  Opinion: Pressure lands on Augusta National chairman Fred Ridley as Georgia's voting law scrutinized Augusta National chair Fred Ridley will be asked about Georgia's controversial voting law that some say will restrict voting access to people of colorMostly, it has succeeded. When the real world demanded more, the club acquiesced, eventually. There are Black members now, and women, but not many. This is still almost exclusively a white man’s playground, which makes the confluence of events at this moment in the state in which it is located all the more fascinating.

Policy changes help drive US migrant crossings to new highs

  Policy changes help drive US migrant crossings to new highs BROWNSVILLE, Texas (AP) — Paying a smuggler, Edgar Mejia could afford to take only one child with him to the United States. He chose his 3-year-old “warrior” son, leaving his 7- and 12-year-olds with their mother in Honduras. “Pitifully, I had use him like a passport to get here,” Mejia said last week after picking up milk from volunteers at a Brownsville, Texas, bus station for the last leg of their journey to join relatives in Atlanta. “I am here because of him.” Mejia, 32, and his son, who paid a smuggler $6,000 for a “new dream” that Honduras couldn't provide, are among the Border Patrol's nearly 170,000 encounters with migrants on the U.S.

Franzese opened up about his friendship with the pop star in an interview with Insider for the 17th anniversary of "Mean Girls," the film that also inspired Grande's "Thank U, Next" music video.

The actor said that they had been mutual friends via Instagram years prior to Grande's global stardom thanks to his role as Damian in "Mean Girls" and she made an adjustment to her merch after a conversation with him.

In 2018, Grande released merchandise in support of her track "No Tears Left to Cry" from her album "Sweetener." She sent sweaters to influences and Franzese didn't get one, but he decided to buy one himself "because she's so supportive of me."

They didn't carry his size, so he mentioned it the next time they spoke. Franzese said that she immediately asked for his size so she could get him a sweater, then went a step further and expanded all her merch to 3XL to accommodate more fans.

Franzese also told Insider that when Grande came up with the concept for her "TUN" video, she asked him to take part in it.

But the filming date kept shifting and eventually, the shoot date conflicted with the early dates of his comedy tour. He wanted to be part of the video but had already committed to his tour, so he asked Grande for a rain check.

Franzese said that he "loved" the music video, which included "Mean Girls" star Jonathan Bennett reprising his role as Aaron Samuels.

The actor also said that he isn't sure what his part in the video would have involved, but it might have shown him wearing the hoodie and sunglasses from his iconic "she doesn't even go here" moment in the auditorium.

"It would have been fun to be a part of, yes," Franzese said. "But I also feel like there's so much want for me to reprise that character, that if I was going to do it, it would have to be on-screen. It would have to be something big."

The actor said that if he were to portray Damian again, he'd want to move the character's story forward in some significant way.

"There's a danger," he said. "That character really is part of my identity. Everybody knows me for it. So, I have to be careful with that, too. I don't want to name anybody, but I've seen other actors from other movies repeat their character in places and it kind of hurt them. There's just something about it that's so sacred."
