I might be a huge freak for this

but I can't help it. I used to wear a watch on my left wrist. But now that I wear engagement/wedding rings on my left hand, I just cannot stand to wear a watch too. It feels so unbalanced! » 3/09/15 4:29pm 3/09/15 4:29pm

Today's clueless racist relatives moment

My best friend and her mom are Black, and they attended our small wedding last weekend. Obviously it follows that they are in several of our pictures, including some very staged group shots. » 2/15/15 3:39pm 2/15/15 3:39pm

Atlantic - Life in the Sickest Town in America

Just...read it. I had to stop part way through to stop myself from tearing up at my desk. These issues are so deeply personal to me. I live in that rich county, but I'm from a place that in many ways resembles that poor county and would be in the same place if not for the fortune of being close enough to Pittsburgh to… » 1/22/15 9:46am 1/22/15 9:46am

Yoga question!

Last week I tried yoga for the first time and did it a second time yesterday. I'm really not a big fan so far. The hippy-dippy nature of it is just so not me, but one of my biggest issues physically is downward dog pose. » 1/21/15 1:30pm 1/21/15 1:30pm

Good guide to talking points/fact on Ferguson/Garner etc.?

Has anyone seen a good, to-the-point compilation of talking points, statistics, etc. related to Ferguson, Eric Garner, and police brutality/racism in general? I've read lots and lots of longer stuff on it, but I'm looking for something concise that I can review in case this comes up at holiday festivities with my… » 12/08/14 10:17am 12/08/14 10:17am

It's Schicksalstag!

November 9 is termed the "fateful day" because of its significance in German history. These five events happened on that date: the execution of Robert Blum in 1848, the end of the monarchies in 1918, the Hitler putsch attempt in 1923, the pogromes in 1938 (Kristallnacht), and the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989. » 11/09/14 9:03am 11/09/14 9:03am
