jfkjean Life in New York City has a funny way of throwing a curve ball every once in a while. I've been thinking of her and revisiting 'Miseducation' quite a bit as of late. Around 6pm yesterday evening whilst strolling down 11th and Broadway, I notice a figure in all black with a hood over her head, but just pulled back enough to catch a glimpse of the left side of her face. Suddenly, there she was. In a low register, I said "hey, Ms. Lauryn Hill", smiled and waved. She waved back and darted into a black truck. And that was a brief story of the highlight of my week. #TheSweetestThing 2d

jfkjean Seems like the bad news coming out of the west coast (also the SW) and their water supply won't cease. Approximately 3M gallons of this orange toxic sludge "accidentally" spilled onto the Colorado river (thanks, EPA) and of course is spreading to neighboring states. Hope my west coast peeps are prepped for this ongoing crisis. Image via RT News. 2w
