    I have a great Wilco tshirt from Homage that says “our love is all we have” which feels like my mantra these days.

    In case you didn’t know, Dolly’s doctor pal Dr. Naji Abumrad is Radiolab host Jad Abumrad’s papa.

    This is why I keep saying that all the Confederate statues being torn down should be replaced by ones of Dolly Parton. (I think you actually posted a link to an article about that!)

    Excellent links! I just wanted to add one person to the overlooked women in history list: Lady Mary Wortley Montagu. When mentioned at all, she is usually described as a friend of Alexander Pope, with occasional mentions of her travel writing as well. Lady Mary Wortley Montagu introduced and advocated for smallpox inoculation in Britain.

    Adding another comment- I love the Messy Nessy post about celebrating Native Americans this Thanksgiving. I can’t decide which thing is my favorite on the list! Of course, I immediately gravitate to the retail items and any way to support small businesses is my jam. All of those dresses are so dreamy and the older women modeling the b. yellowtail garments are just so beautiful. I can’t wait to share the Native American denim line with my husband who is all about some American made denim- this will be even better! Heck, I may keep it under wraps so he can get a gift card from me this Christmas.
    Every year, with the exception of this one, my company exhibits at the Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries, and Museums (we specialize in cultural heritage preservation and conservation). This past year was my first time attending and it was the most marvelous experience. I met Joy Harjo and Sacheen Littlefeather as well as get to see Native peoples from all over N. America. They also had a film series in the evenings and I got to watch one called Spirit Game about the Iroquois Nationals Lacrosse team. So good that I even bought a copy. If you can find it, I highly recommend it! Another film I watched was about young indigenous families homeschooling their children to teach them their ancestral language and history. It gives me hope that many of these languages will survive after all. My favorite moment at ATALM was when a full blooded Apache came up to our booth. During our chat, he looked at my name and then asked where I was from with my southern accent. When I told him NC, he asked if I was Lumbee or Cherokee. I told him no, I’m half Afghan. He replied “Afghans are great warriors, too!”

    Sorry for the big addendum!

      Well for my part, I love comments like yours. I am a huge fan of all types of conservation, and even though I am not great at languages, I want us to keep all of them! And it is wonderful for people to be proud of their family. I had no idea that there would be any fashion behind that link and now I am going to go look.

    I like Carine Rotfeld’s take on “Emily in Paris – a fun cliche! So far she’s the only French woman to see it this way – the others are all furious.

    A few years ago, I read an award-winning novel that was so annoying I kept hoping a polar bear would eat the main character, so I wouldn’t have to finish the book.

    Then I discovered Emily in Paris. ‘Nuf said.

    I’m stating here, right now, that I will do what I can to help flip the senate blue. And you can all hold me accountable. And thanks for the Jeff Tweedy link – I’m a HUGE fan of his music and his politics.
