Antoinette Tuff is a Hero... and an Exception

If you haven't already heard the story of Antoinette Tuff talking an armed, mentally ill man at her school into surrendering, it's pretty amazing.  Last week Michael Hill walked into a private school of just under 900 children in Decatur, GA with a rifle and 500 rounds of ammunition.  Hill took Tuff, the school's bookkeeper, as his hostage.  She called 911 and negotiated between the gunman and the police.  She told him about her thoughts of suicide after her divorce, told him she wouldn't hate him, "anchoring yourself to the Lord," and convinced him to put down his rifle and give himself up to the police.  She was nothing short of amazing.  Aug 26, 2013 2:00 PM PT

Another Reply to Another Article About Women Making the Wrong Choices

Last week Jezebel ran an article titled, "Quitting Your Job to Be a Full-Time Mom is Probably a Bad Idea."  Even though I'm single and not a mother I've been writing responses to articles like this for over 14 years.  Time and time again feminists/women on the Left tell women that they have choices, but they get angry when women don't choose their idea of a fulfilling life.  Aug 11, 2013 10:44 AM PT

10 Secrets to Seduce a Politician? Et tu, Jane Pratt?

When I was in middle school and high school I adored Sassy magazine.  It was (ok, slightly) less vapid than Seventeen and other teen magazines.  It's founding editor, Jane Pratt, was a hero to a girl like me who wanted to be a writer one day.  In addition to the usual dating and fashion spreads, there were career advice columns and features on real issues.  Instead of the "101 Tips to Drive Him Wild," one cover story was "Make Colleges Want You Bad."  I was too young to know if they had a political bent (I'm sure they did given Pratt's politics).  Either way, I didn't care.  I loved it and wanted to write for a magazine one day.  After Sassy went under (after becoming more like Seventeen, incidentally), Pratt started a new magazine called Jane.  If I recall it was billed as Sassy's older, cooler sister.  I immediately got a subscription to that one, too.  There were the standard "How to Make Him Notice You" articles, but it always struck me as more substantive than magazines like Cosmo or Glamour.  Eventually, Jane went under, too.  Aug 6, 2013 4:09 PM PT
