Better Together

As you may or may not know, “Game of Thrones” is in the middle of its seventh season of shocking, amazing, and completely destroying the hearts and minds of the world. If you’re behind or not much of a fan, don’t worry – there won’t be any spoilers and I’m not going to try to convert you. That said, there are a few “GoT”-related things we need to discuss.

The Wedge Issue

I’m sure you’ve all heard that Trump wants to ban transgender persons from military service. I would go into greater detail, but at the rate the story and its response have been changing I risk being out of touch by the time this edition goes to press. Instead, let’s break down what it means for us.

The Big Move

This week I’m writing to you from the edge of sanity and reason. You see, I’m moving and now understand that moving is one of the most stressful life events that a person can face. Everything about moving is stressful – finding the appropriate number of boxes, figuring out what will go into said boxes, and then actually moving those boxes from your old life to your new life. The things that don’t make the cut, the stuff that won’t be joining you in your new life, still need to be moved and dealt with. Factor in the July heat and humidity and you have a recipe for an experience that will make you hate everything.

Dear Kathy Griffin

Dear Kathy Griffin,

You said you wanted to give us something to talk about, and, as usual, you delivered. Yes, I’m talking about the photo. It was controversial, provocative, and visceral – all the things that make art art. And I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it because the photo and our response to it (and you) has given me quite a bit to talk about.

The Sequined Letter

Recently our little valley made international news. I know this because the story was emailed to me by a friend who recently relocated to New Zealand, a friend who was concerned about what this says about the place I call home. A local girl was not allowed to participate in her high school graduation ceremony because the administration had deemed her “immoral.” She had gotten pregnant out of wedlock, something expressly forbidden by the private Christian school’s code of conduct, and as punishment would not be allowed to participate in her graduation, despite being a good student and president of the student council.
