me resilience and energy.

    This is encouraging! A nonprofit group offers a program to help girls in India (also China and Africa):

    The project, underwritten by the Nike Foundation and a private donor, is part of a new girls’ empowerment program run by the Indian government. In 299 villages in far northeast India, Landesa’s program has taught roughly 7,800 girls how to garden in hopes of increasing their economic value to their families.

    The idea is that if they are considered assets rather than extra mouths to feed, the girls might complete their educations and break out of the poverty cycle. Even if they do not, they will know how to grow food on even small plots of land, improving their nutrition and that of their future children.

    The gardening skills also come with extensive lessons in women’s rights, which Landesa hopes will encourage girls to fight back against child marriage, as well as rape, prostitution and other forms of abuse.
