// So many of you may have caught wind of Ann Coulter publicly referring to President Obama as a "retard" on Twitter the other night after the final debate. Well, a lot of people didn't like that. Special Olympics athlete John Franklin Stephens penned this open letter to Ms. Coulter. It is seriously beautiful. Please read it.

// Roxy's blog is seriously one of my favorites because she always has something awesome to share. The past several posts on GrrFeisty are no exception! She always seems to have such a happy attitude and it's contagious! 

// Kanye Wes Anderson. Get into this, because this is too good!

// My Brown Baby's post: Why I'm Voting for Barack Obama in the 2012 Presidential Election. This is also a really solid read. My politics are showing I guess, but this is an eloquent post.

// This is my absolutely favorite thing in this shop. I really want it for my coffee table!

// This is such a sweet gift.

// LuLu*s website got a makeover! It's so fresh and clean! (On the verge of breaking out into an Outkast chorus here)

// Wishlist Wears: this bright red bag! -- this sexy plunging (!!!) dress (i know, who am i?!) -- this orange dress (and absolutely everything it's styled with! swoon) -- this crazy wild dress is only $15 -- this kate spade ipad sleeve (it's so perfect!) -- this skull bracelet! -- i reallyyyy want this scarf in every color (from target!) -- my heart aches for these shoes -- and these (out of season) -- and finally, perfect motorcycle boots!

// Use the code FLIP4FALL over at Threadflip to get 20% off orders of $50 or more! (Valid only in October, for one use only! Get on it!) Feel free to shop what's left of my closet, if you fancy!

// Caitlin got a new blog! Say hello to Desert Dandelion! I adore that girl.

  3. John Franklin Stephens may just be my new hero. I read the letter last night and totally teared up. I've got to admit I didn't think someone with Down's Syndrome could write so eloquently, just shows my own inbuilt prejudice and has forced to to re-examine my view of intellectual disabilities.

    Loving all the election stuff you are including as well, watching from the other side of the pond I've found this election really interesting. I always thought of the UK as being relatively forward thinking, but Romney's attitude seems to have made it over here too now and government ministers are getting away with saying things that I find really insulting. I think it's really important for bloggers to be vocal about this stuff, some people might disagree with you, but it needs to be said (I know you are usually more political on you Twitter and Tumblr anyway).

    Love that Tom Hanks and Woody photo, totally made me smile xo

  18. I'll admit it: I cried over John Franklin Stephens' letter. It was so moving. I especially loved this line: "No one overcomes more than we do and still loves life so much."

  19. Thank you for including my Etsy link in your faves list....AGAIN! You are too kind :)

    And thanks for sharing the John Franklin Stephens open letter. VERY eloquent and heart-felt. His words are poignant: "...you, and society, need to learn that being compared to people like me should be considered a badge of honor." Well said.

  27. That Picture of Tom Hanks is Priceless! I read that letter to Ann Coulter and it made me a bit teary eyed I work in special Ed at a Middle school so it was wonderful to see such a powerful well written letter on the view of the R word.
