Drop It Like It’s Hot

Can you believe a week went by so quickly.  At least this week I did not have to fork out another 250 dollars for plumbing issues.  For those of you that don’t follow me on twitter, last week my darling little Mayhem (the almost three year old) flushed a bottle of his fathers cologne down the toilet.  It blocked the toilet so badly the plumber had to take it right off to get it out.  I guess that was his way of telling his father that he didn’t like the smell of that one.  I tell you when kids aren’t making you broke, they’re driving you crazy. He is damn lucky he is so cute.

Anyway tell me all about your week and share what you have been reading or writing.  Here are a few articles that caught my attention this week.

My Shawshank Redemption: The ways in which focusing on reform can have a positive effect on recidivism.

The Job With No Paycheck: The media is quick to let Michelle Obama know that she new responsibilities now, but have we ever considered that we are asking her to work without pay?  Why is the labour of women always devalued?

Aspiring To Whiteness: Buying into the American Dream also includes embracing “the views of the dominant white society – including the prejudiced, distorted image of blacks.”
