Enjoy these clips! With a 90% termination rate for the prenatal diagnosis of Downs, we just won't be seeing people with Downs very often. That makes me sad. »
Agreed. I hear people talking constantly about programs on television, and I can't fathom how they sit through that drivel. I can hardly watch 10 minutes before turning the station to PBS or HGTV. Like Suburgatory, Two and a half men and others, it's like it's been written for complete derelicts. I'm dumbfounded as to… »
Cue the "LIBERAL BIAS OF ACADEMIA" argument.
That means, pull up "LIBERAL BIAS OF MEDIA" arguments. Swap "academia" for "media." Feign outrage. Wave flag. Say "Constitution" five times. Build "they'll take away our guns" straw man. Done! »

I'm a big, big fan of the "You are worth the wait" campaign. That is so much better than sending the message: "Girl, if you do it, you'll be a dirty ho that everyone thinks is gross."
I feel the same way about the pro-life movement. Their "Life is a beautiful choice" campaign is so much better than "Abortion=murder."

Bette Midler has a good point. Shame is what kept me honest. I wasn't afraid of getting into trouble; I feared disappointing/embarrassing my family. Shame—let's bring it back. »
I went back to work at 6 weeks. I always thought that "in a few months" I could work fewer hours, be home for more playmates or maybe even cut back to three days per week. It never happened. I had two weeks of vacation per year, and that was the only time I could have breakfast and lunch with my little one.
Last fall, I… »
Crap Town—DETROIT? Motor City road trip music—choose Motown, Madonna, Eminem, White Stripes, etc. Crap Town, Detroit? Fuck off! »
