The Daily T LOunge for March 18, 2020

Posted on March 18, 2020

The Whale Bar, Maldives

 

Oh, kittens. We want to go to there. We ALL want to go to there right now. Well, the ride is free, the light is flattering and the drinks are on us, so belly on up to the bar or find yourself a comfy seat and settle in. How are you doing? What are you doing? And if you feel like you’re not doing the best job in the world of holding it all together, know that you are in very good company at the moment. As in, everyone else is just trying to hold it together too. Just look at how bad a job Vanessa Hudgens is doing. That’ll make you feel better about your own foibles and fumbles.

Here are some time-wasters for you, carefully selected and curated by your erudite, worldly hosts.

The Choctaw Nation’s Gift to the Irish

On March 23, 1847, a group of Choctaw leaders and others met in eastern Oklahoma to raise money for “the relief of the starving poor in Ireland.” They collected $170, which was sent first to the Memphis Irish Relief Committee, then to the General Irish Relief Committee of the City of New York. This gift from an American Indian nation was recognized as extraordinary even at that time; the chairman of the New York committee mentioned it specifically in reports to the Central Relief Committee in Ireland.
