Things We Saw Today: ACLU Celebrates #NationalColoringBookDay With Some Lovely RBG Pictures
— ACLU National (@ACLU) August 2, 2017
In case you weren’t aware, today is #NationalColoringBookDay, and if you needed an excuse to take some quiet time out of the day to color some books, I’m going to go ahead and say that’s a-okay. The ACLU shared their work, which features a nice selection of superhero Ruth Bader Ginsburgs. Nice.
- The NAACP of Missouri has just issued a travel advisory to people of color, women, people living with with disabilities, and/or LGBTQIA people, warning them against visiting the state due to its history of discrimination of prejudice. (via The Daily Dot)
- NASA is currently searching for someone to defend the planet against extraterrestrial threats. No, it’s not quite as glamorous as an action movie; they’re mostly looking for someone to shape policy around extraterrestrial contact and make sure astronauts are properly disinfected upon return from outer space. Really, that’s an important job, though, as that one episode of Rick & Morty has shown us. (via MSN)
The archbishop of a Catholic church in Ottowa earned the ire of his congregation when he allowed street performers La Machine to walk their large animatronic spider across a cathedral. Dang. (via Boing Boing)
- Disney’s upcoming Christopher Robin film just cast Hayley Atwell as Christopher Robin’s wife. Ewan McGregor will be playing the titular character, and suddenly all my Star Wars/Captain America crossover fanfic feels so, so vindicated. (via Inside The Magic)
- Judith Jones, legendary editor behind The Diary of Anne Frank and Mastering the Art of French Cooking has passed away. She was 93. (via NPR)
