Josh Duggar Shows Why We Should Not Minimize Molestation

Some people are downright gleeful that the Duggars’ aren’t so perfect and are celebrating their "fall from grace." Did I miss something? We are talking about a young man who molested young girls, right? Who cares how it makes his family look? What about his victims? ...more

The Internet Created the Vulgar Meme #FHRITP. TV Reporter Shauna Hunt Fought Back

I was once a TV news reporter, and I know there’s always an element of unpredictability in live broadcasts, but there's a trend (not going to say it, check the hash tag #FHRITP) that's shocking— not only in how crude it is, but in how unapologetic its perpetrators are. ...more

5 reasons you should watch CSI:Cyber (the Best Worst Show on TV)

Yes, I know this show is terrible. It’s probably the worst thing I’ve ever seen on TV. But, God help me, I also love it. It gives me the same self-indulgent feeling as getting stuck into a bag of BBQ chips, if chips had the power to make me laugh hysterically at their poor construction. So really, this show is infinitely better than a bag of chips...which might just be the highest praise I’ve ever bestowed upon anything. So without further ado, here are the top 5 reasons that you, too, should indulge in CSI:Cyber. ...more

Talk, Chat, Tweet * Gemini Sun 5/21/15!

On Thursday May 21, 2015, the Sun bounces into the fun, flirty, focus challenged, flexible, flighty third sign of the Zodiac. The natural versatility of Gemini, with its willingness to adapt, keeps the wrinkles, both mental and physical, at bay. While under its influence, we will feel encouraged, regardless of birth sign, to teach, learn, meet and greet, read and write, chat too much/gossip too much and try to be in two places at once (that Castor/Pollux, “twins” thing). And don’t forget travel, whether it be real or arm chair, the search for greener grass will be enticing....more

Mercury Retrograde, 5/18/15 – YAY! !

No, I haven’t lost my grip. Instead of bemoaning Monday’s arrival of Mercury Retrograde, in Gemini, the Air sign it rules, as the  potential snafu of all time, I’m changing my approach. I will look on the good side. Rather than rushing, yelling and screaming, to my computer to “back it up” before the sky falls, I will make good use of whatever positive energy the universe will provide during the communication planet’s backward sojourn thru the heavens....more
