Scandal Ends Crazy, Troubled Year With Fresh Hope for Next Season

Scandal is a roller-coaster ride of a show, constantly pushing the envelope and shocking fans with its twisty turns.

From Relationship Roadkill to Recommitment

From Relationship Roadkill to Recommitment

As a woman for whom the relationship “r-word” had been “roadkill” more often than “recommitment,” it is surprising that I leapt to the assumption that “May is National Recommitment Month” was for lovers. A Google search, however, led in a different direction: Apparently Recommitment Month originated as a time to look back on New Year’s […]

Judge Ruled Pink Is Age Appropriate Music

Judge Ruled Pink Is Age Appropriate Music

Is music by Pink appropriate for preteen girls? That was the basis of a recent lawsuit in New Jersey in which a father claimed his ex-wife was a “bad parent” for taking their 11-year-old daughter to a Pink concert. The basis of the case illustrates a regular quandary for parents, dance teachers and glee clubs selecting music […]

Hope Is Not a Strategy

Many have allowed their dreams to rest on the unstable grounds of hope, but what they fail to realize is hope alone is not a strategy.  Many years ago while working in corporate America two significant things became very apparent.

I come from a third world country where the concept of being modern is to embrace Western values unconditionally. By this I mean acceptance of western trends in clothing, thinking process, morality, music, language and food. When you look at it as I have articulated there is nothing wrong. However, where it should matter most […]
