    Hope Is a Choice

    Posted on by Lauren Bloom

    Tomorrow marks the beginning of a new era in America, as we say goodbye to one President and hello to another. It’s been a tough transition, with lots of anger and accusations from both sides. Sadly, I don’t think that … Continue reading

    The Shameful Business of Body Shaming

    Posted on by Lauren Bloom

    Recently, I had the opportunity to see Embrace, a stunning documentary by Australian filmmaker Taryn Brumfitt. After the births of her three children, Ms. Brumfitt posted a “before and after” shot of herself as she transitioned from a bikini-clad body … Continue reading

    What Do Looks Have to Do with It?

    Posted on by Lauren Bloom

    Donald Trump has taken (in my opinion) some well-deserved heat for saying that his opponent, Hillary Clinton, doesn’t have the “look” to be President. No surprise, I suppose. The Donald is legendary for his observations about women’s appearance. The Clinton … Continue reading

    Why’ve we got to be so crude?

    Torture Is Beneath Us

    Posted on by smartauthorsites

    The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence’s report on the CIA’s alleged use of torture is, in a word, appalling.  I’ve tried to read it, but some of the interrogation practices it describes are more than I can handle.  Consequently, this … Continue reading
