When Lies Turn Into Prophecies A very drunk man won’t stop telling me about trains. The Cape Town summer is hot, the night sticky, my drink warm. This gay bar will surely sink, given the number of heaving bodies shoved inside it. I nod at the train-talker, plotting an escape, and you appear. Your accent is cute, your beard cuter, and you tell the train guy that we’re here together. Suddenly, we are here together. It isn’t a lie; it’s a prophecy, and a good one at that. Ten years, three countries, five cities, four dogs and two toddlers later, we’re still here, together. — Michael McClelland Music in the Woods Jenny plays music from her MP3 player.

During Monday’s broadcast of Fox’s flagship morning show, the hosts discussed a straw poll from right-wing youth organization Turning Point USA’s latest conference that showed Trump received 79 percent support as the 2024 GOP presidential nominee. Co-host Steve Doocy , however, cautiously noted that other recent polls showed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis—a figure conservative media has increasingly rallied around as a Trump alternative—edging out the former president. “So, it’s like the young people who are activists at that event like the former president but, looking at these other polls, different answer,” Doocy added. Obviously watching his favorite morning show that day (like every other day ending in Y), Trump quickly took to his social … [Read more...] about ‘Fox & Friends’ Is Now Begging Trump to Love Them Again

Yet there may be charitable organizations you want to support, friends or family asking for financial help and things you want to buy for yourself. It’s possible to do these things even on a limited budget. But if you want to be responsible with your money, you have to know where to draw the line. When is it OK to put your own interests first?
