Mommy explains her plastic surgery
In Dallas (naturally), a parenting magazine discusses how easy it is for mommies who don’t like their post-child bodies to get surgery — and to have it financed! — to reverse the effects of time and childbirth. Don’t like what nursing has done to your na-nas? Doc has just the solution: Doctors say some women,…
Why I became Orthodox
Wrapping up my four Beliefnet years, I was thinking about the posts that attracted the most attention and comment in that time.

Thirty years ago, would anyone have foreseen China as prosperous as it is today? And would anyone have predicted that so many…
Here’s your chance to say goodbye
By week’s end at the most, I’ll be saying goodbye to Beliefnet and moving this blog over to Big Questions Online. When I make the announcement, I’ll close all comments threads, because I won’t be able to monitor them anymore. I’ll be giving coordinates for the new blog and all that, but because when I…
