Many discussions of Debra Harrell, the South Carolina mother who was jailed for “abandoning” her 9-year-old daughter at a park, fail to mention how limited child-care options are for low-income parents, especially those who are single.
My latest for RHRC. I’m done with school & back to writing consistently.

Best of Chris Evans at San Diego Comic Con 2014
“Captain Marvel is more than just an excellent comic about women. It’s an excellent comic all the way around. There’s a lot to love about Carol Danvers. Hell, there’s a lot to love about Kelly Sue DeConnick. The artwork is crisp and gorgeous—artist Filipe Andrade is my personal fave—and there’s an obvious and welcome lack of Rob Liefeld stylization. The dialogue is full of wisecracking banter and quippy casualness, and it’s an absolute delight to read. All the characters, male, female, superpowered, human, and variations thereupon, are petty, shallow, loyal, self-centered, mule-headed, embarrassed, determined, scared, charming, irritating, and everything else that makes us human. They don’t feel like decades-old characters spawned by a billion dollar corporation. They feel like real people trying their best to deal with impossible situations. Hera help me, I’d give just about anything to have a cup of coffee with Captain Whiz Bang and Spider-Woman.”
My awesome boardwalk arcade prizes:

I’m going to need a real vacation after my staycation is over! Writing, posts, & more soapboxing to come in August. Life delivered one too many roadblocks & detours the past two months… I look forward to getting back to creating & debating.
Happy Pride, everyone!
We compiled this list of tips to help Pride event organizers make their Pride events more inclusive for attendees with disabilities.
1. Ensure physical and cognitive accessibility from the start. Let’s go beyond just wheelchair ramps, raised viewing areas, and ASL…
This is so great.
