In other news, Attorney General Eric Holder has announced an FBI investigation into the shooting death of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown over the weekend. The Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division is also involved.

In the spring of this year, Senate Republicans and several Senate Democrats blocked the confirmation of Debo Adegbile as the head of the Civil Rights Division because of his record as a defense attorney.

Updating… to say Actor and Comedian Robin Williams has died at the age of 63. A statement from his publicist implied that he took his own life.

Rattle off any movie from my childhood and it’s a good bet Williams was either in it himself or voiced a character.

Depression is the worst. Fuck depression.

    As someone who has battled depression, I can agree. It is the worst.

    I recently rented The Butler. Williams put in an amazing performance as Eisenhower, a role I never would have pictured him in before. He was one of the most versatile actors of our time, able to switch from manic comedy to pathos on a dime.
