  • The Ugly Meter: A sign of our times

    Turn on that bathroom light and take a good look in the mirror. Examine the crow's feet, the receding hairline, the bump on your nose, the sagging curve of your cheeks, the lopsided smile. Like what you see? I sure hope so. If beauty is in the eye of the...
  • In my opinion: Queen Elizabeth's jubilee offers lesson for our times

    Imagine devoting six decades to something. Anything. In a world where speed rules, where job-hopping has become a necessity, where marriages are short-lived and our collective attention spans the breadth of a gnat's wings, sticking with something for...
  • The handoff: Caring for aging parents instead of growing kids

    For years, we spoke endlessly about our children. In phone calls, over coffee, during a weekend breakfast or quick business lunch, the women I call friends shared the details of raising children, the difficulties and joys and, mostly, the relentless...
  • NBC hires Chelsea Clinton for her name, not experience

    Ask me to name a journalist I admire and I won't pause to answer: Ann Curry. I watch her most every morning as a co-anchor on NBC's "Today." She inspires trust, an essential ingredient in the news biz. She knows what she's doing, and she's worked her...
  • End of the world? Mayan doomsday the latest hoax

    So here we are in 2012, a new year full of hope and promise. My heart sings with possibilities. But somewhere, someone is already predicting the end of the world. Bummer. If this prediction sounds vaguely familiar, you're right. We've heard it before,...
  • What I learned from my grandchildren

    I'm one of those lucky women who, by the grace of God or economics, lives 10 minutes from her grandchildren. Unlike friends who must board a plane or drive across state to play matriarch, I simply navigate past seven traffic lights to dispense hugs and...
  • Finding structure, comfort in routine

    This week, hungering for normalcy, I've returned to my customary schedule. Sort of. Up at 5 a.m., I walk the dog, feed the cat and off to the gym I go. Upon my return home, I do what I always do in the fashion I've grown accustomed to. This makes me feel...
  • For new grads, it's all about jobs

    Another college graduation season has eased to its celebratory end, and parents who have finally paid the last of the tuition bills are talking less about majors and GPAs and plenty about jobs. Jobs, jobs, jobs, as mantra and buzz word. If my friends...
  • Truth is the victim in presidential campaign

    Summer has slipped into memory, school buses are rolling down our streets, and the presidential campaign is in full swing. Time for someone to save us from the god-awful mudslinging. I can't remember political ads ever being so negative or deceptive....
  • Student loans divide the have from the have-nots

    Here's a trick question: What do we owe more money on -- credit cards, auto loans or student debt? Ping! Time's up. If you answered student debt, congratulations. You're up to date on what some economists are calling the next big financial crisis. Or...
  • Cain Scandal: An Example of Too Much Sex in Politics

    Can you imagine JFK running for president in today's media-saturated world, with CNN, Politico and the Twitter-verse poking into his extramarital trysts? So much for Camelot. I thought of those halcyon days -- which, by the way, I'm too young to...
  • A move, not kids, tests a marriage

    At one time or another, my friends, mothers all, have insisted that marriages without children are healthier and happier than those with. Something to do with sleepless nights, relentless (and not always shared) responsibilities and squabbles over...
