Is Harvard Law Using Ted Cruz to Pander to Conspiracy Theorists?

Wednesday, January 15th, 2014 - by Paula Bolyard

In case you missed the official announcement: From now on conspiracy theorists will no longer be receiving their memorandums, instructions, and dispatches (including “red meat” and “dog whistles”) via listservs, talk radio, blogs, or newsletters. Neither will rumors or conspiracy theories be whispered to them at the secret cabal meetings, effective immediately. All members of […]

The Unproductive Obsession with Hipster Anne Frank

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

I first came to the attention of Hipster Anne Frank thanks to the Forward. I don’t Tweet much and when I do, I’m not exactly looking to hook up with faux profiles. Like most pre-tech dinosaurs (currently known as “the work force”), I can barely keep up with the real friends I have through the […]

Making Lemonade From Divorce Lemons

Wednesday, July 18th, 2012 - by Andrew Klavan

The lovely Chris Niles is a long-time and very dear friend of mine — and an extremely talented colleague as well. Recently, after 21 years of wedded something-or-other, Chris’s husband walked out on her.

3 Rules for Handling the Online Trolls, Bullies, and Crackpots

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012 - by Kathy Shaidle

“Someone must have been telling lies about Joseph K., for without having done anything wrong he was arrested one fine morning.” It’s arguably the most famous opening line in 20th century fiction. The predicament in which Franz Kafka’s “Joseph K.” finds himself is even more chillingly relevant today than it was in 1920. Not only […]

When Business Gets Personal: Is Blogging Any Job For a Woman?

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012 - by Kathy Shaidle

At Forbes, Larissa Faw takes a frank look at the business side of the female blogosphere.

The ‘Cult’ of Attachment Parenting?

Friday, April 27th, 2012 - by Rhonda Robinson

From the discussion on Elisabeth Badinter’s controversial new book The Conflict at Slate: Badinter places the guilt over breast-feeding into a larger cultural and historical context. Modern women have given themselves over to the cult of what she calls “ecological parenting.” It’s not just breast-feeding on demand, but the fad for doulas and natural childbirth […]
