Friday: Newsy Snacks For Busy People
Bindi Irwin: Isn’t this amazing news?! OMG. Bindi Irwin grew up. *fanfare* Actually, that’s not amazing news, but I think that it’s pretty great that Bindi has been having nice times away from the public eye (or media at least) for long enough to make us FEEL like her ‘suddenly’ being 14 warrants front page news and a magazine spread. I like Bindi. I really do. Once I saw her in the city, leaving the theatre with her mum. She seemed very sweet and had a mini chat to me. How nice! More here.
Katie Holmes: Wow. There are so many stories flying around about Katie Holmes ‘escape’ from the TomKat marriage. It’s quite impossible to know what to believe. News.com.au reports on the elaborate plans that were put in place and clandestinely carried out by those close to Katie. They also report on Tom Cruise’s ‘man wife’ (their words, not mine) David Miscavige, Scientology’s leader and the third person in the TomKat union. I am fascinated by this story, but I’m hoping that a media outlet covers it in some objective, corroborated depth ultra-soon.
Mental Health: A recent study by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare has found that almost one third of prisoners have a mental illness. Depression, anxiety and untreated psychotic illnesses were the most common afflictions. Once in prison, many of these offenders are assessed and treated, and in fact achieve a degree of normalcy within the system’s structure. Such a crying shame that it takes incarceration for these people to receive the assistance they need. More here.
