  • A super sibling rivalry

    Everyone I know is busy preparing for the annual Super Bowl blowout, stocking up on beer and browsing through chili recipes. Me, I'm wondering where the elder Harbaughs will sit to watch their sons coach against each other. If you're a parent with more...
  • Thursday Morning Reads: Foreclosures, rabid cats and a sewer project

    TALLAHASSEE -- Good morning and happy Thursday. Here's what we're reading this morning.   * The Sentinel looks at the drop in foreclosures and whether or not it's the result of the new law.   * Palm Beach County is hunting for rabid cats, the...
  • When worried about hackers, cash is king

    Back in the day, a hack was not an act but a person -- a writer who elevated the use of cliches to an art form or an artist too lazy to stray from a tried-and-true formula. Hack now means something altogether different. The mere mention of the word spurs...
  • Swimsuit shopping is depressing, humiliating, humbling

    Though the weather is stuck on scorch, end-of-summer sales are already sprouting in earnest. In search of a bathing suit, I'm game. When you live in Miami and spend time in chlorine-saturated pools, you're always looking for a suit to replace your faded,...
  • A callous app from NRA

    The callousness, the sheer idiocy, of some organizations never ceases to amaze me. A month after the slaughter of 20 children and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, the National Rifle Association has released a new game that...
  • Thanksgiving is for family and friends, not shopping

    I won't. Never will, either, and you have my word printed here in black and white. I don't care how enticing a discount, how wonderful the product. I will not shop on Thanksgiving. Ever. Enough is enough. Leave Turkey Day alone. Keep it free of the...
  • Grandmother to girls: glittery shoes, hair ribbons and hard questions

    And she makes five. When Claire Renee, all wrinkled skin and wispy black hair, arrived on Election Day, the first child of my middle son, this precious (and, of course, precocious) addition confirmed a trend. Mine is now a family of granddaughters, a new...
  • In Florida cyberbully case, where were the parents, teachers, friends?

    There is perhaps no more heartbreaking story in the news these days than the suicide of a bullied 12-year-old Florida girl, a death all the more distressing because it was a preventable loss of young life. The sadness extends beyond the obvious. Two...
  • Texas teen's 'affluenza" defense is absure

    It's so difficult to avoid absurdity these days, and more difficult yet to witness how outlandish defenses, ridiculous justifications and bizarre explanations work in favor of those who need the book thrown at them. Those who, if our justice system weren'...
  • Best Christmas toys use a child's imagination, not their thumbs

    I felt like a little girl all over again, pig-tailed and knock-kneed, eager to be left alone to play. One bin brimmed with sealed packages of shiny new jacks and little pink balls, another with a collection of Pickup Sticks. In this cramped back room of a...
  • Boomers, it's time to reassess our legacy

    The new year is but a few days old, and already, before it has had time to grow whiskers and wrinkles, 2014 can claim its very own historic milestone: The youngest baby boomers have begun turning 50. Along with that big five-oh, come discounts -- yay! --...
  • Resolved to get out of my rut in 2013

    "Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore." -- Andre Gide, Nobel Prize-winning author It may be a sign of maturity -- or more likely a symptom of sheer exhaustion -- that I've limited myself to one New Year's...
