Using this platform for a last pitch to help get our President re-elected.
Could there be any more at stake? Sure, 4 years ago the issue was a war being fought overseas, and yes I had mighty strong opinions about that. This time, the war is being waged here, and women are caught in the crosshairs (or more accurately, the pubic hairs).
There are some great videos circulating the web, some of which will make you laugh. But here’s one that I almost guarantee will bring tears to your eyes.
Gloria Steinem on the importance of this election. Take 3 minutes to watch it. NOW. And then pass it along, especially to women you know in Ohio, Florida, Virginia, Colorado and Nevada.

And as for “How Does She Do It?” – yes, I’ve taken a long break. Somehow, the future of the free world has distracted me.

Stay tuned.
In the meantime, let’s win this darn thing and start doing the work that is far more important to all of us.
