Why do all women look like Janis Joplin, and other timely questions

Mark your calendars: Jan. 28, 2022. Russia says, “We don’t want wars.” Why they are in Syria and Kazakhstan, I don’t know. An invasion-ready army is on the northern and eastern borders of Ukraine. They are bringing in amphibious assault vessels able to attack from the Black Sea, but war is unimaginable. Putin wants a giant hug and a big, uninhibited, sloppy, wet kiss, only. He wants to use the amphibious vessels to bring tourists to Moscow.

Cat of the week: Janis Joplin

Janis Joplin is a friendly girl who loves attention. She may be hard of hearing (deaf)! She’s vocal about getting out of a cage and into her home. That’s how she gained her name. She is quiet, however, when she’s out in the open, exploring her environment. After walking around a room at the rescue, she’ll stand on her hind legs to look through the window to check out another room. If you’re looking for a loving, affectionate cat, Janis Joplin may be the one for you. She gets along well with other cats and kittens.

Did This French Aristocrat Have a Hand in the Deaths of Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin and Other '60s Icons?

Jim Morrison was found dead in the bathtub of his Paris apartment in the early morning hours of July 3, 1971 at age 27. Beyond those few facts, little else is agreed upon. A French medical examiner ruled that a heart attack ended the life of the Doors frontman, but no autopsy was ever performed. Fifty years later, fans continue to question the official story. Morrison's death has become the rock 'n' roll equivalent of the JFK assassination, spawning a dizzying array of legends that mix fact and myth. Finding the truth at the heart of these wildly divergent tales becomes less possible with each passing year, but amidst the confusion and misinformation, one man's name appears with notable regularity.
