Deleted Scenes: What Bombing Syria Gets Us

Deleted Scenes: Sick In Summer

I ask you, is there anything worse than being sick in the summertime? When you were a kid, at least if you were sick over the winter, it made sense. It’s cold, you have a cold—there was symmetry to it. Plus you got to miss school. But to be under …
