We are very good about passing along information that inflames our passions of outrage. Can we be as good about passing along an invitation to share A Moment of Peace?
We have to call bullshit on those who think something like talking about masturbation or being in a sexy photo is shameful or even relevant to holding the vast majority of public offices.
I'm not a politician but you may want to re-think your strategy with the teachers. Something happened when you locked them out of their classrooms in June. There was lots more conversation -- mostly about you and what your real agenda is when it comes to public education. Teachers shared information and experiences and built up relationships that had not existed before.
A couple weeks after I won my nomination, some bloggers started posting a monologue from my Fringe play. The monologue is a frank and funny take on the sex life of a single person and the ways single people can feel isolated in our culture. It also talks about masturbation. The monologue is certainly not the most frank or explicit piece of sex-positive work I have published or performed, but some bloggers had a heyday, and I was told this was just the beginning.
"I wrote 'Angel' after being on the road for almost two years straight and was both mentally and physically drained."

No matter how it winds up, Ghostbusters 3 is not, and was never going to, please everyone. I hope this doesn't come as a surprise. So whether the upcoming 21st century adventure with proton packs is a blockbuster or just destined to become 'that other one,' I'll have mine and you can have yours.
The funny thing about today's cattle call casting was that the girls were all hanging out in the lobby of the Mondrian Hotel in bikinis. The girls were checking each other out, as well as guests and staff practically walking into walls with all these beautiful women half naked in the lobby. It was so random but so funny to observe and be part of! A teenage boy's dream!
There are all types of excellent blogs and guides to the Grind written by twiggy fitness experts; this is not one of them. Here are 10 essential tips everyday Moms need to know to survive their trips up the mountain.
My hometown, Vancouver, is the real leader on Canadian urban climate initiatives. It has the lowest greenhouse gas emissions of any major North American city -- and they're continuing to drop.
That's politics. The public gets irate over the small amounts because they can relate to them. But the funny thing is that politicians who get the small things right generally don't screw up the bigger ones.
Last December a new B.C. government directive went into effect, requiring condo buildings to prepare a depreciation report that gives prospective buyers details about expected long-term expenses or problems. Despite the new rule, only about one quarter of the stratas across the province have commissioned depreciation reports so far.
Both literal and figurative rain clouds hovered over B.C.'s Pemberton Music Festival, but it didn't stop the event from raging on with everything it had.
Despite industry claims to the contrary, British Columbia's carbon tax has not hurt the province's agricultural sector, a new Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions study concludes. Further, the study suggests that the more than $25 million worth of competitive "relief" that the provincial government has granted the industry in recent years may not have been necessary.
