Getting On: Flossie Lewis Tells It Like It Is, And Like It Can Be Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-05-09 at 7.12.06 AM(Video still via YouTube @ PBS NewsHour)

The things that get the most hits on my blog are sexy guys, Madonna and original listicles that I create, but sometimes I find something I have to post even though I know it won't set the world on fire.

Maybe the world doesn't need to be on fire 24/7.

“Just liking someone is a treat, because part of being old is to get cranky.”—Flossie Lewis

Do yourself a favor and watch the following brief video of Flossie Lewis, 91, saying out loud some very comforting things about what getting older means. If you're worrying about turning 30 or 40 or 70, or if you just want to stow this advice away for a later date, it's so useful, and so thoughtfully delivered ...

Susan Sarandon As Bette Davis, Jessica Lange As Joan Crawford In FEUD Comments (0)

Ryan Murphy's latest TV anthology series is Feud, and will center on the long-running hate-hate relationship between screen queens Bette Davis and Joan Crawford.

Let that settle in.

We will watch the women do battle over an eight-episode arc, all of which will take place during their legendary collaboration on the classic film What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?

Who wants to bet that if it's picked up, the next arc will be about Joan Fontaine and Olivia de Havilland?

(Sidebar: Jane is simply the best, but it might be the story most misappropriated for use as a slur against any woman not acting her age. See: Madonna. It's intellectually a very lazy comparison. Sunset Boulevard is right behind it.)

Just for comparison's sake: Davis was all of 53 when she shot the film, though people tend to think of her as having been far older. Crawford was a more flatteringly styled and made up 56. Sarandon, still considered a sex object, turns 70 this year, while Lange just blew out 67 candles. So, some progress has been made on our cultural estimation of when women are over the hill.

Former U.S. Senator Harris Wofford, 90, Marrying A Man Comments (0)

Former Democratic U.S. Senator Harris Wofford, who lost his seat in 1994 49% to 47% to young Rick Santorum, has announced he will marry his longtime male partner in a moving essay for The New York Times.

Wofford is 90, his partner, Matthew Charlton, is 40. They have been together for 15 years, beginning five years after Wofford's wife's death.

Imagine being married for 48 years and also having a 15-year (so far!) relationship after that.

From Wofford's essay:

Too often, our society seeks to label people by pinning them on the wall — straight, gay or in between. I don’t categorize myself based on the gender of those I love. I had a half-century of marriage with a wonderful woman, and now am lucky for a second time to have found happiness.

For a long time, I did not suspect that idea and fate might meet in my lifetime to produce same-sex marriage equality. My focus was on other issues facing our nation, especially advancing national service for all. Seeking to change something as deeply ingrained in law and public opinion as the definition of marriage seemed impossible.

I was wrong, and should not have been so pessimistic. I had seen firsthand — working and walking with the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. — that when the time was right, major change for civil rights came to pass in a single creative decade. It is right to expand our conception of marriage to include all Americans who love each other.

Unfortunately, Wofford voted against a measure that would have allowed then President Bill Clinton to end the military's ban on gay service members.
