Jen Psaki on Stephan Colbert last night

Fun interview! Really looking forward to her new show.

Oregon group of moms wanting to ban books

In this article, two of the women in this group are seeking to ban books in the West Linn-Wilsonville School District. They don’t have children that attend schools in the district. Yet, they want to impose their beliefs and ban books.


“They've since built up a small army to take on the West Linn-Wilsonville School Board, showing up to meetings and reading explicit passages from the books.
That army is part of the Oregon Moms Union. The group was founded during the pandemic by Mackensey Pulliam, wife of Sandy mayor and Oregon Republican gubernatorial candidate Stan Pulliam. KGW spoke to Mackensey Pulliam about the Oregon Moms Union and its goals last year.
"I think parents and families have a wide range of religious and personal values, and I think that sometimes they don't always appreciate that. Sometimes it feels like some of the curriculum that's taught is something that they would not prefer for their kids to learn at school," said Pulliam, "or they may prefer to teach it in a way that more so aligns with their values or their religious beliefs."
Since its founding, the Oregon Moms Union has taken on school boards across the state — rallying against COVID-19 restrictions, vaccine mandates, new guidance on supporting transgender students, and now books.”

After latest update, my podcasts won't play continuously

After the latest update for my iPad, 16.3.1, my Apple Podcasts won’t play continuously. I like to listen to podcasts at night, so it’s driving me crazy. I went to Settings and the continuous play is toggled on, so I’m not sure why it’s not working. Any ideas of how to fix it?

So, are the MAGA House members wearing their AR-15 lapel pins today?

I suppose they’re disgusting enough to wear them with pride.

Highly recommend The Makanai-Cooking for the Maiko House on Netflix

Experiencing a ton of stress from many directions right now and this show is so relaxing and sweet. No violence in any form. Beautiful scenery, a sweet story, yummy cooking, like Chicken Soup for the Soul, but Japanese style.

Former Portland Trailblazers broadcaster Bill Schonely has died

I have fun memories of listening to him on the radio. People would attend the games and have their radios with them, he was that much fun to listen to.


Bill Schonely has died at 93 years old.

The report comes from long time PDX sportswriter Kerry Eggers who co-wrote Schonelys autobiography.

Schonely is probably the most famous and beloved broadcaster in Portland history and the long time voice of the Blazers who coined the phrase “Rip City”.

The Mandalorian new season 3 trailer

Really looking forward to this! With The Last of Us and The Mandalorian, we have 4 months of Pedro Pascal.

Jenna Bush Hager interviewing Judy Blume

At the 4:36 mark, she comments to Judy Blume that she gave a copy of her book “Are You There God, It’s Me, Margaret” to her daughter. Her daughter asks if she could read it and Jenna replies that they have to ask daddy. This comes right after they discuss book banning and book burning. It totally rubs me the wrong way. If you want your child to read an important book about menstruation and puberty and she wants to read it, why the need to also get dad’s approval? I read this book as a young girl and really appreciated it. So did many girls I grew up with. This made the rounds along with a lot of her other books.

Rolling Stone 200 Greatest Singers of All Time


Taylor Swift? She’s popular yes, but really, of all time? Billie Eilish? Hmmm, I don’t agree.

They left out my favorite John Denver and also Neil Diamond and Celine Dion…

Who would you add to their list? Who do you think shouldn’t be on there?

Keith Olbermann's next podcast episode will be so fun to listen to!

Can’t wait for the snark regarding Trump’s “major announcement!”
