1. Justina Ireland's advice to aspiring women writers of color is hard but from what I have seen accurate.
2. It turns out the TSA is not going forward with the book search plan which is good because I am still bitter about the laptop/ereader ban.
3. Apparently Bea Arthur was a truck driver in the Marines and we can speculate many reasons she chose not to discuss this much later in life, but I like the secret missions one myself.
