    Those pay phone booths were replaced with LinkNYC stands, a kiosk that provides wifi, a charging station for cell phones, and domestic phone calls for free.

    • Concern Fae says:

      One thing about the old pay phones is that they were directly connected to the phone grid at a higher level than ordinary phone lines, due to having to run the time measuring on top of the calls. That meant that in an emergency, if the phone circuits were busy, you could go to a pay phone and be able to get your call out. There used to be redundancy built into systems, but now everything is deregulated and about profit.

        Hey I didn’t know that…interesting. Thanks for the info !

      • Valerie says:

        I didn’t know that! How cool. It’s been ages since I’ve used a payphone. I think the last time was ~5 years ago when my cell died and I had to call my mom from the train station. Was I ever grateful that they still had them!

    I just bought Ms. Cox’ Barbie on Amazon.
    I’ll let y’all know if she comes with both outfits.

    I LOVED Barbies as a kid.
    And currently have a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader Barbie on display in my bedroom.
    But i bought this one- b/c i want to support Ms. Cox, and Mattel for not being totally backwards and awful.
    Cue story about how they throw money at right wing causes and politicians probably, but for today- proud to be a Barbie fan.

      Okay, great. Now, I want to see a Madam Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle Barbie doll! Two versions: one as an actor on Suits with the entire fabulous wardrobe; and two, as Princess Henry of Wales (*Marchioness of Montecito*) The Duchess of Sussex/ Success!!! 💓💗😍

    • Elizabeth Phillips says:

      I went online to see if anyone was talking about the outfits, only to see that there were already conversations debating whether the doll was anatomically correct.

    Ray Liotta died. He was 67.

    • ME says:

      Oh wow, what happened to him? I really thought he did an excellent job on Shades of Blue with Jennifer Lopez. Sad to hear.

      • Nev says:

        I agree. He was amazing in that role.

      • BeanieBean says:

        It’s Ray in Goodfellas for me. His first scene, where the camera pans up from his shoes to his face, with those eyes, sigh.

    • FHMom says:

      I just read this. It is shocking. Rest In Peace, Ray

    • aftershocks says:

      Oh no. I love Ray Liotta. Plus, he’s my generation. I guess I will have to gear up and be prepared for more and more actors of my generation to continue passing away, which obviously is an inevitable reality. Liotta was such a good actor. I love his mischievous grin. Of course, I know nothing about his personal life and I never met him. But it’s funny how following an actor’s career makes us feel we know that person in some way.

      Condolences to Ray Liotta’s family and friends. I’m glad that his screen performances will always be available to revisit. 😥

    Let’s see if the Baptist abuse finally gets the attention that the Catholic cases did. You get all the jokes about the Catholic priests, but back when these cases were front page news, there was an average of one conviction a week of Protestant priests, pastors, and youth ministers. The Catholics deserve every ounce of scorn they’ve gotten, but the other Christian denominations have had more abusers without the press scrutiny, because there isn’t the same level of hierarchy, enabling the fiction that these are all bad apples no one knew about.

    I want that Barbie!

  6. aftershocks says:

    Whoa! Viola Davis looks absolutely sparkling, scrumptious and wonderful in this magnificent aqua-colored suit at Cannes. My goodness, it pops so gorgeously against her velvety black skin. Yum! Yada Yada!


    Thanks for the soothing eye candy. 😍

    Depeche Mode member Andy Fletcher passed away as well. He was 60. Thank you for the soundtrack of our lives, safe trip. Condolences to his family, friends, and the Depeche Mode family.

    • FHMom says:

      Just awful. Way too young. RIP, Andy

      • Lala11_7 says:

        Depeche Mode has been one of the BEST things in my life since 1981 when I was 12😍 My Guy surprised me with tickets to see them on their last tour in 2015 at the SAME venue I saw them at in 1987 and they were MAGNIFICENT❣ I cried like family died when I heard about Fletch yesterday…cause that’s what DM is to me😭❤😢

    To our American friends: our hearts break for you. We are sorry that you are forced to carry this unbearable pain yet again. We are sorry that your legislators have failed you miserably for decades. We are sorry that none of them – from either side of the aisle – have done the hard work of legislative reform that would blunt this scourge. We are sorry that you have to live with the knowledge that this will happen again somewhere next month, next year, next decade. We are most especially sorry that a minority of your citizens have repeatedly put their petty partisanship ahead of the public good.

    Land of the free, but no freedom for children to learn in peace. Home of the brave, but no one brave enough to deal with short-term pain for long-term gain.

    We hope that your legislators will open their eyes to the fact that change is possible, it has worked in other countries, and even an incremental improvement is better than inertia.

    Andy Fletcher was so young 🙁 DM was a huge part of my high school soundtrack. Very sad day / week / month / year.
