    I saw “The Silver Linings Playbook” on Friday. It’s not the most progressive movie ever, but I thought it did a great job of presenting people with mental illness without either demonizing or fetishizing them. (Spoilers, TW: mental illness) I really appreciated the portrayal in the film of the different kinds of mental illness and [...]

    Not to shamelessly self-promote, but I also did a write-up of Ms. Baldwin on my tumblr My Shero.

    Thumbnail A SYTYCB entry This week, the world lost one of its great funny women— nay, funny  people— Phyllis Diller. Ms. Diller had been a showbusiness staple from the early 1950’s onwards, and is credited as the woman who broke through the comedy glass ceiling.  Onstage, she portrayed an eccentric housewife, and was known for her self-deprecating humor and outlandish [...]

    I disagree with the notion that a lack of education is what is the source of the nutritional deficits of poor families.
