Tuesday Reads

At least this article about Gene Wilder's honoring of third wife Gilda Radner's memory through various cancer organizations mentions Wilder did have another wife after Gilda, his widow Karen Boyer, a speech-language pathologist.

That is more than what a lot of people and writers are noting. Boyer was devoted to Wilder until the end of his life.

After all, it is most likely Gilda would have wanted Gene to move on.

Dipshit wastes his time trying to slam schools nobody recognizes as "seven sisters" while further sinking his boss's chances. Besides, most people don't know what "Seven Sisters" schools are, and at least one of them coed (Vassar) and has been for years. One of them, Radcliffe, for all intents and purposes doesn't even exist anymore having been totally absorbed into Harvard University.

Once upon a time, the "Seven Sisters" schools--Wellesley, Mt. Holyoke, Smith, Barnard, Vassar, Radcliffe, and Bryn Mawr--were once considered the counterparts of the Ivy League schools back when women were not allowed to attend the Ivies. Women so inclined attended those schools instead. Women started attending the undergraduate Ivy League classes beginning in 1969 when Yale and Princeton started going coed. Harvard went coed in 1977, and Columbia didn't open its doors to women until around 1983. Columbia was the last of the Ivies to allow women in undergraduate studies.

The "Seven Sisters" schools of course still exist except for Radcliffe, and several of them are still single-sex schools.

In any case, one's sex life has nothing to do with what school he or she attends.

The New York Times engages in more anti-Clinton bullshit.

The Foundation is merely a charity, nothing more and nothing less.
