Scott Mendelson | Posted 01.09.2013 | Entertainment
Scott Mendelson

As a look into how politics worked in the mid-1800s, and of course how it still works today, Lincoln is surprisingly funny and endlessly compelling.

Suzanne Braun Levine | Posted 10.15.2012 | Fifty
Suzanne Braun Levine

The fact that Meryl Streep's new movie "Hope Springs" opened and Helen Gurley Brown died in the same week seems to me a passing of a very important baton. The baton our Post50 generation needs to get us moving toward an honest and candid discussion about sex.
