Plus Jon Hamm is despicable, The Wolverine has ninjas, and Jane Fonda remembers Harvey Milk.
Winona Ryder says that if she’s home and Heathers comes on television, not only does she watch it, she recites her lines at the television. “I was watching Little Women recently, and I didn’t want to get up for fear of missing something. And Heathers is like my own Rocky Horror Picture Show; I recite the lines when it’s on. It may seem odd, but I think it’s because they’re really good movies.” So do I, Winona, so do I.

Rush Limbaugh decided to open his big mouth about Jason Collins and how the media reacted to the historic announcement. “I grew up in a family… where people’s sexual orientation, preferences, whatever – weren’t even discussed. Why can’t everyone just put your sexual preferences on Facebook and call it a day? Why do we need to stop everything and have a national day of celebration, or mourning, depending on your point of view… about this? There is no tolerance at all here. Not only do these people have to publicly announce it, everyone else has to applaud and accept it. If you wanna say you’re gay, fine, but does it have to be rammed down everyone’s throats all the time?” I, for one, would like to applaud the visual I got from “rammed down everyone’s throats.”

The park is said to cost $200 million, which sounds like a lot until you realize that just the expansion of Universal Studios Hollywood will cost $1.6 billion. So enjoy the Til-a-Whirl.
Ohio Republicans aren’t fans of voter rights if you remember the last election. Now they’re proposing a rule that if a public institution helps students register to vote in Ohio instead of their home state, the school has to charge them in state tuition, depriving the school of mountains of money. Young people tend to vote Democratic.
The weather is warming up, so remember to use a beer cozy. That condensation may look cool and refreshing, but it’s really just your beer getting warm. Or you could just drink faster. Your call.
News bloopers are the best. Susanna Collins was talking about the playoff return of the Blackhawks, and had a little slip of the tongue. “The second season starts tonight and this Blackhawks team is ready. All season long, they have been saying that this is the season that matters. And, despite the fact that they had such a tremendous amount of sex… er… success during the regular season…”

Congressional sponsors of the Respect for Marriage Act will hold off on introducing the bill until after the Supreme Court rules on the Defense of Marriage Act, which makes sense, as the bill may need to change drastically depending on the scope of the ruling.
Rapper A$AP Rocky has huge respect for men who come out of the closet. “I respect men more for coming out. They joke on Frank Ocean a lot, but at least he ain’t out here frontin’. It’s a lot of mothafucka’s they be out here they be in the closet mothafucka’s. I don’t respect them. I respect gay men who identify it and they out with it. I don’t have a problem with gay people at all.”
