Ode to Pizza! + Warning Labels on Photoshopped Ads Bill

HAPPY VETERANS' DAY! Thank you veterans!

SO, a part of this post is about pizza! Pizza is amazing. That's why I put it on my "What Reminds Me Of Jesus" poster for Theology class! I'm normal.

New Haven is renowned for its crime pizza. My favorite pizza in New Haven is this place called "Modern Apizza." And boy oh boy is it amazing!
photos by me (they're from the summer, that's why the leaves are green!) 
If you guys ever for some reason come to New Haven, you must come to Modern. It is divine. I can't emphasize it enough. 

On another train of thought, have you guys heard about that bill about putting "warning labels" on ads, like fashion ads, that are Photoshopped? If you have, can you tell me what bill number it is, because man the Senate website is NOT user friendly. 

ALAS! It's called The Self-Esteem Act, and it is awesome! I don't really know much about it yet, but what I do know is that it's pretty much brand new. I don't think it's written yet. We have to get this show on the road! 

Why this bill would be amazing if it passed:
  • 7 million girls have eating disorders. Do we even need to go into the reasons why?
  • It's false advertising. 
  • My 7 year old cousin always calls herself fat and wishes she was skinnier constantly, despite my family and I constantly telling her that she's beautiful, which she is. I just wish that somebody BESIDES us would tell her that those pictures of "beautiful" women are fake. 
What do you guys think? Pizza is amazing right? Are you in favor of this bill? Why or why not?
