Should You Support Your Parents?

Pennsylvania state welcome signImage via WikipediaIf you are financially well off, should you support your parents? If you live in Pennsylvania and the courts consider your parents destitute, there may be no question. Pennsylvania still has laws on the books which obligate children who are financially able to do so to support their parents who cannot support themselves.

How do you feel about this? What if your parent had a gambling problem, or problems with drug and alcohol abuse? Should you be obligated to take care of them when they've spent all their money?

Fashionable Blogging

And though women and men are creating blogs in roughly equal numbers, many women at the conference were becoming very Katie Couric about their belief that they are not taken as seriously as their male counterparts at, say, Daily Kos, a political blog site.

So, why is this article in the Fashion & Style section, NYTimes? I read the front page. I read the Tech section. I do not head to Fashion & Style unless I’m bored. I’m fashionable and stylish enough for my tastes.

I’m interested in TECH. And BLOGGING.

And I don’t expect to find stories about that in Fashion & Style. Unless they’re about Fashion & Style.

Is there a glass ceiling? You just proved it, NYTimes.

I guess it's getting common to be discussing more than who get copies of the baby pictures when the split occurs...

Open Mouth, Insert Identity

Could this be the beginning of making those who post anonymous comments with the fairly apparent intention of damaging another persons character take full, put-your-identity-where-your-mouth-is, responsibility for it?
