- Drag queen: ” I got to read to the children today and it was one of the best experiences I’ve been given”
The Michelle Obama Public Library in Long Beach, California hosted a satanic looking drag queen on Saturday to read to little kids for the library’s celebration of LGBTQ History Month.
The drag queen Xochi Mochi posted the same photo to his Instagram account and commented on Twitter about the event. His Twitter bio reads, “Attention Earthlings: This is Xochi Mochi your resident killer Klown from outer space. I dress up in drags and love tacos.”

What? Obama presidential library won’t have hard-copy manuscripts and letters and other documents onsite. The decision has historians scratching their heads.
Fox News report:
The Obama Foundation is taking an unconventional approach to the presidential center and library being planned in Chicago. It’s opting to host a digital archive of President Barack Obama’s records, but not keep his hard-copy manuscripts and letters and other documents onsite.
That means no thumbing through the ex-president’s correspondence on the health care fight or first drafts of his State of the Union addresses.
The decision has historians scratching their heads.
“All archivists are waiting to see how this will work, because we are all struggling with how to make things available digitally,” Peggy Glowacki, a manuscripts librarian at the Richard J. Daley Library at the University of Illinois at Chicago, told the Chicago Tribune.
