It's Friday! Time for your Burnt Orange Reporters to comment on all the news that fits in a blockquote.

First up this week, we doubt you missed it, but. This:

::

    Kudos to former BOR staffer Shelby Alexander for her work to oust anti-woman Eden Foods from Wheatsville Food Co-Op! Shelby collected enough petition signatures to force the vote. The Austin Chronicle has more.

    I have discovered a new favorite thing on the internet, and I need to share it with EVERYONE. It's The Anti-Diet Project on Refinery 29, and it is brilliant. From fatkinis to intuitive eating to deconstructing assumptions about what exercise should be (spoiler alert: it doesn't have to feel like punishment to count), Kelsey Miller tackles it all as she publicly shares her own journey to “reasonable fitness.” As Miller explains, “I don't want to waste any more of my life not seeing my own loveliness.” Talk about a worthwhile goal.

    As news from Ferguson, Missouri continues to shock and horrify the country, RH Reality Check reminds us that police brutality isn't just happening somewhere else – it is happening here.

    Gotta Love it! The uber-hip hangout Cheer Up Charlie's took full advantage of the Gov. Perry indictment/mugshot party market by creating two drinks to celebrate with. From their Facebook: “Grab your friends, come jabber about politics tonight at Cheer Ups. We are celebrating Perry's impending imPEACH-mint with Peach lemonade & mint leaf garnish cocktails- “The Rick Perry-dise” made to order”
