By | Boston Daily |

Lady Gaga, Oprah at Harvard Today for Born This Way Foundation Launch. The Foundation, which will be led by Lady Gaga (real name: Stefani Germanotta) and mama Gaga (real name: Cynthia Germanotta), was created in partnership with Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society, The California Foundation, and the John D. and Catherine T. McArthur Foundation. BTWF’s mission is to address “self-confidence, well-being, anti-bullying, mentoring and career development,” but some LGBTQ groups on Harvard’s campus feel somewhat slighted by the under-wraps, invite-only access to the event.

A Fascinating Look at Romney’s Daddy Issues. If we want to know why Romey is the way he is, just look to his dad, George. Believe it or not, Mitt’s gaffes don’t measure up to his dad’s. Tom McNichol details the parallels: “Both Mitt and George Romney parlayed square-jawed good looks and a successful career in business into becoming the Republican presidential candidate who keeps saying the wrong thing.” [The Atlantic]

One Great Reason Why ‘K’ Has No Place in Words Like ‘Clever.’ A menu typist for at four Methuen schools tried to get cheeky with the spelling of crispy, crunchy chicken tenders … but somehow listing the item as KKK chicken tenders instead. Obviously, everyone is stunned and apologizing for the error, but the real kicker is that a student — a snot-nosed third grader, we hope — correctly pointed out to WCVB that it’d be a non-issue if the typist had spelled the words correctly, with the letter C, from the beginning.
