Historic flooding has caskets floating to the surface in South Carolina

Note: This post contains information about the latest episode of Downton Abbey, which has started airing its final season in the UK. American viewers can watch the final season starting Jan. 3 on PBS.
I keep thinking about the first season of Downton, and the giddy joy it made me feel — from the set, the characters, the bubbling subplots that threatened to explode and form new sources of tension.
I remember laughing out loud with friends at the thinly veiled gibes, gasping when something horrific happened (inevitably to someone kind) and feeling elated when crisis was averted.

Corin Tucker, Carrie Brownstein and Janet Weiss laughed off the idea of Sleater-Kinney being the best rock band in the world at The New Yorker festival on Saturday, but to many — including most occupants of the room — it's true. And the band kind of knows it, too
“When we’re on stage playing, I feel like we’re the best band in the world,” Weiss told New Yorker writer Dana Goodyear, who was moderating the panel. It helps when your bandmates are your favorite musicians.

ROSEBURG, Oregon — The gunman who opened fire at an Oregon college killed some of his victims after telling them to crawl across the classroom floor and shot one after saying he would spare her if she begged for her life, according to relatives of students in the classroom.
However, Christopher Sean Harper-Mercer spared a student and gave the "lucky one" something to deliver to authorities, according to the mother of a student who witnessed Thursday's rampage.

Tipped work is one of the fastest growing occupations in the US but one of the lowest paid. The federal minimum wage for tipped workers has been frozen at $2.13 since 1991. 2/3 of tipped workers impacted by the archaic sub-minimum wage are women, and they earn, on average, only 79% of what their male counterparts earn. The disparities get even worse when we account for racism in the industry; black women servers are paid only 60% of what male servers overall are paid.
