Long Read. My editor at my college newspaper days is now a well-respected journalist covering the rise of domestic extremism.  Her latest piece discusses how a walking trail in rural Oregon became a flashpoint for far-right extremism.

Until yesterday, I had never heard of Baroness von Sketch Show and my life was the lesser for it.  My friend Michelle shared this hysterical video about making sense of fashion after a certain age, and I loved it.  I watched it four times.  Laughed every time.

You see, even for a fashion blogger, the current Gen-Z and Young Millenial trends make no sense to me.  How can the same wardrobe contain these high waisted ’80s mom jeans and a swimsuit made out of dental floss and a leftover COVID mask?  It’s a mystery.  

Regardless, the video is hysterical.  It has replaced Last F**kable Day as my favorite thing to watch when I need a laugh.
