Empty shoes, empty schools: U.S. gun law activists plan two days of theater – Bette Midler & Susan Sarandon Lend Their Support
Empty shoes, empty schools: U.S. gun law activists plan two days of theater
By Ian Simpson
WASHINGTON, March 13 (Reuters) – A makeshift memorial made up of 7,000 pairs of shoes will take shape on the lawn of the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday, as gun control activists dramatize the number of children killed in the United States by gunfire since the 2012 Sandy Hook school massacre.
The monument is being built on the day before a massive, nationwide walkout by students demanding tougher laws on gun ownership, part of a campaign that emerged after the killing of 17 students and staff at a Florida high school a month ago.

It could be argued that there is no one better at social media than Kim Kardashian. After all, she—along with the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan—has it largely to thank for her meteoric rise to stardom. So when the reality TV star turned beauty and media mogul posts something on any one of her channels, it is never without intention. Such is the case with one of her latest Snapchat photos which offers a brief—albeit screen shot-worthy—list of people Kardashian plans on sending her newly launched KKW Kimoji Hearts Fragrances to.

Mister D: I can pretty much safely say that Bette Midler does not hate Kim K. Is she ripe fodder for jokes? Yes!

New Castle News Weekend
August 28, 1993
BURGETTSTOWN â€” BetteÂ Midlerâ€™s tour, â€œ Experience theÂ Divine,â€™â€™ stopped at the CocaColaÂ Star Lake Amphitheater onÂ Monday with a show that is biggerÂ than ever.
In addition to her three excellentÂ backup singers, theÂ Harlettes, she also had four otherÂ girls, a full band and an excellentÂ jazz pianist, Bobby Lyle.
Favorite songs and charactersÂ were given fresh twists andÂ blended with new material.
Singing well but with a voiceÂ that seemed a bit tired fromÂ overwork, she, nevertheless,Â didnâ€™t disappoint on the melancholyÂ â€œ Delta Dawnâ€ and â€œ Hello in Thereâ€ nor the haunting â€œ TheÂ Rose.â€ She had fans singingÂ along on â€œ Do you WannaÂ Dance,â€ â€œ From a Distanceâ€ andÂ â€œ Wind Beneath My Wings.â€
One favorite character, MadameÂ Sophie, the brassy, trashy,Â 80-year-old ex-showgirl, pleasedÂ the crowd with old and newÂ bawdy stories about her boyfriend,Â Ernie. The character isÂ based on Sophie Tucker, a loud,Â blonde music hall entertainerÂ from the 1920s with a touch ofÂ Mae Westâ€™s style of delivery.
The other crowd favorite isÂ Midlerâ€™s Dolores Del Lago, whomÂ she has described as â€œ a Â womanÂ of tremendous ambition and absolutelyÂ no pride at all, a womanÂ of tremendous determination andÂ absolutely no skill, a woman ofÂ the grandest notions and not theÂ simplest hint of taste.â€
She and her backup singersÂ (the Harlettes double as the DelLago Sisters) dress in blue-sequinedÂ halters (with starfish IÂ wonâ€™t say where) and mermaidÂ tails. They do all their musicalÂ numbers from wheelchairs. ItÂ was in this way they did â€œ BoogieÂ Woogie Bugle Boy,â€ â€œ AnchorsÂ Aweigh,â€ â€œ Greatest Love Of Allâ€Â and, the funniest, â€œ New York,Â New Yorkâ€ with a high kicking Rockette finish done in the tailÂ fins from the wheelchairs linedÂ up across the stage.
The meaning of the single largeÂ rose in the middle of the stageÂ curtain became clear at the endÂ of Act I. Surely, I thought, sheâ€™sÂ not harkening back to her 1979Â triumph as the self-destructiveÂ rock singer in â€œ The Rose.â€ SheÂ wasnâ€™t.
Sheâ€™s working on another characterÂ named Rose, a role createdÂ by Ethel Merman in the originalÂ Broadway production of â€œ Gypsy.â€
Rose is the mother of two littleÂ girls who become stars on theÂ vaudeville circuit. The one, JuneÂ Haver, went on later to a film actingÂ career while the other becameÂ the most successful stripperÂ in America, Gypsy Rose Lee.
Midler and company did several skits based on stripping, andÂ she sang songs from the show,Â â€œ Every Thingâ€™s Coming UpÂ Rosesâ€ and â€œ Roseâ€™s Turn.â€ EvenÂ though the skits were funny andÂ her rendition of the songs excellent,Â this part of the show seemedÂ like a commercial for the movie.
But the audience didnâ€™t mind.
In fact, one man was so overwhelmedÂ after the show was overÂ and the audience was Â inching towardÂ the exits, he shouted, â€œNowÂ that was a show, that was aÂ show.”

Another detail has been confirmed about Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards: There will be no one to host the entire event.
After small details such as the Amy Winehouse honor by Tony Bennett, a Britney Spears tribute section and a Lady Gaga performance, another detail has surfaced that the event will run sans a host. The rumor was confirmed by MTV’s vice president for music and talent, Amy Doyle. Past hosts have included comedienne Chelsea Handler and British actor Russell Brand.
