Dozens of friends and fans are expected to honor ‘The World’s Foremost Authority’ at The Actors’ Temple on W. 47th St. in a big birthday bash on Tuesday night, he said from his Manhattan home. Known for his improvised ramblings, Corey has performed at comedy clubs around the world and appeared in films and Broadway plays. (via 'Professor' Irwin Corey, renowned comic, is turning 100 and is zany as ever)

Folks in my age range may remember him as the “Mad Bomber” from the movie Car Wash.

I waited in line to get a photo with Elizabeth Warren and was kicked out because I didnt have a book. I couldn’t afford it but thought I could get a photo since they were letting people with books take photos with her. When I was kicked out I said I couldn’t afford it and was almost out of the hall when an older man handed me a book and told me to go get a photo.

So here are my photos, including me pointing out how her book is close to what I spend each week on food and that I was kicked out of line for being too poor to afford it. I was also able to tell her to fight the “treat and reduce obesity act” that is being pushed by obesity alliance coalition to have Medicaid cover weight loss surgery and diet pills. It has financial ties to the makers of lap band, Allergan, and the director is the former policy director of glaxosmithkline. I’m kind of weepy but I told her I need access to food not weight loss.

A bomb severely damaged a Negro church today during Sunday school services, killing four Negro girls 

2014—

The four children, all cousins ages 9 to 11, died during a shoreline strike by an Israeli warship. 

…it was wrong then, it’s wrong now, it will always be wrong and there is no justification for it…

Social media savvy Senator Cory Booker is on a mission: take a selfie with each of his 99 fellow U.S. Senators. But it’s not all fun and games for Booker, who cites the bipartisan goal of emphasizing common ground between his colleagues on his quest. 

Yeah, this is some bullshit.  This country is a fucking hot mess and these fools taking selfies?  Fuck you Cory Booker, I thought you better than this 

…meanwhile, in Miami
