Herald Price Fahringer had always loomed large in my imagination. What self-respecting journalist wouldn't want to find themselves as the defendant in a First Amendment case?
I am in smack dab in the middle of perimenopause, the transition of a woman's body into menopause. Every woman's journey to the land of no menses is different. This is how mine has been going.
