(I'll always let working-class sl… @gobsmackled I admit, I do like a honours list. (And I always look at them--just in case I'm on it.)Dame Julie Walters, Dame June Whitfield. Good picks, queenie!

Wondering if David Dimbleby's "bloody hell" (re Renfrewshire East) was YouTube Live bonus audio. @magary So if I am silent for a long time and then speak for a while and then go silent again, you will feel at home?More Welsh being heard in the US tonight since, well, ever. (Though even I can hear that some of these accents are awful.) @TaraAriano Three generations of his family in political journalism. David and his dad have done election night coverage for decades. @TaraAriano Richard Quest is no Dimbleby. @TaraAriano Phew!Can I blame Trump for having to watch CNN's off-brand UK election coverage? I guess Congress is too hot for C-SPAN to cut away from.**Call for Pitches!** @SlateOutward will publish a special pkg on "visibility" for Pride. Details/guidelines here:

@Panger2017 @TheAmericansFX @joel_fields @joeweisberg So kind! Thank you! @damianstack I don't do drugs, but I imagine the experience is similar to binging Sense8, especially Season 1. @svo1905 Glorious Gowanus! (That strikes me as a very kind view of the place!) @damianstack I'll allow it.I'm so sad about Sense8!
