THE WESTMINSTER DOG SHOW… ON ACID!

on February 28, 2012

Pothead vs. Pillhead

on February 24, 2012

The first psychiatrist who diagnosed me as bipolar and suggested I go on lithium ended up facing the wrath of my mom, a master in the art of passive-aggressiveness. ?Have you asked her how often she exercises? How healthy she eats?? (She said this while eyeing the McDonald?s Value Meal on the doctor?s desk.) ?How […]

Thomas Bradshaw

on February 24, 2012

When we visit playwright Thomas Bradshaw at his small Park Slope apartment, he?s dressed in a preppy ensemble, ruminating on the display of plastic dinosaurs that his neighbors have set up in the in front of the brownstone. He seems unexpectedly affable ??? a far cry from the controversial author known for ?penning brutally honest […]

DOGMAGEDDON – ABORTION A-GO-GO

on February 22, 2012

In the past week, two Republican-backed anti-choice bills made their way through their respective state legislatures: 1. Oklahoma?s??Personhood Act??seeking to define life at the moment of conception; and 2. Virginia?s?bill forcing abortion-seeking women to undergo invasive ultrasounds.
