Shirley Temple's Turn At Metamorphosis

Like so many others, I adored Shirley Temple films when I was a kid. She was a little living doll. Watching her act, sing and dance made me smile!

I give her props for transitioning into adulthood with a new found purpose after being such a mega-star in her youth.

Thank you Curly Top you were Our Little Girl for many Americans, with your Dimples and Bright Eyes that made many people Stand Up and Cheer! Baby Take a Bow, you will be remembered Now and Forever as The Little Princess.

A Perfect Visual Metaphor

So good people, the fifth ring failed to open during the opening ceremony at the Winter Olympics in Sochi. 

It was a perfect visual metaphor for the current condition the LGBT community is living under in Russia. Click here to learn more about Russia's anti-gay law.

This little ring was not able to fully open up and become it's perfect rounded-self. No, not this ring. It had to stay small and live in the closet 

Putin must have spit nails with this epic fail.
