Homeless Mom Shanesha Taylor Charged With Child Abuse After Leaving Two Kids In Car During A Job Interview

shanesha taylor

Earlier this month, police arrested a mother in Scottsdale, Arizona, for leaving her two young children in the car while she went to a job interview.

On March 20, 35-year-old Shanesha Taylor, who is homeless, parked her car containing her two-year-old and six-month-old sons in the sun while she went to her interview. Someone saw the children by themselves in the car, which reportedly had the windows slightly open and was hot inside, and called the police. Police arrived and freed the children; Taylor showed up 45 minutes later and was arrested for two felony counts of child abuse. She said she couldn’t find anyone to take care of her kids, so she left them in the car alone. She was released early this morning from jail; her children are now in custody of Child Protective Services.

“She was upset. This is a sad situation all around. She said she was homeless. She needed the job. Obviously not getting the job. So it’s just a sad situation,” Scottsdale Police Department told KPHO.  Keep reading »

11-Strange-But-Totally-Expected-Things-You'll-Hear-When-You-Visit-A-Vortex

This weekend, I visited the vortexes (actual plural is vortices, but I didn’t want to confuse you) in Sedona, Arizona. More on the actual trip to come, but for now, let’s focus on these spiritual energy centers. What exactly is a vortex? Good question. And confusing to try to answer. According to our grey-haired, crystal toting, feather-clad tour guide, a vortex is like a human accupressure point, but on the earth. Following the metaphor, vortices fall upon certain connective points the planet’s energetic meridians, (like body meridians in Eastern medicine) known as “ley lines.” Keep reading »

A Dramatic Wild Horse Rescue

Watch Video

Are you a horse girl? I’m a horse girl. And in another life, I would do what photographer Becky Standridge does. She spends her days in Arizona’s Tonto National Forest, documenting the wild horses that live there and helping to catalog the herd and its migration patterns. One day, while watching the horses, she managed to capture a dramatic water rescue on film. “People think horses don’t have a soul,” says Standridge. “But the soul of a horse is much bigger than man knows.” [AZ Central]

It’s come down to this. The Final Four. (There’s still time to vote for either Rush Limbaugh or the Pee Drinker, by the way!) And what an interesting matchup this one is: a state that is intent on making sure getting and remaining pregnant are the sole options for sexually active women versus a sex toy for men that mimics the, uh, feeling of having sex with a pregnant woman’s vagina. So, you tell us — which is crazier?

After Round One of our Real March Madness competition, Courtney Robertson’s man-ipulating ways stole Phaedra Parks’ relatively harmless thunder. Meanwhile, Arizona’s desire to allow doctors to lie to pregnant women about fetal birth defects trumped Virginia, with their fetal personhood and transvaginal ultrasound bills. At the end of the day, which is the crazier threat?

We have nothing personally against the states of Arizona and Virginia, two fine locations in the lower 48. Arizona is home to the Grand Canyon, and our own Ami Angelowicz was born and raised there. Virginia is the proud state that brought us Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello and the Smithfield ham. However, when it comes to those of us with a vagina, these two places have been the worst lately.
