I Hate Mother's Day
I feel guilty about it because I know how many people enjoy it. And I do realize that not all mothers were like mine; actually, the overwhelming majority of mothers were, thank God, nothing like mine. I am glad that so many people have good, or at le...

If a friend behaved strangely and babbled would you avoid him/her?
This is assuming that you've known the person for a few years and they've never behaved this way before. They are babbling irrationally saying, "I am very sick! I need help!" But unable to explain why.

Why are diet "experts" so down on pizza?
Sometimes I think that some health "experts" label anything that people enjoy as automatically evil. Chocolate used to get blamed a lot with no real evidence behind it. (That was back in my youth). Now pizza seems to be the health experts ...
