What’s Current: ‘Even in space, there’s a double standard’ – Carrie Fisher

 

15 of Carrie Fisher’s best, most honest quotes.

Carrie Fisher: So long, Princess, and thanks.

The importance of General Organa:

“This is the Leia that could easily have broken down or given up. But she was stronger than literally every man in her life. She kept going.”

California attorney general, Kamala Harris, pursues new pimping charges against Backpage. Weeks earlier a judge threw out a case against the site operator citing “free speech,” but Harris is not backing down.

“Harris has alleged that more than 90 per cent of Backpage’s revenue — millions of dollars each month — comes from adult escort ads that use coded language and nearly nude photos to offer sex for money.

She is doubling down on pimping charges in her final days before resigning to take her seat in the US Senate.”
