Jane Fonda arrested protesting climate change in Washington
NEW YORK (AP) ‐ Jane Fonda was arrested at the U.S. Capitol on Friday while peacefully protesting climate change.

The actress and activist was handcuffed on the east side steps and escorted into a police vehicle. Video of the arrest circulated online.

Fonda was one of 16 people arrested for unlawfully protesting and was charged with "crowding, obstructing or incommoding." She was released hours later.

On Thursday, the actress vowed to join Friday protests at the Capitol "inspired and emboldened by the incredible movement our youth have created."

Ira Arlook, of the group Fire Drill Fridays, confirmed that Fonda was arrested at the inaugural demonstration Friday.

Before her arrest, Fonda in a speech called climate change "a collective crisis that demands collective action now."

#6 Ms Fonda was granted a four month hiatus from the filming of season 6 of the Netflix series “Grace and Frankie” just so she could go to Washington and get arrested every Friday. If, during the rest of the week, she quietly gets a little more work done, no need to say anything specific about her ageless beauty.

Set up the standing headline as the rich old lady indulges herself.

On further reflection, guffaws:
I must really be ancient
To think of Ms. Jane, "Ain't
She got a morality clause?"

Speaking of Netflix, is there something going on there? I canceled my account awhile back - more for time reasons than their changing content - but lately they've been bugging me repeatedly to come back.

#10 Netflix, is there something going on there?

Competition with Amazon eating into their endless expansion, perhaps.

#11 NFLX's golden days are over. Can't get Disney content on the cheap anymore: Disney will eat up NFLX's margins, from both top- and bottom line.
