It's been the buzz of the blogosphere for the past few weeks, but Mail Goggles--Google's experimental anti-drunk-email service--yesterday got some major-media lip service via a New York Times article that touts it as an answer to the wee-hour drunken email problem they call a scourge that few knew existed. And by few, they must mean pretty much everyone but us. But I digress.
Here's the skinny, if you don't already know: between the hours of 10 p.m. and 4 a.m., ... Read More

Okay, that's it--I am now officially in love with Summer Rayne Oakes. Let me count the ways: Her modeling work is totally activist-based.

Okay, fine, maybe it's slightly early to start gushing about Halloween goodies, but cut me some slack here: I've had my costume planned since June (Winona Ryder at the very end of Heathers), and I started compiling a list of sweet spooky stuff sometime around August.

It's not news that women in Washington (particularly those truly on the world stage) are scrutinized for their clothing, but I'm a little confused by Robin Givhan's Washington Post story about Palin's so-called ordinary style. Givhan is known for her no-nonsense fashion criticism of the political elite--whether or not that's responsible or even necessary is up to you--but this one just seems like a redux. Givhan waxes aesthetic for several paragraphs about Palin's ... Read More
