The world was shocked and mystified this month by the death of Marilyn Monroe, an apparent suicide at the age of thirty-six. The paradox of a young woman who was revered as a star but who led a troubled personal life may bewilder those of us who have never experienced the intense pressure of celebrity. Perhaps it is best to offer quiet sympathy to her friends and family and allow them to mourn in privacy.



The police are baffled, to use a cliché, by the robbery of a mail truck containing one and one-half million dollars in Plymouth, Massachusetts. This is the largest cash heist in history. The daring holdup men, dressed as police officers, stopped the vehicle while it was on route from Cape Cod to Boston.



Even listening to the radio can be a puzzling experience. The airwaves are dominated by Neil Sedaka's smash hit Breaking Up Is Hard to Do. At first, this seems to be a simple, upbeat, happy little tune, particularly considering the repetitive, nonsensical chant of down dooby doo down down comma comma down dooby doo down down. Listening to the lyrics, however, one realizes that this is really a sad song about the end of a love affair.



With all of this confusion going on, it's appropriate that the latest issue of Fantastic features characters who are perplexed, authors who seem a little mixed up, and stories which may leave the reader scratching her head.

Please put your paws in the air and welcome our latest Star Kit, Toulouse. He is a 13 week old Exotic Shorthair from Bristol, UK,

Toulouse

Hello I’m Toulouse. I am a smoke exotic shorthair and I came to live with my new mummy last week (I also have a one year old brother called Minton who is a red exotic, and Foley a black and white moggy female who is six). I was the runt of the litter and I’ve been poorly but I’m feeling much better! Hello!

Toulouse

I was looking at a catalog today and found the most frightening t-shirt I've seen in a while.

The design was meant to be patriotic and comforting -- a kitten looking out from under a draped American flag. I can't fault the idea, though it's not to my taste.

However-- on a shirt? The kitten is all head and it's huge -- the size of a small leopard. And with the shading, it appears to be emerging from the wearer's chest, confidently searching for more food...

Facebook Kittens/Alien.

Not for the win. ewwww.

There are reports that Supernatural may end with season 14, a shortened season at that.

How do you want the show to end? Do you want it to never end? Is it way past time?

I got an extension on my kidlit story but I'm no closer to being done than I was when I asked for it. Where did my writing mojo go?

Texas Tribune is partnering with ProPublica and NPR to explore the systemic reasons behind Texas’ rising maternal mortality rate. They need our help: Help us investigate why Texas moms are dying at alarming rates.

If you are a Texas woman who had severe pregnancy complications, or if you know a Texas woman who died after giving birth, we want to hear from you.

Quartz: Procter and Gamble’s new anti-racism ad is roiling white America. Not this member of white America, obviously, but yes, unfortunately.

The Nation: Historical Amnesia About Slavery Is a Tool of White Supremacy.

The Brookings Institute: Essay - THE WALL | The real costs of a barrier between the United States and Mexico.

NPR: All Songs 24/7 played songs for the North American Total Eclipse all day, meaning every song they own which has "sun" or "moon" in the title. I liked "When the Sun Come Up" by All My Exes Live In Texas, an Australian folk group. Their CD, "When We Fall" is now on my Wish List. Listen to Boundary Road from their first release. Their harmonies are so lush.

New York Times:
How to Take Care of Your Clothes. Maybe it will be useful to someone.
The Case for a Breakfast Feast. Breakfast is my favorite meal so I am all in favor of this advice.

LitHub: Sue Grafton from A to Z. Today is the publication date for Y is for Yesterday. I quit reading her series around V is for Vengeance, I think. I can't remember why. Maybe it's time for a reread.

Did you know that Rosemary Kirstein (The Steerswoman series) was a panelist at Reader Con? Well, now you do. From her blog: My Reading. It sounds like she's still working on books five and six which makes me so happy.

Once the meerkat cannon has been loaded, you’ll be wanting to get yourself elsewhere.

Please, please, please act like you have got some sense and do not damage literal museum artifacts in the quest for the perfect photo op. For instance, definitely do not put your kid in an 800-year-old coffin lest you knock it over and break it.
