THE FILM EXPERIENCE: Nathaniel Rogers has turned in his Top 20 films of 2020, and I was pleasantly surprised to see the gay ballet movie And Then We Danced in pole position. It's a film I haven't seen on many lists. I love his list! He includes a few in the upper reaches that I included in mine, wondering if I'd be the only one.

KENNETH IN THE (212): Brock Davin's gains are your gains.
NBC NEWS: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) has condemned Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia):
Loony lies and conspiracy theories are cancer for the Republican Party and our country. Somebody who’s suggested that perhaps no airplane hit the Pentagon on 9/11, that horrifying school shootings were pre-staged, and that the Clintons crashed JFK Jr.’s airplane is not living in reality.
Taylor Greene swiped back, tweeting:
The real cancer for the Republican Party is weak Republicans who only know how to lose gracefully. This is why we are losing our country.
Tumor says what?
I am retweeting this video of Marjorie Taylor Greene without comment. The video speaks for itself.— Ted Lieu (@tedlieu) February 1, 2021

NEWS LEADER: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-New York) used an Instagram Live session Monday evening to come out publicly as a sexual assault survivor, and to liken it to the abusive tactics of the GOP when they demand that everyone move on from the Capitol riot, an incident during which she expected she might actually be murdered. Her account makes it crystal-clear she could have been killed.
AOC just came out as a survivor of sexual assault and pushed through her tears to seamlessly draw comparison to the systematic abuse of the Right Wing. *That* is a warrior. Thank you, @AOC. 💔 pic.twitter.com/AcFSATXrGU— Fran Tirado (@fransquishco) February 2, 2021
