Media Still Can’t Stop Talking About Princess Diana

Today was all about Diana. Or you’d be forgiven for inferring as much, seeing as this media covering her son’s nuptials couldn’t stop dropping her name. We rose before the sun this morning and sat through hours of ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox News, MSNBC, CNN, and E! News, and Lady Di’s name rang more persistently than the bells of Westminster. See for yourself. More »

The Most Badass Lady In Congress

How Far Have You Gone For A Condom?

This is a tough time for contraception. Every day brings news of Republican elected officials working ferociously to limit access to it for anyone who isn’t wealthy.

I Don’t Need Kathryn Stockett’s “Help”

I’ve been around for the better part of three decades, and not ONCE has a white person provided me with some sort of salvation. I feel shortchanged. There was no teacher who saw something in me, no employer who defended my rights and no white family who kindly took me into their home.

Saying “thank you” may seem simple, but giving really heartfelt thanks can be complicated. Should you call or write? What should you say in a thank-you note? How can you show how much someone’s help meant to you? Today we answer these questions and more. More »
