The Olympics opened my eyes

I have been without a television set for a few days, but I know that the Olympics are the thing right now. I watched the opening ceremony with my parents, and I have watched a few events make history. I am learning something from the Olympics, though. Whenever I used to think of Brazil, I thought of tanned babes with great hair in bikinis. In the past, I saw Brazil in music videos and magazines, and everybody looked happy.

Aggravation lurks in the remote…

Driven to distraction

OXFORD, Md. -- Reflexively, I type "Dru" and The Drudge Report pops up. I hate myself for going there but as a columnist ever in search of the zeitgeist's ultimate wave, I am behooved.

Hurrah for John Oliver

My boyfriend and I are moving together

I want you to re-read that sentence. I know I am in the Bible Belt, and folks probably read that as "My Boyfriend and I are Moving in Together." That is not the case. I am actually referring to the fact that my boyfriend and I are checking off our goals simultaneously. My boyfriend and I are moving at the pace we wanted.

Fox friends with benefits

Hurricane Katrina experiences a whirlwind of new changes

Ever since I was eleven, people have called me Hurricane. When Hurricane Katrina hit in August of 2005, everyone realized my name was spelled and pronounced just like the devastating hurricane. That's where my moniker Hurricane came from.

Hallmark at last

As a child, I was captivated by emotional stories and how words strung together had the power to make me feel happy, touched, sad, or inspired. The rudiments of my education came around the kitchen table or in the car as I listened to Mama's and Daddy's storytelling.

Night and day

PHILADELPHIA -- If political conventions tell us anything beyond the predictable, the one held last week in Cleveland and the other going on this week in Philadelphia pose contrasts so stark that one wonders if the two groups hail from the same country. Hint: One of them didn't present a diverse cross-section of America.
