Postal Service To Honor John Lennon-
The United States Postal Service is set to honor John Lennon with a 2018 commemorative Forever stamp.
The stamp will be released as part of the Music Icon series. The series has previously included Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Elvis Presley, among others. The Beatles were honored on a U.S. stamp in 1999 with a "Yellow Submarine" design.
There is no word yet on when and where the Lennon stamp will be issued on its first day of release, although it’s a good bet that a ceremony for it would take place in the Big Apple. That’s where he made his home with wife Yoko Ono.
The Lennon stamp will be the first one to feature an actual likeness of one of The Beatles.

“Roseanne” Revival Gets A Premiere Date-
A premiere date for the reincarnation of "Roseanne" is set.
ABC announced Friday that the family sitcom will return in an hour-long premiere March 27th. Its revival will feature nine episodes, and the return of Roseanne Barr, John Goodman, "Big Bang Theory" guest stars Sara Gilbert and Laurie Metcalf, and the rest of the original cast. Johnny Galecki will return for one episode, thanks to his “TBBT” co-stars being understanding and there are two actors tapped to play David and Darlene’s kids.
The network said in a statement it will "explore life, death and everything in between through the relatable, hilarious and brutally honest lens of the Conner household," and that the original cast and crew members "haven't missed a beat."
Chef Mario Batali made his circumstance even worse in trying to apologize for sexually harassing employees and wait staff.
On Friday, Batali issued an apology to his newsletter subscribers. He concluded with a post script for a pizza dough-cinnamon bun recipe. Unsurprising, Batali got dragged on social media for acting so insensitive.
One reader of the newsletter tweeted, (quote) "What a disappointment, in every possible way." Another mocked Batali, (quote) "When you’re apologizing for sexual assault and suddenly need a snack."
Before digging his hole even deeper, Batali stated in the newsletter, (quote) “My behavior was wrong and there are no excuses. I take full responsibility. I will work every day to regain your respect and trust.”
He then immediately betrayed himself. (People)
Talk About It:
- These men are losing jobs, but so far not facing criminal justice. Seems like a lot of them ought to spend time behind bars.
- Some of these misbehaving men are absolutely tone deaf.
- They say once you lose one of your five senses the other four become heightened. That could explain why tone deaf men are so touchy-feely with women.
- Pizza dough-cinnamon buns are delicious, but we’ve lost our appetite for them.
