Barbie and I have a very complex relationship. The angry feminist side of me always wants to say, "Eff you, Barbie! I don't have to be pink and pretty and have big boobs and a tiny waist!

"I always wanted to be a writer," she told the crowd gathered to hear her read last night.  Cash was introducing her new book at Barnes & Noble's "Upstairs at the Square," an ... Read More
