  The GOP base is in favor of a constitutional amendment that would prohibit abortion even in cases of rape and incest, but Mitt Romney is in favor of allowing those exceptions (which is at least a step closer to moderate and/or sane). Watch Samantha Bee interview GOP delegates about how they feel about Romney’s position, and see that they do believe in the right to choose, after all. Romney’s right that is, not women’s. Obviously.   ...
  Project Runway contestants are famously petulant – a montage of their eye rolls would probably be longer than a regular episode – but last week’s tantrum by contestant Ven Budhu sparked outrage when he brought his plus-size model to tears. For the “L'Oreal Paris Makeover My Friend Challenge,” contestants had to dress non-models, a challenge that always provokes groans from the designers, who are more accustomed to standard model-size proportions.

  Dear Roseanne, I’m in my mid-20s and will soon be getting a divorce from my high school sweetheart (we’ve been together a total of 10 years).

Plus, I’m pretty sure I would...
Crickets. They’re all that can be heard above the swish of bathwater as Little Birds opens, and the sound is an apt introduction to the sleepy Salton Sea, CA, town where the film begins. For a couple of restless 15-year-old locals, Lily (Juno Temple) and Alison (Kay Panabaker), the depressing surroundings are just too much to bear. So when a chance encounter with some street kids en route to L.A. offers them a way out, they take it. Despite the sweeping vistas of seascapes and weeds...
