REMINDER — Bette’s Happy Hour +
Registration link for Bette’s Happy Hour — a wellness check for global newsies — Today, Oct. 3, 5 pm <3 featuring a special guest!

As always, as news breaks, we break for news. You know what that means, our Happy Hour will be featuring a special guest (can you guess who?) to help us navigate Trump’s week in court. The ghost of Roy Cohn applauds his performances. If you haven’t yet read American Monster 3, I have unlocked for all to peruse, because it offers vital links to what we are witnessing in real time.
I think Village Voice investigative reporter Wayne Barrett said it best:
"Roy is incandescent evil… the Satanic feeling that he would give you… He was the weirdest guy. He was into the strangest stuff. He was a chicken hawk after little boys, and yet he was the most virulently anti-gay guy you could imagine. And so, that was Donald's mentor and constant sidekick, who represented all five of the organized crime families in the City of New York."

Tuesday Oct. 3, 5 pm PT — after last week’s yoga session, join me in putting your computer on the floor and stretching during our wellness checks. By now, you have likely guessed who our special guest will be.
