What Women Should No Longer Wear After Age 50

Andrea Pflaumer | August 27, 2016 | Fifty
There's a lot of ink these days in the blogosphere about how older women should be able to 'wear whatever the f--- they want.' Well, of course, I applaud the sentiment and the theory. But in practice, for me at least, there are some things in my closet that have outlived their usefulness.

My Mother's Dog Speaks The Truth

Janie Emaus | August 27, 2016 | Fifty
I don't speak Canine. But apparently my 91-year-old mother does. She is closer to her yapping beagle, Chipper, than anyone in the world. She walks him twice a day, cuddles with him on her couch, feeds him from the dinner table and worries about him constantly.

Donald Trump's Black Voter Delusion

Michael Fauntroy | August 27, 2016 | Politics
Donald Trump won the Republican nomination by swimming in the rotten river of racial stereotypes and invective. And Black people know him well enough that a few speeches here and there won't change anyone's mind.

Chris Weigant | August 26, 2016 | Politics
It's still only August, but already the predictions that this would be an exceedingly banal presidential election campaign look like they've already come true.

The word 'cult' is never benign in religious terminology as it is in the world of art, where Johnny Stonenoggin filmster extraordinaire may cult-ivate a cult following for his eccentricity in artistry.

Weekend Roundup: Anti-Global Backlash Is Realigning Politics Across the West

Nathan Gardels | August 26, 2016 | World
The great sociologist Max Weber postulated that the birth act of modern capitalism was the secession of business from the household and thus the web of moral and ethical obligations that intimate form of human organization entailed. Zygmunt Bauman has called globalization the "'second secession'" in which unleashed capitalism has "'flown away'" from the constraints of the nation-state, in effect the larger household. Now, national households are clawing back their claims, reasserting sovereignty in an anti-globalization backlash that is profoundly realigning politics.(continued)
