Why are there fewer cycling women in NYC? Danger and fashion.

Looking for an intelligent tv program to glom onto? Canada's Intelligence has been called its version of The Wire. I've seen all the episodes on Netflix streaming--it is a great show ended too soon.

How To Talk To Little Girls. Basically, please try not to make the first words out of your mouth a compliment about how cute or pretty she is. Ask some questions. Maybe pick up a book with her.

I can't stand Marketplace Money. Whenever I listen to it, I feel like throwing something. In this piece, Tess Vigeland displays her ignorance by admitting she actually took Zillow's estimates of home prices seriously even before it recently reworked its algorithm. Having lived in a place where Zillow was wildly inaccurate, I have to wonder what rock she lives under. I don't find Zillow at all accurate.

At least they sound a little shocked at the people they dug up for a story about people who bought too much house, stripped the equity and defaulted, but now think they should get another mortgage.

Why Did Wild Nail Polish Go Mainstream?

"And that's why you should learn to pick your battles" is just masterful comedy writing.

For the holiday, How To Make A Pimm's Cup. Okay, it's inappropriate to make a quintessential British drink on the 4th of July, but it is delicious.

And once you are all tipsy, play a paperback game.
