My abuser, and 2 of the 3 pastors who knew about my abuse yet failed to report it to law enforcement, have resigned. Yet of is still in the pulpit and refuses to take responsibility for not reporting my assault, which is a crime. How is this ok?

I am not that easily insulted. Help is usually needed at a conference, a strange place. It’s being ignored as a colleague that’s hurtful.

Windy's first trip to the vet since came home. Healthy. Annual physical. Very healthy. 1.5 pounds weight gain since she's still a growing girl. They adored her--of course. She was an angel.

Attending ? Please don't touch, talk to, make eye-contact with my Seeing Eye Dog. She loves people and I need her to remain focused at her first conference. But you can talk to the human attached to the guide.

This may make me unpopular, and all these tweets about writing or book promos are boring in my twitter feed. Some is good; an un-ending diet of it is like more cheese than wine at the party.

What's the best way to get to O'Hare airport from Evanston? I mean taxi, Lyft, Uber, some kind of shuttle? Haven't flown from O'Hare in years. Prefer Midway, but it'skinda far now.

And we may as well have a funeral for 'whom'. Whom comes after a preposition, but then, people can't get those right either. Why don't we just abandon English?

Has the word 'who' as a pronoun left the English language? Example: "They were the people that protested." No!!! No!!! No!!! People are whos, not that's. They were the people WHO protested."

You can see why I tend to gush over her. She got an A+ in adorableness.

She is just short of 2 1/2. So, yes, she’s a bit of a baby still.
