Ha ha. YES’
I neither confirm nor deny looking up visa / immigration laws in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand for just such an occasion.
TIME: “Do you consider yourself a feminist?”
Shailene Woodley: ”No because I love men, and I think the idea of ‘raise women to power, take the men away from the power’ is never going to work out because you need balance.”
I always had my misgivings about her, but between “I make my own medicines, I don’t get those from doctors” and this, that’s a big ol’ NOOOOOPE from me.
Also, Willa Holland was a much better Kaitlin Cooper.
Since Shailene’s not a feminist, then I guess it’s OK for me to say: Oh, honey. You’re not real bright, are you?

Baseball Great Hank Aaron Flooded With Racist Hate Mail After Defending Obama -
The Atlanta Braves have been deluged with hate mail after baseball great Hank Aaron’s recent comments about racism in America and President Obama’s critics.
According to USA Today, the Braves organization has received hundreds of letters, emails and phone calls since Aaron made his comments a week ago.
"Hank Aaron is a scumbag piece of (expletive) (racial slur)” read an email from a man named Edward, according to USA Today.
Edward evidently used the racist epithet five times.
"My old man instilled in my mind from a young age, the only good (racial slur) is a dead (racial slur)," he wrote in closing.
One man called Aaron a “racist scumbag,” while another vowed to never attend another Braves game until Aaron is fired from the team’s front office. A man named David said he plans to burn Aaron’s autobiography.
The outrage stems from an interview Aaron gave to USA Today last week, 40 years after he broke Babe Ruth’s career home run record.
Aaron said he still has the racist, threatening letters he received as he closed in on Ruth’s milestone to serve as a “reminder” that things aren’t too different from when he pursued the record.
"If you think that, you are fooling yourself," Aaron said last week. "A lot of things have happened in this country, but we have so far to go. There’s not a whole lot that has changed."
When he shifted his attention to Obama, Aaron seemed to compare Republicans to the KKK.
"We can talk about baseball. Talk about politics. Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated," Aaron said.
He added, “We have moved in the right direction, and there have been improvements, but we still have a long ways to go in the country. The bigger difference is that back then they had hoods. Now they have neckties and starched shirts.”
Henry Aaron has received better hate mail than that weak sauce, Edward.
Now please kill yourself, you’re a boil on the ass of humanity who must be lanced.
I’d be willing to bet there’s not a whole lot of daylight between this hate mail and the stuff Hank got back in ‘73 as he closed in on Babe Ruth’s home-run record.
So please tell me more, America, about how Obama’s election means we’ve conquered racism in this country and black people no longer have anything to complain about.
"True Detective" quotes mashed up with "Family Circus" comics. Awesome.
