the don't-send-your-daughter-to-college people and the gun nuts in Missouri, so here's a nice palate cleanser, plus all-around moment of d'awwww.

On Facebook, I follow this awesome bluegrass/jug/folk band called the Carolina Chocolate Drops, and this picture showed up on my newsfeed tonight. The woman is the lead singer, and her name is Rhiannon Giddens. I haven't gone to one of their shows in a while, but based on what I know about her/the band, I would not be at all surprised to learn she takes her infant son with her on the road. I just love this picture, and I thought I'd share it here.
