A Week of Links

If only we all had such conviction and fortitude. Thank you, Jon Stewart.

I may be late to the party, but it’s never too late to enjoy a stream of bodega cats.

Charming animated film all about the clitoris.

Raw Sauce is the sensory highlight of my morning skin care routine.

Adele rapping Monster by Nicki Minaj never ceases to make me smile. Yes, it’s three years old and I’m still watching it on repeat.
