Miss America Pageant Shaming, A Feminist Trap by Taylor Marsh
THERE ARE a lot of people, mostly women, many of whom are feminists, willing to opine on the ills of the Miss America Pageant without knowing a thing about the girls who enter them, let alone the money you can make. This is nothing new. You’d think by now there’d be a higher bar on expressing opinions and rendering judgments on another girl’s choices that are actually nobody else’s business.
It begins with Vanessa Williams…

Obama: Putin “Has Most Control Over the Sitatution… Hasn’t Used It” by Taylor Marsh
The eyes of the world are on Eastern Ukraine,” President Obama said today in his press conference, calling out Russia for not taking “the concrete steps to diffuse the situation.” Speaking with Russian President on Thursday, Obama said Putin “wasn’t happy” with the new sanctions imposed by the U.S.
President Obama also said he spoke with Prime Minister Netanyahu and that “sirens went off in Tel Aviv” while they were talking. Obama said the U.S. supports “military efforts making sure rockets aren’t being fired into their territory,” and understands that the ground invasion is to address the threat posed by the tunnels that reach inside Israel’s borders.
Then took questions from the press.
“We don’t know what exactly happened yet,” President Obama said when asked directly if the U.S. blames President Putin for the down flight.
President Obama then said a group of separatists cannot shoot down a plane using sophisticated military equipment without help from Russia. The violence is being facilitated through Russian support. If Putin wants it to stop he can make it end.
Ambassador Samantha Power gave a power statement at the United Nations today, citing “the letter ‘i’” next to the name of passengers who had perished. Then as her voice broke, stated that the letter ‘i’ stands for infant.
Oh, How We Loved You, Elaine Stritch - by Taylor Marsh
THERE will only be one Elaine Stritch and the mark she made on Broadway and the performing arts of America is indelible. Her Tony Award winning one woman show Elaine Stritch at Liberty was the jumping off point for a documentary film, which finally marked the career of this remarkable talent as it should be remembered.
The broad had longevity. …and, oh, what a mouth!
What she meant to me when I watched her… She was a marvel of white hot truth in a frame of molten humanity and vulnerability. Elaine Stritch is what any performer holds as the Diamond Standard. The gold mark just isn’t high enough.
Stritch lived at the Carlyle Hotel for many years and it’s where she made her final performance before returning home to Michigan in 2013, where she said goodbye.
Elaine Stritch is no longer here, but will never, ever be forgotten.
