I am generally not a fan of gender-based "science"- that thing that says we can't parallel park or ask for pay raises- but two of these kinds of news articles about men came out this week that, in tandem, create quite a convincing body of evidence that men are, for lack of a better word, wimpy. First up: according to science, men tend to exaggerate sickness more than women. Dubbed the "man flu syndrome," men are more likely to describe a cold as a flu, or a ... Read More
                      Twelve states had their primary elections Tuesday night and voters across the country really pulled for their female candidates.  But unless you’re a Republican, I wouldn’t get too excited.  In Nevada, Tea Party favorite Sharron Angle beat out the 13 other Republican candidates eager to face off against Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid in November.  ABC ...

Quieter numbers like the original composition `Little Fire' and the Gospel classic `Waiting For My Child To Come Home' ... Read More

Yesterday I caught Samantha Bee promoting her new book – I Know I Am, But What Are You? – as part of the Bryant Park Reading Series, only there was no reading going on. Apparently her material was deemed unsuitable for loudspeakers in a public venue. From the opening grafs alone (a homicidal fantasy involving her parents and musings on a family history of sluttery), I suspect it may have been the right decision. Amen and Hallelujah! Have you not yet ... Read More
