I'm black, and Jewish--the Pope was a champion for both groups. Sure, he didn't hold all of my views, but the point is that he dedicated his life to helping others. Anyone who does this--from a plain old person right on up to the Pope--deserves to have his or her life celebrated. I can understand th...

Everyone is sick lately! I have bronchitis (again--and I know smoking doesn't help); two of my friends here in town have sore throats, and a best friend in Des Moines sounds like he's been gargling with gravel. I think it's a conspiracy...

Welcome back, Spookys! My nephew went through the same thing recently--he kept passing out, and my sister's GP couldn't figure out why. Turns out the poor kid has allergies and asthma, but they've now got it under control and he's back to being a rowdy 9 year old. I'm rooting for you and Jordan.

I am SO late to this discussion--His Dark Materials is one of the best trilogies ever written to expose the hypocracy of Christianity. I sent the series to my best friend, and while it took her a while to pick it up, she's now hooked. And they're planning on making a movie! I can't wait...

I have my first academic presentation next month! I'm presenting a paper on sexuality and race in the works of James Baldwin and Samuel Delany. This will be my first symposium! I ROCK! (To academic nerds, this will make sense. The rest of you can just nod and smile and pretend to care. :oops: )

My little sister turned 14 last month. She's tall, willowy and gorgeous. I went home for her birthday party, and she said, "Sharmin, do you think I'll be as pretty as you are when I'm your age?"

Compliment? Sure. But it reminded me that I'm almost twice her age. I'm 26, and I feel OLD...

Last time two African Americans won Oscars it was headline news. Now, it barely carried a mention. All good. I noticed that, too, and I think it's a big step in the right direction. This year, there wasn't the controversy that there was about two of "us" winning, no chatter about whether they reall...

Scielle--I, too, was baffled by why they chose Beyonce to sing in French. And two other times. Good Lord, but she annoys the stank out of me. There are very (very!) few times that I've wanted to see Celine Dion, but that was one of them. Is it me, or is Clint Eastwood one sexy septuagenarian? That m...

It was a hell of an improvement over last year's droopy-titty-goth getup. THAT was some mess. Everyone was dressed quite conservatively last night, which was a bit of a relief. I was offended, however, by Salma Hayek's perfect and aggressive bosom... And I don't think Jamie Foxx will change--at leas...

Agreed--Chris Rock started off angry, then settled into polite host mode. Still, his skit at Magic Theatres cracked me up--it's probably the only time that many black people will be seen on an Oscars broadcast. I whooped and applauded loudly when Jamie Foxx won--it was no surprise to anyone, but it ...
