Tweet of the Day: Ronan Farrow, the 24-year-old sole biological child of Woody Allen and Mia Farrow, has never been a fan of his father’s marriage to Soon-Yi Previn, who is also Ronan Farrow’s adopted sister.

I would have been fine going through life without seeing some of the things I just saw.
I live in the middle of the city (Denver Metro) and have a six-foot privacy fence surrounding my yard, yet a deer managed to get back there. The deer apparently jumped the fence and was less than ten feet from my back door. My poor dog was on the other side of the yard hiding under a tree.
I opened the gate to allow it to leave but instead it jumped the fence.
