I find the absurd inappropriateness more distracting than anything. It sets me to thinking about how vulnerable and/or uncomfortable the warrior is and what else would make more sense. Fantasy Armor and Lady Bits – Mad Art Lab.
Fear lives in the shadows of our hearts. It’s easy to exist there, close to the ground, so you don’t have far to fall. Courage gives us the strength to stand up and warm ourselves in the sun. Remember the … Continue reading
I’ve written a number of articles that haven’t been put out for public consumption. You see, when the world goes mad, it can be like a minefield when you try to shine a light on it. You are never completely sure when you might take a wrong step and have everything blow up in your face. And yet, silence isn’t a viable option. Continue reading
There is only just so much time in a life, and there are more than enough causes for several lifetimes. Out of necessity, we pick and chose the battles we are the most willing to fight…even (or perhaps especially) if a winning outcome is not assured. These are mine. Continue reading
My friend Diane nutshelled the insidious religi-political attack on women by a bunch of misogynistic poopy-heads. I’m frankly ashamed that so many regular citizens buy into this anti-women rhetoric…and even embrace it. If only women had actually done something to … Continue reading
On her blog, Amber Benson asks, Why Are Relationships So Hard? Scrolling down to the post’s comment section, you see that simple question generated a flood of comments in a very short amount of time. Apparently, this is a subject very much on people’s minds. And yes—mine, too. Continue reading
It’s been pretty obvious that the WPS, the top-tier women’s soccer league in the U.S., has been hanging on by its fingernails for a couple of seasons. While the business model is sounder than the previous WUSA, that doesn’t mean it might not meet the same fate. Continue reading

Paulina on modeling. Groundbreaking revelations? Not so much (…I hope; but if they are to you, you should pay attention). Something much more important and useful: honesty–which we pretty much have come to expect from P2. Paulina Porizkova: Modeling.
Going back to the 1976 Olympics, I’ve come to expect that Nancy can do anything she wants to do. Men’s basketball is lucky to have her. Nancy Lieberman: A new ‘next game’ for Hall of Fame basketball player Nancy Lieberman … Continue reading
I grew up with Star Trek. I’ve faithfully–sometimes out of love, sometimes inertia–watched all of the other series as well. They all have had their moments. Sadly, they also have had their stumbles. Here are my thoughts on each. Continue reading
This is what happens if you take equal parts A Christmas Carol and It’s a Wonderful Life and set it in Ireland with the protagonist being a doctor who has sworn off love and is instead becoming married to her career. Continue reading
The Maryland women’s basketball team has a youthful core that is very reminiscent of the 2005-06 championship team. They still have some tweaking, though, to reach that level–sometimes they look like a very young team. Fortunately, these adjustments are few and mostly “easily” done. Continue reading
