Bobby, I know people will decry my sentiments in defense of your poor soul, but I am beyond delighted that you are willing to sacrifice yourself so that we may have these entertaining posts. It’s selfish, I know, and I do apologize for that, but you are doing a service for us all, so thank you from the bottom of my deep, dark heart.

But Robert Redford, my lifelong crush (and I’m mid-50s, which is olde, so that’s a long damned time) just broke my deep, dark heart with that shit about not being a feminist. How dare he.
