What’s the Scoop?, an ice cream shop in Portland, chose Planned Parenthood as its donation recipient during July; then, a pro-life website picked up the ... Read More

July 23rd, 2011 was the day that we lost an extraordinary musical icon. We lost Amy Winehouse to alcohol poisoning, and it shook the music industry and the world to its core.

Two weeks ago, La Guardia airport's terminal D was the equivalent of Apocalypse Now, with D standing for Doom, Delays and Deficient A/C. I was trying to fly back to my hometown for a mini-vacation to no avail, with Tropical Storm Arthur being all sassy-like, moving up the East Coast like he owned it and canceling flight after flight. My number of failed standby attempts was matched only by the number of overpriced dirty martinis I drank in the terminal bar ... Read More

Though our nation’s tradition of beauty pageants has been hotly debated as being both pro/anti woman, one Idaho beauty queen is using her platform to de-stigmatize the insulin pump for those affected with diabetes.
