Sometimes I can tell exactly which painting, which historical artifact, a...

While it should be clear to all of us that Serena Williams is a boss, one journalist’s casual sexism (aka failure to acknowledge her accomplishments as a woman) suggests otherwise. Thankfully, British tennis star Andy Murray was there to remind him. (Watch the clip at the bottom of this post for the real deal.) Murray had just lost the Wimbledon quarterfinals to American Sam Querray when a journalist started a question with: “Andy, Sam is the first American player to reach the semi-final of a Slam...

On the record's first single, "Fire," Ditto reminds us that she's a rock 'n' roll Dolly Parton at her core. (She also...
