Anonymous said: Omg I didn't know I wanted it until you mentioned it, but yes I want to know the state of Lockhart, Gardner & Canning!! Also, I didn't get the impression that Alicia was against abortion, I just thought she was pissed about being lied to, and crisising about her parenting skills for not noticing. But it is something to consider, now it's been brought up.
Yeah, the state of Lockhart Gardner, Canning! Because David Lee and Louis Canning thought they were masterminding and playing the game because they figured out that Diane was not retiring, but leaving for Florrick Agos, and they were meeting with her clients to trash talk Cary and so forth. But now they’ve been blindsided, right? Because Dean convinced those six attorneys to move to Florrick Agos with him and Diane on her last day, and they all kinda snuck out of the office together. Those attorneys were department heads and proteges and stuff, so what did David and Louis do when they found out? When did they find out, just the next morning? This is not a two-weeks notice situation, huh. Is there going to be more fighting over clients like last season? (intensely whispers, have the middle aged black woman take the lead on that fight. i am banging the drum for a black woman on this show.)
Dang, tho, no one I’ve talked to agrees with me about Alicia’s stance on abortion, everyone agrees with you, dear anon. The specific way she told Zach what answer to give a reporter pinged my brain. She said, if a reporter asks to tell them, “We discussed it, I counselled you to keep it and said I would help with it.” The way that was phrased made me think that Alicia genuinely thought that a 16 year old should go through with a pregnancy and then raise the child. Just it seemed very strident. Second, the fact that this was a prepared answer for a potential media inquiry means that she wants, or anticipates or accepts, that this opinion will be in the public record, and she’d be known as a candidate for state’s attorney as someone who opposes abortion. I doubt that she wants to make abortion illegal but it seemed like she thinks that it shouldn’t be a choice that a middle class teen girl with involved parents makes.
- so alicia is an anti-abortion atheist, apparently.
- i was really surprised with how harsh and angry she was with zach. the main emotional avenue she had as a character always seemed to be towards her kids. but that “have fun at college” *hangs up* moment on the phone with zach was like, hella final and also kind of bad communication.
- it’s p funny that the last few weeks the news about the show has been, CARY’S GETTING A BIGGER ROLE ZOMG. and this week he was in one scene. i think cary’s fine as a character and could be pretty interesting but this show has so dang much plot already they could do twice as many episodes per season with just the stuff they have cooking right now.
- for example: what’s the fallout at lockhart-gardner-canning (or wevs it’s called now) since diane, dean, and six department heads peaced out? i want a story line about one of those other lawyers, in particular, the middle aged black woman who was sitting at that table that dean got together in ep 2. i think this show needs another woc of color and i’m kinda judgy about the lack of black characters given that this show takes place in chicago.
- i still hate peter.

Malala and Kailash Satyarthi win Nobel Peace Prize
Pakistani child education activist Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi, an Indian child rights campaigner, have jointly won the Nobel Peace Prize.
At the age of just 17, Malala is the youngest ever recipient of the prize.
The teenager was shot in the head by Taliban gunmen in October 2012 for campaigning for girls’ education. She now lives in Birmingham in the UK.
The Nobel committee praised the pair’s “struggle against the suppression of children and young people”.
Mr Satyarthi has maintained the tradition of Mahatma Gandhi and headed various forms of peaceful protests, “focusing on the grave exploitation of children for financial gain,” the committee said at the Nobel Institute in Oslo.
The 60-year-old founded Bachpan Bachao Andolan, or the Save the Childhood Movement, which campaigns for child rights and an end to human trafficking.
i have bought 1000 “C”s to give to the first 1000 people who want them on their jersey. Just go to the Sens store starting on Tuesdays (formerly taCo tuesday) next week. I want to C as many of them on the jerseys as possible for our home opener. C u next week :).
I just want y’all to remember that a few days ago a visibly armed white man was pointing a gun at children in a park in broad daylight. He was calmly talked down and brought in to custody. TJ Lane shot up his school, was taken to trial peacefully, sentenced, escaped, and peacefully captured again. Or the white man who under the influence of some drug, attacked 3 officers in the police station, disarmed one and fired a shot. He wasn’t even tased.
Let’s compare that with the fact that, Mike Brown was shot 6 times while surrendering. Vonderrick Myer was armed with a fucking sandwich and shot at 16 times. Levar Jones was stopped for a seat belt violation and got shot at 4 times for retrieving the ID he was ordered to show. John Crawford III was shot for being armed with an airsoft gun, in Wal Mart, where they sell airsoft guns!
I’m thankful for all the different ways I can eat potatoes
