Sometimes kids say the damdest things. Sometimes they also do the damdest things, like pestering their parents to get with the program. Kudos to the Obama girls for getting their dad to get off the dime on LGBT marriage equality. It’s about time!
This is what President Obama thinks Congress should be working on before they take their summer vacation…I agree. Get to work! #CongressToDoList

Since Whitney Houston’s passing, there have been photos circulating of her engaging in activity the night before. This evening being the precursor if you will to Clive Davis’ annual pre-Grammy bash, of which Whitney was sure to grace with her presence. A gala attended by many, it’s invitation only, and always well attended. The party still went on last night, Davis was quoted saying “She loved music and loved this night that celebrated music… Whitney would have asked that the music go on,” and so it did. The annual gathering began with a performance by Tony Bennett, followed by Diana Krall, Diddy and Alicia Keys, who dedicated her song “No One” to Houston. Some photos of Houston and Davis from previous years…
