    I'm a recovering news junkie (Hi, Jane!)--the Trump era cured me overnight, along with my local station having been bought by Sinclair--a virulent Foxesque outlet. I get more than enough news in my...

    I couldn't be much more self-contained, but I've never had a conversation about "boundaries" or "being open" with anyone, let alone in a work situation. Has the workplace changed so much?

    Not really. I regret a couple of consensual encounters you might call "pity sex," but I see all the crude passes, etc. in the same light I would see any rude behavior. I respond to the situation and...

    And George HW Bush, oh the horrors. If you can't fend off a 90-year-old wheelchair-bound bloke with palsy, there's no hope for you.

    I do hope this hysteria blows over soon. Sort the wheat from...

    I've been kissed by people whose performances were at best inept, and at worst gagworthy. (And I don't remember any of them announcing their intentions...) How remiss of me not to report them to the...

    The picture, while unforgivably juvenile, was posed, with no touching of a woman who was apparently wearing a flack jacket. With several people in the room. When a co-worker grabbed my ass, I chased...

    Masochist that I am, I'm listening to the audible download of Insane Clown President, by Matt Taibbi. It's a collection of his dispatches from the election trenches. It's well written, well narrated,...

    I'm in agreement with you about marriage vows. I've known several people who could have taken off when the going got rough, but the fact that they didn't showed admirable strength of character. From...

    Indeed. We shouldn't let the usual barrage of conservative insults prevent us from trying to right social wrongs. Besides, if you've got virtue--or a bit of human decency (so rare these days), You...

    Depression can be paralyzing; then problems pile up; then you get more depressed and more paralyzed--and the cycle continues. Soon even the tiniest move seems insurmountable. You need more practical...

    Yes--and the worst of it was that they didn't have enough work history to get more than one year's back payments. But at least they got it. They had phone-book sized files full of records of doctor's...
