Jennifer Lawrence Will Not Stay Silent.

“I’m over trying to find the ‘adorable’ way to state my opinion and still be likable. F**k that. I don’t think I’ve ever worked for a man in charge who spent time contemplating what angle he should use to have his voice heard. It’s just heard.”
-Oscar® – winning actress Jennifer Lawrence, writing in Lena Dunham’s and Jenni Konner’s “Lenny Letter” about the discrepancies in pay between male actors and female actors and the chance that railing against this would have her branded “difficult”.  As quoted in the 125th anniversary (September 2017) issue of American Vogue; article on Lawrence available online right now:http://www.vogue.com/article/jennifer-lawrence-vogue-september-issue-2017-cover

How does the world see the US?

Good question.  Suzy Hansen left for Istanbul at the age of 30 – and discovered we Americans need to drop our “greatest on earth” tag and start seeing our nation through other nations’ eyes.

 

“I was conscious that if I had long ago succumbed to the pathology of American nationalism, I wouldn’t know it – even if I understood the history of injustice in America, even if I was furious about the invasion of Iraq. I was a white American. I still had this fundamental faith in my country in a way that suddenly, in comparison to the Turks, made me feel immature and naive.”

“I will not take a victory lap because doing so won’t bring back the trees so haphazardly destroyed.”

 

  • (Reported in Crain’s New York Business 7/24/2017) Staten Island Borough President James Oddo was stating his reaction to a court’s upholding his right to give names of his choosing to streets surrounding a property that had previously belonged to Jesuits and was, to Oddo’s chagrin,  converted into condos. His names were Avidita Place, Fourberie Lane and Cupidity Drive.  For the meanings of those names and more of the story, go to: https://ny.curbed.com/2016/2/15/11028810/how-a-staten-island-developer-got-stuck-with-condos-on-deceit-lane
