In 1967, Kathrine Switzer was the first woman to enter and complete the Boston Marathon as a numbered entry. She registered under the gender-neutral name of “K.V. Switzer”. After realizing that a woman was running, race organizer Jock Semple went after Switzer shouting, “Get the hell out of my race and give me those numbers.” however, Switzer’s boyfriend and other male runners provided a protective shield during the entire Marathon. These photographs taken of the incident made world headlines.

Joan Rivers was not a kind person. She tore people apart and called it comedy. She wished death upon others, made fun of women who were abused, and made offensive punchlines out of everyone in the media.

I would never say I am glad someone is dead. But I’m also not gonna pretend that she was a good person just because she’s gone.

Hear Ryan Adams Play An Unreleased Track, ‘The Door’ and More - on Today’s World Cafe

Ryan Adams just released his new self-titled album. Adams produced the new album himself in his own PAX-AM studio in Los Angeles, and brought the band he worked with (including co-producer Mike Viola) to this extended World Cafe session. They wound up performing a bunch of songs — including the previously unheard “The Door,” which was to appear on Adams’ unreleased “black hole album.”
