Duke Mason interviews former first daughter Patti Davis, who has an interesting perspective on her dad Ronald Reagan's reputation as the man who let AIDS run amok:

... I'm not gonna make excuses for, um, the failure of his administration to address the AIDS crisis when it was going on—I mean, it was a failure ... It hurts my heart that that, that that  happened, on so many levels. One of my father's flaws was that he delegated authority to other people, and relied on them to, uh, give him the appropriate information on things ...presidents get briefings every morning, um, they're busy, so their time watching CNN is, uh, is limited, so they do rely on people to bring them information on what was going on, and there were people around him who did not want him dealing with the AIDS crisis, and I'm not making excuses for him, I'm saying that's a flaw of his, and in this case it turned out to be a really tragic flaw.

She goes on to say he only knew what was going on once Rock Hudson died, and only then because Hudson was a friend of his.

She says her father would not have supported Donald Trump's rhetoric, and also takes time to promote her new book, The Earth Breaks in Colors.

Terry Wogan, One Of England's Most Popular TV Hosts, Has Died @ 77 Comments (0)

Terry Wogan, whom many Madonna fans remember for his classic Truth or Dare-era sit-down with the Queen of Pop, has died at 77.

In a statement, his family said:

Sir Terry Wogan died today after a short but brave battle with cancer. He passed away surrounded by his family. While we understand he will be missed by many, the family ask that their privacy is respected at this time.

Wogan was a philanthropist whose involvement in the BBC Children in Need cause went back decades. He had unexpectedly pulled out of the latest one due to his failing health.

SAG Taps LGBT-Themed Winners Comments (0)

Full list of SAG Awards winners right here.

I thought the show was great, and felt right, as always. However the SAG membership works its voting is superior to the Oscars, and has the benefit of not coming dead-last in the season so as not to be overly influenced by other shows.

LGBT highlights include wins for Orange Is the New Black (see victory dance above) for comedy series and Uzo Aduba for her performance on the same show; Jeffrey Tambor for Transparent; and Alicia Vikander for The Danish Girl. Also, Queen Latifah won for Bessie, and I hear she liked women. Bessie Smith, that is.
