Kathleen saw Captain America: Civil War yesterday and the one comment she had about it is that she’s now psyched for the Black Panther standalone movie. Civil War is already rolling out overseas, and it opens in North America next week, so this is going to be a common refrain for the next several weeks. Full Story

I am not a mother. I am not qualified to speak to the joys, trials, and triumphs of motherhood. But I have seen the movie Mother’s Day, so I know all about pain, desperation, despair, and the deep abiding shame that comes from watching silently as another human being is repeatedly humiliated for the prurient pleasures of others. Full Story
