Pro-Choice or Pro-Life: Graphic TV Ad Should Be Illegal

Pro-Choice or Pro-Life: Graphic TV Ad Should Be Illegal

I don’t write about politics here. I barely discuss politics among my friends and family. But I have my views. I am unwavering about quite a few issues. And I know who I’m voting for. I share my views with my kids. Not because I want them to parrot me but because I want them...

I Live You (Texting Fail)

I admit it. I would rather exchange texts with you than talk to you on the phone. It’s not because I don’t care about you. (I’m not singling anybody out here. Just using the plural “you”.) It’s just that texting is to the point and extremely efficient.  And I can do it while I’m using...
