The Strange History of the Red Violin
They don't make 'em like they used to couldn't be more true in this case. But do instruments have souls? If any specimen has one, it's the "Red Violin." Antonio Stradivari created the one-of-a-kind violin in 1720 in Italy. When the world’s most famous violin maker made the instrument , its wood would have been close to white.

Opinion: I'm Angry at the Democrats, Too
In the wake of the Roe v. Wade reversal, my anger knows no bounds. I have cycled through many emotions since the reversal of Roe v. Wade. I wrote about my fear immediately after it happened. While I didn’t read the comments on my own piece (as I’ve mentioned before, I rarely read my comments), I did read the comments on some of the pieces that other women wrote, and the reactions were much what I expected — a bunch of misogynists frothing at the mouth, telling the writers to get over it. Now, I still have fear—but more than that, I'm angry. So, so angry.
A woman in the changing room next to me insisted on fitting into a size zero
**This is a work of nonfiction based on actual events that I have experienced firsthand; used with permission. Going into women’s fitting rooms at busy department stores always has the potential to be interesting.

Cerris Morgan-Moyer as Emilie du Châtelet in “Legacy of Light” with Lenny von Dohlen as Voltaire.(Ichi.pro) A quick inspection of the “most famous historical couples” listicles doesn’t offer many surprises. I may not know the details of their romantic lives but I’ve seen enough movies about Anthony and Cleopatra, Napoleon and Josephine, Prince Edward and Wallis Simpson, among others, to know my way around history’s top ten love stories. But I’d never heard of the intense, 15-year relationship between Voltaire and Emilie du Châtelet, the wife of an obscure but wealthy Frenchman.

Opinion: Our Daughters Have a Right to Reproductive Health Care
I’m tired of having the government involved in my health care decisions. The government is not a doctor. The government is not qualified to give an opinion on treatment. There are already enough problems with health care in the United States without adding more. Decisions about the treatment I receive are already between myself, my doctor, and my insurance.

Opinion: My Afghan Students Didn't Trust the Taliban So Why Did Our Top Negotiator Cut a Deal with Them?
(Jan Chipchase/Creative Commons) This is a longer version of my piece that first appeared in The South Florida Sun-Sentinel. Much thanks to the paper for running it. When Russia invaded Ukraine in February, the U.S. media turned its gaze to the latest episode in the reality show otherwise known as The Forever Wars. Despite the fact that U.S. involvement in Ukraine has thus far followed the same trajectory as its intervention in Afghanistan, no one in the mainstream press appears to doubt America’s intentions or its ability to defend democracy there. Meanwhile the Taliban — a regime the United States effectively handed the country over to last August — continues to impose increasingly repressive measures on its citizens.
