I’m actually too bereft about Shep’s departure to write anything remotely thoughtful — literally the day before he told me he was leaving, I’d been saying to a GMG or G/O or G-whatever-the-fuck-we’re-calling-it-this-week colleague how much working with Shep (and Ryan, and Chelsea) had done to restore my faith in this Read more

Hill interrupting her and talking over her, domineering the conversation, focusing on ultimately irrelevant details, and refusing to answer the most important question she asks (“How did they [the bruises] get there, then?”) is behavior that so squarely fits into a box labeled TYPICAL ABUSER DENIAL TACTICS that I am Read more
