1. Poem for Beau
On July 28, 1981, Jimmy Stewart, while on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, showed off one his lesser known talents by reading a poem that he had written about his dog, entitled “Beau”. By the end of his reading, both Johnny Carson and Ed McMahon’s eyes were welling with tears:
- Rick Perry, who famously wanted to abolish the Energy Department, said at his confirmation hearing to lead the Energy Department he now rejects "recommending its elimination."
- Vladimir Putin has used KGB tactics to seize on a rift between the US and Turkey, an effort to expand Russia's influence and divide NATO.
- Donald Trump's pick for treasury secretary, Steve Mnuchin, defended at his confirmation hearing using offshore tax shelters, saying it was an inevitable result of current tax codes.
- Been wondering why your friends now look like weird glamorous cartoons? That's thanks to Chinese selfie app Meitu. Say cheese 📸
