It’s a prettier picture with photographer Kristi Yarcho

This summer, I sat down to be interviewed by Karen Puder, the founder of one of my favorite Chicago blogs, Bubbles in Bucktown. She brought a wicked good photographer with her, a gal named Kristi Yarcho – owner of Made to be Mine. I loved how colorful and natural her shots were and wanted to show her off a little more. Check out my Q&A...

A former Skinhead and a Jew walk into Soho House…

A copy of Romantic Violence fell into my lap recently. Ordinarily, tell-all memoirs of a reformed skinhead are not my thing, but after casually perusing the first few pages, I was hooked.

My BFF, Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton and I go way back, more than a decade to be precise. When I was 12 years old and in the 7th grade, I was part of special team of reporters called “The Scoop Troop” for the Chicago Tribune’s Kid News section. One day the advisor of the section, a renowned reporter named Lou Carlozo, called my mom and asked for her permission...

In Need of a Good BJ

Bruce Jenner, that is. I literally I cannot stop thinking about Diane Sawyer’s interview with Bru-zer. I set the DVR to tape the special at least three weeks before the interview, so you can imagine the horror I experienced when my husband accidentally unplugged the receiver moments after Bruce confessed he is, for all intents and purposes, a woman. In fact, can’t remember saying “What...
