Well, Let Me Say This About That
Shocked, Shocked

Inserting movie lines into regular conversation, particularly with my husband, is one of my guilty pleasures. Why come up with a good line of your own when the best of Hollywood screenwriting is there for you to plagiarize? Karl knows by now that any attempt he makes to call me…

Less Politics, More Beefcake

Well, it finally happened. I hit the wall. For almost 30 years, I have gotten dressed while listening to the news. But not this week. When I was in college, I would play records while doing the hair and the maquillage. Maybe a little Billy Joel or Phoebe Snow, maybe…

On A Serious Note

Robert E. Lee High School in Tyler, Texas, opened in 1958, and my older sister was in its graduating class of 1961—the first class that had spent all three years of high school as the Lee Rebels, with Dixie as the fight song, and the second largest Confederate flag in…

Words & Music

If memory serves me, I started reading The Carpetbaggers when I was in the sixth grade. It was not the kind of the book that nice little boys—regardless of how precociously gay they may have been—should have been reading at that age. In fact, the review of the book in…
