British Youth Get Domestic Violence 101

During grad school, I worked part-time in a gift shop for extra money. I’ll never forget the day glamorous, model-esque bookkeeper Lucy came into work wearing dark Chanel sunglasses. I could tell something wasn’t right. “What’s going on?” I asked. Lucy lifted her sunglasses to reveal two black eyes. Thus began my crusade to help Lucy get out of her abusive relationship, which resulted in me picking up her and her suitcases on a dark corner at night, her boyfriend threatening to “beat the crap” out of me, and Lucy heading straight back to him eventually. This was my first but sadly not my last time seeing the destructive domestic violence cycle. It left me feeling angry and helpless, wishing there was something more I could do. Keep reading »

Should Boob Jobs Help Fund Health-Care Reform?

Obviously, money is a huge hurdle when it comes to Obama’s trillion-dollar health-care plan, but here’s one revenue source government officials may consider: tax on plastic surgery. The excise “bo-tax” (no we didn’t make that term up, but wish we could take credit) allegedly being floated around by the feds would be placed on cosmetic procedures that aren’t medical necessities, like boob jobs, teeth whitening, Botox injections, and face lifts. New Jersey already imposes such taxes, the revenue of which, we’d surmise, comes largely from the cast of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.” Keep reading »

Quote Of The Day: Bee Shaffer Rebels Against Anna Wintour

“I really don’t want to work in fashion. It’s just not for me. I respect her, obviously, but it’s just a really weird industry … She wants me to be an editor.
