Valerie, I am feeling as dense as a layer of permafrost. Is the point of the objectionable post that Snape uses magic to clean the kitchen? Or is it the assumption that ladies make dinner? Help!!

I think the characters are from the new Star Wars trailer, and the objection is to “A woman’s place is in the kitchen.”

And at the end, when all the objects of love have fled the suffocating grasp of this demanding tyranny, the knowledge of ill-treatment and feelings of self-pity will be as a balm and comfort in this self-inflicted isolation.

Interesting article…but it has the typical biases:

“the top-performing fake election-news stories on Facebook generated more engagement than the top stories from major news outlets such as The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, NBC News, and others.”

As if the MSM outlets are 100% true and objective. And when did PuffHo join the big boys (sorry, Arianna, for the sexist slang). It’s the definition of fake news.
