Millennials Are Feeling the Bern

February 02, 2016

by Lucy Lansing

Millennials are excited about Bernie Sanders. When young women have a choice in the Democratic Party between an old white man and an actual woman (poor Martin O'Malley won essentially 0% support in the Iowa caucus), it's surprising that Hillary is becoming less of a legitimate contender. Bernie Sanders appeals to young people because of his openness and willingness to engage opposition on important issues. He is unpresumptuous--an unkempt grandfather who is adorably outraged at the state of American government.

Lunch with Teri / Dinner with Alice / Weekends with Sarah

January 28, 2016 Sarah and I

by Sallie Bingham

In the midst of all the vicissitudes of life, I find myself ever more grateful for my women friends—few, of course, are in my very closest circle, the circle I’ve named the Circle of Trust. These are the women I know I can call on in times of need—fortunately, quite rare—who will understand what I want perhaps better than my relatives, who oversee my progress toward some form of wisdom with courage, humor and compassion. And, above all, tell me the truth.
