No, I didn’t see the movie Bridesmaids and something tells me I didn’t have to see it in order to know what it was about: Women behaving badly … or as badly as their male counterparts in so many movies, […]

I can admit when I am wrong about something, and it’s possible I was over the matter of New Jersey flying its flags at half staff following the death of Whitney Houston. As so many people pointed out, the honor […]
