I was going to include this in my weekly breakdown post, but realized it was going to be longer than a few sentences. I’ve bumped it up to post level.
I tried to stifle a groan and move on, but there’s been a dozen articles in response to some [...]
I just want to piggyback off a recent post by Khadija over at Muslim Bushido, African-American Slave Consumers’ Addiction to “Business As Usual” Vs. Escape Velocity.
Speaking only for myself, I make very conscious choices for what I media I consume and whom I give support to. I’ve put my neck [...]
That’s rowing jargon. Instead of using a simulated exercise gizmo, do the real thing. On the water. In a boat. Check out your local rowing club and join a class for beginner lessons. Of course you might want to have some minimal swimming skills just in case. And you will socialize and mingle with the yacht [...]

Not even the never-ending battles for control of oil, precious metals and human cargo is new news. 1984-style monitoring was a) already predicted b) ongoing across several previous administrations (it’s a major plot point on The Americans and their timeline is the 1980′s). When we discussed the perils of making a martyr out [...]
There’s a Twitter account named White Feminist that uses satire to expose racism according to the Editorial staff. I heard about it because Cosmopolitan magazine wrote a positive review about it (humph) and it showed up on the blog’s Twitter feed last week.
Here’s a gem of a sample of what awaits you:
Thank you to the awesome women who’ve connected via social media. So many reached out to offer kind words, encouragement and practical solutions when I wrote about an issue I’m trying to resolve.
On a separate (but cohesive) note, I’ve been exploring the connection between Mind/Body/Spirit but haven’t quite come to [...]
