I haven’t been paying too much to the news in general, mostly because a lot of my Twitter time was dedicated to the readathon last week. And the links I have here are all kinda sorta Hamilton related. I don’t know how that happened. Enjoy!
Lin-Manuel Miranda raps to bring attention to the plight of Puerto Rico while on the John Oliver show. I admit to not knowing much about how dire the situation was in Puerto Rico, and I hope Lin bringing attention to it helps Congress get their act together to do something.
Harriet Tubman is going to be on the front of the $20, Hamilton is staying on the front of the $10. I know there are a lot of differing opinions on Tubman being on the $20, and a lot that have many valid points, but I am SO here for it. And I confess, I’m one of the suckers that is glad Hamilton is staying on the $10, thought I think they SHOULD add Eliza to it. It can be a portrait of them both on the front, it’d be adorable.
This isn’t even news or anything, but someone made a video about Hamilton tickets being way more exciting than having a baby and clearly that is perfectly in my wheelhouse.
UPDATE: I saw this tonight and had to add it – #HAMILTODD. I already love Sweeney Todd so this is just blowing my mind. Sarah brains all over the place.
