Hot Topic Broadway is Back
Yay Broadway has reopened! Sunny took her daughter and friends to The Lion King. She happy cried at the beginning (because of pandemic). Everyone was wearing masks. Everyone has to be vaccinated. Little kids were loving it. Kids ask Whoopi about her voice in TLK (Shenzi the hyena).
Hot Topic JCOS General Milley Prevented WWIII
Whoo boy. This is what happens when a thoroughly researched book has snippets dropped for clicks and soundbites. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Milley did some stuff (after T45 lost the election and became unhinged) that helped prevent WWIII. Some of the panel think he committed treason, some don't. At the end of the day, VP Pence and the Cabinet failed to invoke the 25th which was 100% warranted. Anyway, Idk if this was dropped before the show aired >>
There were 15 people on the video teleconference calls, including a representative of the State Dept and the read out and notes from Milley’s two calls with his Chinese counterpart were shared with the IC and the Interagency. So, there was no secret can & string pinky swear backdoor conversations.
Hot Topic Facebook is the New Tobacco Industry
Wall Street Journal reports that internal Facebook studies show that teens on Instagram are more likely to suffer body image issues and have suicidal thoughts, and they did a) nothing to address this, and b) are wanting to launch a social platform for even younger children. Just like the tobacco industry knew for ages that cigarettes were deadly harmful but hid the information and lied the opposite.
