Don’t Insult Me

Around three weeks from now, I will observe my mother’s 23rd yahrzeit, the annual acknowledgment of the (Hebrew) date of her death. It is, of course, impossible to know for sure how my mother would relate to today’s events, but I think that I have a pretty good idea. My mother had a sunny disposition....

Well-intentioned and Wrong

Did you carry an egg around in junior high? The late 1980s saw schools providing ‘egg babies’ to their students in an attempt to expose them to the work involved in caring for a baby. You were meant to provide a place for the egg to rest and keep it with you at all times....

Don’t Be Shocked
