I am ancient, and when I was little my Mom would take me to Lord & Taylor for back to school, and then we would have lunch there..which was the best part. I was crazy about department store tea rooms, Bloomies, Bergdorf all had restaurants and it all felt very glamorous to a little girl in the late 50's and early 60's.
She paved the way for Alison Roman.
It just seems like she could probably lighten up on it a bit. Like, I don’t know anyone who thinks she’s actually going to meet up with her Hell’s Angel boyfriend once she finishes her shift bartending at the VFW or whatever.

And I know that there’s a lot about how “real victims” behave and how damaging that is—so we shouldn’t factor in her character, which is that she’s a lifelong… Read more
I honestly cannot figure out why Jezebel keeps defending this lady. The best investigative journalists have followed up and can’t confirm her story. The Obama campaign vetted Biden thoroughly before making him the VP. They wouldn’t miss this if it was real. Everything about her allegations feel wrong about what people… Read more
