Here are some headlines from this week and, no, I did not actually try to get anyone to write about them and, yes, I should probably change the title and premise of this weekly links round-up.

I saw that some of the early Open Thread commenters were already talking about the Duggars (did I spell that right?) news. So in addition to that, I hope this little Saturday list below gives you something to talk about, throw shade at, or sigh heavily over. Go to it:

Maggie Gyllenhaal was told she, at 37, looks too old to play a 55-year-old actor's love interest. [CNN]

Here's where to go to submit your story ideas for us. I would personally love it if you did.
