Nearly half the American population does not support gay marriage, but many are getting there. The president appears to be one of them, but he won't get there through political bullying. But since he is a well-known believer in Dr. King's dream, I am pretty sure his evolution will continue.
Don't get too comfortable. The most frightening moment is upon us, I fear: Julie's departure. B doesn't delve into when and where this is happening, but she does hint at it enough to keep me trembling at the inevitable breakdown that will no doubt occur.

Last night's episode built on a theme that came up last week: When do you decide to pursue a dream? And how long do you keep that dream to yourself? Because if there's anything that "Mad Men" likes, it's a secret. And what do you wear when you have a...

It goes without saying that this was one of the most awkward experiences in my already-pretty-awkward life, but I knew right away that I was happy I did it. Mainly, I had achieved one of my main goals with the experience, which was to get a sense of my own sexual boundaries.
The Autumn Defense, fronted by John Stirratt and Pat Sansone, is on tour with Nick Lowe, and I had the chance to catch up with both at their New Orleans gig last weekend. This is a brief interview with John.

No one's health is improved by swapping out natural saturated or monounsaturated fats for skim milk, sugars or processed grains. So if you encounter misbegotten products such as fat-free half-and-half, do what I do -- leave them on the shelf.
Approximately one out of every eight children in sub-Saharan Africa dies before his or her fifth birthday from preventable and treatable causes. These deaths are preventable through the deployment of health systems of the kind being pioneered in the Millennium Villages.
Very few people laugh out loud, especially at Facebook entries, most of which are insufferably mundane and usually not even remotely humorous. One has to wonder why people feel compelled to inform their friends that "I put my shirt on backwards this morning! LOL."
Once you enter the divorce process, the relationship between the couple changes immediately.
The multi-billionaire Warren Buffett recently pointed out that he's avoided tax for decades. Meanwhile he's accumulated massive wealth that he kept out of reach of the IRS. He insists that as a matter of fairness he should be made to pay more taxes too.
