    Potluck at the Hospital

    Potluck at the Hospital
    I don’t mean to be a Turkey Scrooge but I absolutely hate working on the holidays. Every year. And every year that I hate it I wonder why I continue to be surprised by it.

    10 Ways to Control Your Fiery Temper

    10 Ways to Control Your Fiery Temper
    I’ll be the first to admit that when I’m behind the wheel of my car, I become a terrible person—a cursing, mad-dogging, dangerous-driving version of myself. The same is true of my public-transportation persona—my evil twin (or, alternately, my inner crybaby) always rears her ugly head when she’s forced to endure train delays or body-to-body buses, and then she spends the ...

    Power Struggle: Why Women Compete

    Power Struggle: Why Women Compete
    Recently, columnist Meghan McCain wrote an essay on how the Republican Party was failing to attract young people. How did conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham respond?

    6 Ways We Waste Hours of Our Lives

    6 Ways We Waste Hours of Our Lives
    The first of my many, many time-wasting activities takes place each morning with repeated manipulations of the snooze button on my alarm clock, followed by a dilly-dallying shower and an untoward amount of time spent perusing the offerings of my closet.

    We’re faced with more tricky etiquette situations from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Eve than in the previous eleven months combined.
