It’s Indigenous People’s Day so the kids are home from school with me today keeping me busy. Do you have a three-day weekend, too? What have you been up to? I just helped Jackson with his new puzzle, and I’m hoping I’ll have an hour later to finish this book I’ve been reading for the past week. Anyone have any recommendations for my next book? I’m in the mood for a memoir! I’ll be back tomorrow with a new column, and in the meantime here are a few links from around the web you might like:

Groom sexually assaulted a bridesmaid days before getting married. The craziest part is the bride still married him two days later.

    That wedding article is batshit. If walking in on your groom raping your bridesmaid isn’t enough to call off the wedding, then what the actual fuck is?

    That groom story is amazing. HE needs closure? He didn’t know what THEY did? MISTAKES are behind US? WTF? And what kind of desperate woman marries the guy anyway? I would be so done with both of these people.

    yeah groom story is disgusting. Yuck yuck yuck.

    It’s a chilly day in Chicago. Sun is shining but very dreary at work. One of our colleagues was murdered over the weekend so everyone is, of course, just moving in a daze.

        it’s pretty nuts. The home invasion over on the NW side of Chicago. Found out Sunday it’s a guy I know from work who was killed

    Alan Cumming’s memoir, Not My Father’s Son, is amazing. He’s over come so much. I was really impressed with it.

    It would have been nice in the spirit of Indigenous Peoples Day if you could have linked to some articles about Indigenous issues or cultures.
