Well, Let Me Say This About That
O’Reilly? Oh, Really!

When the host of cable’s most popular news show gets fired as a result of multiple allegations of sexual harassment coming to light, you know that times have changed. It seems obvious Fox News was at least influenced by the stampede of advertisers looking for the exit, so it would…

Flying The Friendly Skies

Despite an airstrike in Syria, investigations into the Trump campaign’s possible (?) ties to Russia, and all the palace intrigue in the White House, the most animated conversations this week have been around the removal of Dr. David Dao from that United flight out of Chicago. Even in the height…

The Glass Closet

The first time I heard that Rock Hudson was gay, I was in the Dallas condo of an interior decorator. That was back when they were decorators, not designers. Back when they knew the difference between Louis XV, Louis XVI and Louis Philippe. The walls of that condo were padded…

I Love A Mystery

The Lord works in mysterious ways, as we all must realize from time to time. It is my habit to write this column on Wednesday nights after everyone has retired, and the house is dark and quiet. Sometimes I know well in advance what I want to write about, and…

Language Arts

Words are music. At least they can be. The combination of words that produce prose and poetry on the written page can be evocative or provocative, and a really great turn of phrase can stick in the memory forever. When the verbal delivery of the words is done with skill,…

A Soupcon of Sexism

Well, the Crawford vs. Davis Feud opened last Sunday night, and my DVR and I were way past ready for it. Among other things, I was looking for the best quote of the night. Not expecting something as good as “No wire hangers!” or “Bring me the axe!”—after all, lines…

Be Careful What You Wish For

When I expressed a wish in last week’s column that someone would say something outrageous at the Oscars so that I would have something fun to write about this week, I didn’t have any idea it would come true in such a spectacular way. Gosh, if I’d known the universe…

The Inconvenient Truth

I think it all started with microwave ovens. This time-saving machine set off a national addiction to convenience. We first used it to heat mediocre prepared food (usually with uneven results). Since it was too much trouble to rotate the food every few seconds, we moved the turntable from the…

You’re The Top (Of My Feed)

I found out something this week I didn’t know, and it wasn’t something I had known but just forgotten—which happens with more frequency these days. (Please don’t show this admission to my husband—he needs to think he’s the forgetful one.) But what I hadn’t forgotten was reading a book called…
