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.

Online Reputation Management, CEOs and the Age of Gender Discrimination Litigation

Ellevate | April 18, 2015 | Women
Ellen Pao's lawsuit against venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins vividly illustrates how CEOs and business leaders are scrutinized online in a way most of us will never be. Every day, the players in this case are the subject of articles, commentary and speculation.

Podcast Review: To The Manor Borne By Robots

Marc Hershon | April 18, 2015 | Entertainment
It's great discovering new entries to Podcastland, particularly those that push the boundaries of what we get to hear. While To The Manor Borne By Robots is largely comedy-flavored, it is also by turns social commentary, science fiction, mystery, intrigue, with a helping of noir narrative ladled over the top.

Why I'm Unsubscribing From Ageism in the Gay Community

David Vaughn | April 18, 2015 | Gay Voices
Almost every time I go out in the gayborhood, I experience some form of ageism. Age shouldn't matter -- because it doesn't. It's the 21st century, and the only things truly dated about us are our idealisms.

Why I am Green (And the Republican Candidates Make Me See Red)

Kara Post-Kennedy | April 18, 2015 | Politics
We humans have a hilarious abundance of phrases that mean the same thing -- when in doubt, we should err on the side of caution. See, there's another one! The point being, one thing anyone who can read or hear and/or has been living on this planet should not be in doubt about is global climate change.

Who Comes First? (Not That Way)

Lisa Grunwald | April 18, 2015 | Weddings
Life in a family is constant triage; need always dictates priority. Children and their things and their needs osmose around the corners. Sounds come through: a burst of laughter, a slammed door, maybe a faucet left on. You shouldn't have to choose where your heart goes. You don't have to choose.

Am I Ready for Hillary?

Peter Greene | April 18, 2015 | Education
Hillary Rodham Clinton is running for President. Let the questions begin. My question is, will she be good for public education? Clinton's track record hasn't brought her into education issues very often. But there is one huge honking squealing flashing siren wrapped in a fluorescent red flag atop a high-powered blinking crimson light.

Movie Review: Child 44 -- Leave This One Behind

Marshall Fine | April 18, 2015 | Entertainment
Certainly the pedigree of Child 44 makes it seem promising. But the timing of the release -- April, a pre-summer graveyard -- and the fact that it wasn't screened for critics until shortly before opening both mitigate against it.

Movie Review: Alex of Venice -- Mopey

Marshall Fine | April 18, 2015 | Entertainment
The directing debut of actor Chris Messina, Alex of Venice is as notable for what it doesn't do as for what it does. This is the story of a married parent suddenly forced to realign priorities when their spouse walks out. Think Kramer vs. Kramer - and then make the central character a woman instead of a man.

'An American in Paris': Who Got 'Rhythm'?

Barry Singer | April 18, 2015 | Arts
These wildly over-existential ponderings were triggered by, of all things, the recently opened, widely celebrated, extravagantly beautiful, production of An American in Paris, which, as so many have been saying, really is great to look at.

Mad Men Season 7: Don's Long Goodbye

James Marshall Crotty | April 18, 2015 | Entertainment
The tragedy of King Draper is that now that he is "ready" (as he tells "Di"), the tough new girl in his life reveals that she is not. She needs to suffer a bit more for her past misdeeds. And so it goes. The heaping mess of karma, born long before Dick Whitman even entered this world, is still inflicting its vengeance on our late-blooming ad man.
