The movie that struck me most this year was The Last Mile, a film that centers on the Internet - or to be precisely accurate ... an attention-grabbing total lack of it.
Dorothy Rothschild was 21 and living on the Upper West Side of Manhattan when she mailed a letter that changed her life. It happened 100 years ago, sometime in early 1915. The moment set the scene for her to become Dorothy Parker.
It warmed my heart when the Times Style section sent a writer to Missouri to chronicle George Hodgman's ongoing adventure with his mother. In my corner of Facebook, George is beloved. The bestseller list awaits.
The beautiful 18-year old Disney starlet Zendaya looked absolutely ravishing at the Acadamy Awards in her satin ivory Vivienne Westwood gown and her elegant dreadlocked hairstyle. But Giuliana Rancic of E! Fashion Police did not agree.
Throughout generations and cultures, personal tales have long been an agent for transformation. Primarily because they contribute to society's narrat...
Kevin Sessums may just be the absolute best person on the planet to take as a companion to an event -- any event -- be it a fancy Broadway premiere, your sister's wedding or a seedy afterhours bar. Of this, I'm quite sure.
When I think of a stress test, I imagine a patient in a doctor's office, running on a treadmill, with tons of sensor patches connected all over the ch...

I was delighted to uncover the names and stories of the other members of the Vicious Circle, women that had fascinating and full lives.
Have you ever said to a girlfriend, "He's such a great guy; but when I'm with him, I don't feel any passion." Or, "She's really pretty but she just doesn't turn me on." Or, "I meet so many boring men, why can't I meet one who excites me?"
