New Book Discusses “The Secret History of Wonder Woman”
Was Margaret Sanger, the leader of the birth control movement and founder of Planned Parenthood, the basis for Wonder Woman? Harvard historian Jill Lepore makes a case in her new book out late next month. You can read some excepts from the book here and here and in the above video hear Lepore tell the story of how she pieced together the untold story.
You can pre-order a copy of the book through my Amazon store.
WED, 02 JANUARY 2008 When I was in Europe I would play this game for hours and hours… it helped me zone out. Everybody would get involved… Derrick Dudley (Common’s manager) and Consequence were the best other than me… I beat Lexi… Don C beat Jay… Tony Williams beat Common… but every now and then people would speak of this legendary connect 4 champion……….. BEYONCE!!! I had 2 play her!…so last night at Jay’s new 40/40 club in Las Vegas (which is sidebar, crazy big w/ 24krt gold flooring, Black Jack tables, $500 slot machines,the biggest projection screen in the universe and the best turkey burgers I’ve ever had in my life) she beat me 9 times in a row! (and I didn’t even spaz lol) here’s a photo of the only game I won!
In the finale Ron says, “You two like to hold hands and jump off of cliffs together,” and I thought that was really sweet and really true. It’s a great thing to see on TV: a couple you’re rooting for that is unafraid of challenges. Instead, they want to go head first into them together. They’re both nerds and both a little weird, and it’s nice to have this relationship that is really, really solid, and will hopefully be able to withstand whatever challenges stand in its way. — Adam Scott
