    Goodbye, Cat

    I’m not exactly what you’d call an animal lover. At best you could classify me as an “animal tolerator.” I don’t mind them, in general, but I prefer to appreciate them at a distance: a once-in-a-blue-moon trip to a local zoo; a cute puppy on television; or even seeing one over a friend’s house. As […] More

    Why $15/Hour Will Give You Way Less to Look Forward To

    The frustration with our economy goes back about seven years now (hmmm…what else has lasted about seven years? What..else…?), and isn’t showing many real signs of substantially improving in the near future.

    "What Does That Txt Mean?" A Minute in the Mind of an Over Thinker

    Few things in this world work as hard or run as fast as the mind of an over thinker.

    The most fascinating part about Cindy Crawford’s very real photographs is how fake so many people are being about them.  The pictures, which show the iconic model – now 48 and a mom – scantily clad but completely un-photoshopped, have spread across the web as perhaps the best example yet of the dramatic difference between […] More

    It seems the voices in favor of mandatory paid maternity leave are growing louder. At least, as I scan Facebook and Twitter, then frequency with which the topic gets raised and debated is clearly on the rise.

    I know most of the world doesn’t agree with me on this, but for the few of you out there who have been personally victimized by pickles, nothing will ring more true to you that what I’m about to say: Pickles are nasty, evil, miserable items that should be completely eliminated from existence.  I say […] More

    'Girl Meets World' Review (Kinda): Girl Meets Farkle's Choice

    I’m not going to spend a lot of time on an actual review of this week’s Girl Meets World episode. It was just there – no where near the best episode of the series, but not the worst they’ve done, either. “Girl Meets Farkle’s Choice” was a relatively harmless entry, in which Farkle is up […] More

    See What Science Has to Say About Dog People

    In the world of cats and dogs, there are four people: people who love cats, people who love dogs, people who love both, and people who could live very happily without either.
