Today marks "Equal Pay Day," the day when women's pay finally catches up to men's pay from last year. You'll have to forgive me for not cheering too loudly. Each year Equal Pay Day highlights how far we still have to go in the fight for pay equity, and it's striking how little headway has been made on closing the gap in recent years, with progress all but stagnating in the past decade. Across the board, women continue to be paid less than their male counterparts -- a fact that takes on new significance in an election year where the views of the Republican presidential candidates on the gender pay gap range from dismissive to downright hostile.

The War of the Roses, 25 Years Later

I am astonished at the staying power of The War of the Roses, which takes a rather dark view on the end of a marriage, and what the process itself does to people. People I meet are convinced that the story is autobiographical.

Movie Review: The Perfect Family

Marshall Fine | Posted 05.04.2012 | Entertainment
Marshall Fine

Don't trust the trailers for Anne Renton's The Perfect Family. They make it look like an irreverent, iconoclastic satire, one that attacks hypocrisy among the pious -- like something from the Farrelly brothers or, perhaps, John Waters.
