Here's a flash from the past, no? I'm enjoying the parade of young women colleagues coming into my office to express their outrage about the sexism around the Palin nomination. This is probably the first time they've ever really seen what we elders have seen all along. They are upset--and . . .

And who votes in a screwy state responsi ble for . . .
I LOVE my Monday night class. I gave them an in-class free-writing exercise and I was BLOWN AWAY by the creativity. What are these kids doing in a functional writing class like PR? They all should be Creative Writing majors. Oh, I'll have my work cut out for me, beating the creativity out . . .
