This and That

Walking with Cake: African Violets

(African violets at Moody Gardens in Galveston.)

I came back from last week’s break and decided to skip posting on Wednesday. It’s summer and my birthday was this week, so why not? It is HOT in Central Texas now, and we’re seeing the first triple digit temperatures of the year. But it’s practically August, so we know that relief will come soon enough. Hopefully. In the meantime, here are some things that caught my eye this week.

Sandra Bland died in jail just days after arriving in Texas. The police are responsible, and it has to stop.

It’s illegal to employ undocumented workers, yet our government does it every single day for unfair wages.

Is the concept of ethical shopping just a myth?

Photographs of young girls caught up in the justice system.

One photographer’s pictures of a Mennonite community in Bolivia.

A different take on motherhood.

The smear campaign against Planned Parenthood.

Advice from the ladies of Advanced Style.

And hilariously accurate impressions of our favorite “Orange Is the New Black” characters.

Have a wonderful weekend!
