Malala Yousafzai

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more striking example of Intelligence vs. Ignorance and Enlightenment vs. Dogma.   I wish I believed in hell so I could be certain the idiot Talibs were destined for it. Ehsanullah Ehsan, chief spokesman for the Pakistani Taliban, claimed responsibility for the attack, saying that Yousafzai “is the […]

Feminism

  My generation, spoiled by the advances of those who went before us, lost our grip on feminism’s banner. I’m grateful to this site for making it evident that the struggle is still going on, the activism is still needed, and that it can be done with a sense of humour that the stereotypical “angry […]

Becoming Marilyn

The name was a façade, and it seems the façade was a façade, too. Poor girl. It took a lot of work to “be” Marilyn Monroe. The starlet slathered on layers of Vaseline, hormone cream, Erno Laszlo Active pHelityl Cream, or Nivea (meaning “snow white”) to give a glow under studio lights, followed by a […]

Video: She who laughs last – songstress Susan Boyle – Times Online

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/scotland/article6121279.ece Most of the recent press about Susan Boyle has been commentary about her performance, or the YouTube sensation it created. Her TV interviews thus far have given the impression of someone quite shy and quiet when she isn’t performing. So it’s nice to see this Times article that proves there is a gritty, personable […]

Running Cause I Cant Fly: The Story of Susan Boyle

http://coyoteprime-runningcauseicantfly.blogspot.com/2009/04/story-of-susan-boyle.html More Susan Boyle stuff. She’s flooding the Internet (and, because of this, the traditional media too) but as far as I’m concerned, it’s 47 years of accumulated, overdue attention, plus late fees and interest. The majority of the press is focused on her looks, which grows tiresome. What I found more shocking was the […]

(Untitled)

http://www.cbc.ca/sunday/2008/10/101908_1.html Rather than spending her post-political life settling down to the dinner circuit, ex-Minister of External Affairs Flora McDonald has taken to the remote areas of Afghanistan with her humanitarian NGO. She’s preaching the benefits of schools and health care (including birth control) in a country where international focus has mainly been on military action. […]
