White Christmas” is an Irving Berlin song reminiscing about an old-fashioned Christmas setting. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the version sung by Bing Crosby is the best-selling single of all time, with estimated sales in excess of 50 million copies worldwide.
Accounts vary as to when and where Berlin wrote the song. One story is that he wrote it in 1940, in warm La Quinta, California, while staying at the La Quinta Hotel, a frequent Hollywood retreat also favored by writer-producer Frank Capra. He often stayed up all night writing — he told his secretary, “Grab your pen and take down this song. I just wrote the best song I’ve ever written — heck, I just wrote the best song that anybody’s ever written!”
This is so wrong 😡

The new Miss Universe, everyone :)
But in her final question of the competition, when asked what we should be teaching young girls today, “leadership” was the new Miss Universe’s answer:
“It’s something that has been lacking in young girls and women for a very long time—not because we don’t want to, but because of what society has labeled women to be,” she told host Steve Harvey.“I think we are the most powerful beings [in] the world, and that we should be given every opportunity, and that is what we should be teaching these young girls: to take up space. Nothing [is] as important as taking up space in society, and cementing yourself,” she added, as the audience roared in agreement.
I was still shook that we have a black girl with natural short hair as Miss South Africa and she went and became Miss Universe!!! Against the status quo. A breath of fresh air. CHANGE!!! 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 pic.twitter.com/zqNgp4ykeY

Can confirm NYT report (t.co/wTO9MJWVkK) that Barr made a last minute declassification of details about Steele that will be in IG report. Steele was told about this yesterday and was not given a chance to review the new information, which as NYT notes is highly unusual.

Uh huh 😒
The Criminality of Betsy DeVos:
The latest on her criminality, from poster Kay,who is an attorney and has studied DeVos for years:
The “privacy issue” the students sued on is this- DeVos hired a far Right lawyer to lead a team to use the student’s personal information to investigate the students and deny their loan relief claims. The personal information was collected by the Department in the process of administering the loans- it’s illegal to use it for other purposes.
I imagine they’ll be back in that court since if looks like they lied about how many students they targeted- they told the court targeted 16,000- the correct number is 45,000.
I think they only corrected the lie because they have to appear before a House committee this week, and the House committee may have know the original number was a lie when it was submitted to the court.
DeVos needs to go to jail.
DeVos has been damn near flying under the radar with all the other sh!t going on.
Where is the lie
Good Morning, Everyone 😄😄😄
