Michael Podell | April 19, 2015 | Gay Voices
Of all the queens to come out of RuPaul's Drag Race, there are very few as universally loved and revered as Latrice Royale. I caught up with Latrice during some of her very rare free time to chat about what's new in her life and her thoughts on the past and future of drag.

Why My Daughter Never Got A Trampoline For Her Birthday

Teresa Kindred | April 19, 2015 | Fifty
From the time my daughter was old enough to jump up and down, she asked for a trampoline every year for her birthday. She never got one and there are four very good reasons why. While she made it through childhood relatively unscathed, she had four brothers who each thought they were Superman.

A step forward in Washington, a step back in New York

Randi Weingarten | April 19, 2015 | Education
Something stunning happened this week in Congress. The Senate's Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee voted 22-0 to overhaul No Child Left Behind. That's right, policymakers from Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) listened to the people...

Why Parents Shouldn't Stalk Their Children On Social Media

Sharon Greenthal | April 19, 2015 | Fifty
Pain is an essential lesson for the emotional leap from childhood to adulthood. Mothers shouldn't be able to see photos in real time that capture their children when they're at their worst -- whether because of too much alcohol or too little happiness. We can, after all, sense when "something is not right," just from a photograph.

7 Questions You Need To Answer Before You Turn 65

Diane Archer | April 19, 2015 | Fifty
Do you need to sign up for Medicare? It depends on whether you have employer coverage and what kind you have. If you do need Medicare, enrollment is generally automatic if you have signed up for Social Security. You may also need to sign up for supplemental coverage.

Miami Art, Not Miami Vice, Attracts Aficionados

Magda Abu-Fadil | April 19, 2015 | Arts
Two people walk into a bar...and find an exquisite Sir Henry Moore marble sculpture mounted on a pedestal in a fountain adorning a five-star hotel lobby's atrium. Not your typical joke punch line, but then Miami has long transcended the Miami Vice TV police series reputation...

Sunday Roundup

Arianna Huffington | April 19, 2015 | Politics
This week, Americans fulfilled part of our responsibility to our government by filing taxes. But the government isn't doing its part in return. First, as a new report by the National Taxpayer Advocate showed, the IRS has been crippled by years of budget cuts, resulting in a "devastating erosion of taxpayer service" and filing misery for millions. Hold times, which were under three minutes in 2004, are now over 30 minutes. This isn't smaller government; it's broken government, which, for many budget-slashing legislators, is the point. In more news from dysfunctional D.C., Attorney General-Designate Loretta Lynch remains in limbo, her nomination held hostage by Senate Republicans for over five months. On Friday, a clearly frustrated President Obama demanded, "Call Loretta Lynch for a vote...This is embarrassing." Meanwhile, the bigger "news" was the breathless scoop of Hillary Clinton eating at Chipotle. She had, we were told, a chicken burrito bowl (with guacamole). If only our political system -- and media coverage -- were as satisfying.

Record of Miraculous Events... Book Review

Peter Clothier | April 18, 2015 | Books
The book is a wonderful addition to the bedside table, to be picked up from time to time to indulge in the pleasure of a couple of stories, picked at random, to be transported into a magical world far from our own, but a world that operates according to its own laws, its own social mores, its own logic.

Traditional Worship Is the Future

V.R. Marianne Zahn | April 18, 2015 | Religion
What Conservative Christians are really upset about, deep down, is not that one or a few or dozens or hundreds of their fold are being attracted by liturgical traditions and progressive theology. What they are really upset about is that their ways and their positions of privilege in the world are dying.

Ellevate | April 18, 2015 | Women
