You know the adage, the personal is political? I’m feeling, particularly in the last few months, that the world of politics is infiltrating my personal life. That I wake up with my face shaped like Edvard Munch’s Ghoul. Do you feel that way? Is there a way to separate what is happening in Washington from what’s happening within you?

That’s my question, really. I don’t have the answer yet. If you do, let me know.

Mary Tyler Moore. For those of us who came of age in the 60’s and 70’s, Mary Tyler Moore embodied the girl who was going to make it after all. Rest In Peace.

Hillary wants us to keep it going.

Roxane Gay continues to be my heroine.

When you’re 82 and become rich AF. Way to go Yoshiko Shinohara.

Here’s my Transitions conversation with the great Nina Lorez Collins.

A petition to Stop the Personhood Bill  (Bill HR 586)! Here is what the Bill sets out to do: “This bill declares that: (1) the right to life guaranteed by the Constitution is vested in each human and is a person’s most fundamental right; (2) each human life begins with fertilization, cloning, or its equivalent, at which time every human has all the legal and constitutional attributes and privileges of personhood; and (3) Congress, each state, the District of Columbia, and each U.S. territory have the authority to protect all human lives.” Nope, nope, nope.

Working outside the home continues to be a precarious balance for women.

Male entitlement and the complex web of the pop charts. (aka misogyny!)

And now have a laugh with Mary Mack.
