Obama campaigned as Pro-Choice, a fact which, upon his inauguration, prompted a sigh of relief from all those who wanted abortion restrictions abolished. But when the time came to step up with all his boastings of “change,” President Obama just couldn’t commit. Instead, he appealed to the majority, gaining support from anti-abortion Democrats who were needed to pass the health care reform.
In the modern day mating dance, a lot of things can permanently put the brakes on a burgeoning relationship. Still, everything your mom and the nuns at Catholic school taught you about sex and dating is not true. Barfing in a front of a dude on a first date isn't necessarily a relationship death sentence. Hooking up with a guy on the first night doesn't automatically make you a slut.
Despite her tiny stature, bubbly personality and unabashed kindness, Debbie Gardner could kill a dude. Not the average mother, Gardner believes telling her kid “Call me when you get there” is a set-up for failure. She doesn’t consider walking alone at night an abomination. And if she had the power, McGruff the Crime Dog would be hauled off to the SPCA.

It’s clear that onstage is where Jessica Dimon feels most comfortable. On a recent Friday night, she struts through Northside’s Club Nonta, lip-synching to a Ke$ha/P!nk/ Katy Perry mix, pausing to snatch dollars from admirers lining the periphery of her performance area. She rocks a tight, black bedazzled jumpsuit that skims one shoulder, and big blonde and caramel-colored barrel curls spill out of the top of her head.

As the snow melts away and the first signs of spring begin to erupt from the cold earth, it's time to start thinking about long walks with your four-legged best friend. Dogs are an irrepressible source of joy and companionship, but if you live in an urban environment there are a few issues you should consider.
Despite logging record cold and snowfall this winter, many of us might still be yearning for the comfort of a crackling fire and hot cup of cocoa. Sorry to say, making cocoa is fairly simple; providing a warm crackling fire, especially in a prohibitive home, apartment or condo, well, that's a bit more challenging.
Previously I only felt bombarded by car commercials. Now I feel inundated by real estate newspaper ads, billboards and even bus stop waiting benches telling me I have to sign up for the home buying tax credit before it's too late.

Ugh! Dating. Am I right?! It’s like sometimes you meet people and you think they’re really hot or funny and then you go out on a date (outside of the bar or Internet) and all of a sudden they’re really boring gropers who love to talk about how fast they could run in high school.

Enjoy.
