People Are Imagining The White House Exit Pranks Obama Could Play
Huffington Post - 3 months
President Barack Obama will hand over the keys to the White House to President-elect Donald Trump in less than two months. And Twitter users are already suggesting some lighthearted practical jokes the outgoing POTUS could play on his successor, via @TheWeeHoursWar and @Dubzzzinyaface’s globally trending #WhiteHouseExitPranks hashtag. It follows the wildly popular post-election Joe Biden meme, in which people imagined the vice president’s conversations with Obama during the transition.

From there, Cummings, beloved to Gen-Xers everywhere for her childhood roles in "The Goodbye Girl" and "Family," leads the reader through her frustrating, fulfilling, frequently very funny quest to build a meaningful education for her daughter Alice. Part memoir, part guide to understanding the rapidly growing home-school movement, Cummings' "The Year of Learning Dangerously" is, in her own words, her way of "explaining home schooling to people who don't home-school."

SUNDAY VIEW; A Bit Too Much Mr. Nice Guy For 'The Goodbye Girl'?
NYTimes - almost 24 years
