I can highly recommend this film as a fun evening's entertainment.  A great film by Penny Marshall, with Geena Davis, Rosie O'Donnell (!), Tom Hanks, and Madonna, in a supporting role.  She plays "All the Way May" LOL.  With a bizarre cameo by Jon Lovitz. 

A League of Their Own has always struck me as a fun movie. It's just one of the myriad that I've somehow never gotten around to seeing.  :-\

I'm glad to have your recommendation, Paul. Thanks!  :)

(Jon Lovitz is always bizarre.  ;)  ;D )

Well, this is a first. I got a postcard from The New Yorker saying that their latest issue would reach me a week late. I wonder what happened.
May 2019 be better for us all.

I got two issues within less than a week of each other! Maybe they're all busy getting ready for the New Yorker Festival.

You've noticed that the interior has been redesigned?

I found that quite jarring.

It was quite a surprise, wasn't it?

Everyone must read Ariel Levy's Sept. 30 article about Edith Windsor and her lawsuit that brought down DOMA.

(Indicentally, I received no postcard, and none of my issues has been late.)

Oi, I'm sure behind in my issues now! I read hardly anything at all the entire week I was on vacation. Now here we are in the middle of October and I'm still reading the last issue from September (duty article about the Iranian military guy).  :(
