Despite public outcry, Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery said Wednesday he will move forward with the felony child abuse prosecution of Shanesha Taylor, the jobless mom whose Scottsdale arrest has drawn national attention and prompted calls for Taylor to receive assistance rather than punishment. 

Attorney Bill Montgomery’s office received a petition on Tuesday with 12,000 signatures asking for Shanesha’s charges to be dropped. "First, they weren’t signatures; they were just a list of names," Montgomery said, referring to a printout from the website. "So I don’t know whether any of the individuals in their pajamas who logged on to the site and put their name on there really had a clue of all the circumstances involved in this particular case.

Apparently signatures aren’t good enough, let’s call County Attorney Bill Montgomery’s office & tell him to drop the charges against Shanesha Taylor —-> (602) 506-3411

PLEASE call this number and leave a comment. As someone with anxiety myself I know how hard it can be to call people you don’t know but PLEASE let them know that prosecuting Shanesha Taylor is unacceptable. 

It was really hard for me to pick up the phone, but this is unacceptable. 

This is the rehearsal hall where, in a few short hours, we will read aloud the final episode of season ten. There will be tears. The joyous tears you weep when you are grateful for a particular experience. The bittersweet ones that carry in them the realization you share a touchstone moment with the very people you adore. And, of course, the tears of heartbreak you shed when time refuses to stand still and coldly forces you on, carrying people-shaped holes in your life.  We share them all. And we will be thankful. #GAyearbook

The fruit of our labor is fantastic mix of old and new - we gutted the radio (see the bits above?), and sheared off the front panel. We fashioned a simple track from aluminum and wood, reinforced the frame, sanded & stained the wood and VOILA!! A media console I lurve made with memories I cherish!

PASSERBY 1: Wow, that’s a lot of flowers!

PASSERBY 2: She’s having a WEDDING!!

ME: No, no. No. I’m having pizza.

I’m sorry that we will not get to see Leah grow into her own fully fleshed character, because there was a lot of potential there. In particular, her blossoming friendship with Stephanie was a really lovely part of the show.

-Dana Piccoli/Afterellen, "What I always found fascinating about Leah Murphy was her ability to make me care about her, even while I struggled to find her likable. I think that is a testament to Tessa Ferrer’s skills as an actress and the way her character was written."

Goodbye Leah, I’ll miss your chin dimple most of all.”
