It’s entirely possible that you’ve lived your entire life without knowing that British Punk Rock Icon Billy Idol’s real name is William Broad. It is not exactly common knowledge. Similarly, I’ve worked in NYC’s Financial District for a decade without the knowledge that, just a few blocks from my day job, there is an intersection of the streets William and Broad, thus creating the unofficial Billy Idol Intersection!

This makes me so sad. 1950s Pin Up Model Bettie Page passed away on December 11th, 2008 at age 85.

Passive Aggressive Note of the Day

What Potluck?

I am not sure why a note about Men using the Women’s Bathroom also includes information about a Potluck event?

I wonder why that is? I also enjoy the note writer’s use of the word “Mens,” to mean more than one man.
