    I suspect that your mother might want to be more involved than you think, but is taking the "I don't want to interfere" approach to extremes. My mom (who lives far away, but I digress) was a little ha more »

    We went hyphenated for our son. Even though my last name is a little bulky, it's cool. More importantly, it's *ME*. Also, my husband's last name is "fake" (selected from the phone book by a not-very-c more »

    Oh honey, I feel your pain. I really do. I have a 5 month old and I work full time, and often feel physically hungry for my baby by the end of the day. He's in a small home-based day care rather than more »

    Too bad so many have fallen for the conservative lies and greed, and transparent scare tactics. Also too bad so many have forgotten the very recent past - remember what else was "unpopular" that was " more »

    Agreed - all of you who are getting so pissy about it are probably upset you aren't involved, and with that kind of attitude, never will be. What a creative and wonderful way for up and coming chefs a more »

    I never considered changing my name when I married. It was not a feminist decision (though I most certainly am one!), it was an issue of not wanting to symbolically scrape clean 30+ years of accomplis more »

    While I am 100% in favor of a complete and total repeal of DADT, how about at the same time the military tries enforcing the ban on the regular, brutal (and then covered up and denied) on hetero soldi more »

    This non-Cambridge, non-Boston, non-Amherst resident is still proudly liberal and still voting, but just hoping for a better candidate next time. more »

    Whew, you (I can only presume) perfect and thin people sure are angry! Go have a cheeseburger, it'll improve your mood. It all makes me wonder if maybe I should gain a few pounds - Lesley seems happie more »

    Hey G.W., I respectfully but vehemently disagree. Read Sapphira's final paragraph, then make sure you do just that. Also, stop trying to foist your beliefs on those of us that care to better the world more »

    Hooray for WJLA! It sickens me that this ridiculous obsession with the bare human body could even play into a PSA that might, oh, I don't know, SAVE LIVES! What is this "watchdog" group so afraid of a more »

    I'm sorry for those rare cases who truly suffer, and I'm probably going to get blasted for this but I'm sick and tired of all the "allergies". Take your kids outside to play in the dirt, drop the pure more »

    The smell of witch hazel reminds me of my beloved late grandmother. She used it every night before bed, so I did too thinking I was so grown up. I may have to pick some up, for the walk down memory la more »

    Hooray, Senate! Let's hope the House keeps up the good work. Abortion IS health care. and this bill is about access. No access = no choice. No choice = unacceptable. more »

    Curiosity got the best of me, so I googled Lizzie Miller. Holy cow is she gorgeous! I agree with nesportsfan that she looks more like a 10, but regardless of her "number" she is so much more lovely th more »

    This will take the warmth and humanity out of one of the most fundamental aspects of a healthy society - literacy. Sure, you can read on a screen, but you can also get all of your nutrients through a more »

    Apologies to all of you who are making valid arguments (both of you), as the mother of a 3 and 6 year old, I can't imagine life without PBS and WGBH. My children get 30 minutes of TV a day, and given more »

    Yikes! Rightwingtruths (ahem), aka Mr "I love quotes and-random hyphens", or maybe it's Ms "inaPpropriate Capitalization", has seriously fallen off the rails. Can we take away your right to vote while more »
