  1. I just read your Salon piece on divorce-wear and left you a comment on your other blog, then realized this one appears to be your current blog. Anyway, just wanted to say that I liked your Salon piece and I’m glad you got your garment groove back. You look pretty snazzy in your photo.

  2. Public schools should be replaced with private schools and learning centers. There’s nothing holy about government-run schools.

  3. How will poor children go to school Sharon Kass?

    Some things are public goods, best treated that way……as public functions. Public education has been our great equalizer.

  4. “Here’s another way Baby Boomers are screwing the rest of its”:
    The headline of your Post article on finances is inaccurate. The reason your peers can’t support themselves is because they majored in Social Justice and Gender Studies and voted for Obama. What you wrote is not journalism; its propaganda.

    • Hi. I did not write the headline and agree it is extreme. Unfortunately, some papers feel they need to do this to attract readers, due to so much competition. The print version of the story has a different headline. The article itself cites 18 named sources, most of which provide specific data from surveys and/or years of research/study/experience. I stand by the content of the piece. Most other articles on the subject are not as exhaustive. Thanks for reading.
