Bankruptcy for Robert Kennedy Publishing?!

Day's that something exciting arrives in the mail are pretty few and far between around here, but there's one thing I always look forward to- the day my Oxygen magazine arrives! I'm sure it sounds rather lame, but after four weeks I find myself craving the next issue.

I Went to High School With Charles Ramsey, Cleveland's New Hero

I went to high school with Charles Ramsey, one of the men credited for helping to rescue Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight, three Cleveland women who had been missing for 10 years.

How Mitt Romney Has Empowered Women

"Baby, law isn't a good profession for girls," my father told me. "Stay with music, dear, that is what you and your people do so well," my high school dean said. I was 16, and asking them the most important question of my life:  Will you tell me how to become a lawyer? ...more

This morning Republican Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney will announce Paul Ryan as his running mate and in doing so appears to be declaring war against everything that the Democratic Party stands for. With the choice of Paul Ryan, Romney will not only be exacerbating the culture wars, but he appears to have set his sights on two of the great presidents of the Twentieth Century: FDR (The New Deal) and LBJ (The Great Society), indeed, the great shift of the Twentieth Century back to the people....more
