It's like we're all just a series of random shapes, dangling from strings, spinning endlessly around. Sure, you can call it a mobile, but where are they going? Where are any of us really? Especially when you can't even control your neck. Or roll over.

At the end of the day, it's about what you eat most of the time. It's about your overall eating habits, not a single food or a single meal. But the problem with these lists is that instead of informing people, they simply spread fear.

Ronda Lee

Not since John Leguizamo's Ghetto Klown have I been this entertained. I was so enthralled with Joseph Assadourian's performance in The Bullpen that I gladly became a repeat offender, three times. He has received accolades as one of the top 20 Off-Broadway shows of 2014.

Dogs get the value of cuddling for its own sake. They like to snuggle up to you while you read in bed and while you polish your toenails and while you talk on the phone, and this is actually -- get this -- all they want.

I can't get away with reading young adult novels (sorry Katniss), I can't get away with binge drinking, I probably shouldn't have roommates and I'll never be one of Forbes' "30 under 30". On February 6th, 2015, I am officially 30 years old. Ew.

The most important element of comedy is timing -- and in Israel, comedy and timing can be friends or they can be foes. No matter how funny the election campaign videos are, we live in a serious, disastrous neighborhood, and sometimes the reality calls for seriousness.

Kevin Thornton

With each passing moment, I step further away from the scared little boy, overly-concerned with surface mannerisms, and closer to the wise old man who has embraced the diversity of our people. I'm not all the way there yet, but it's the direction I'm heading.
