The Perfect Analogy


I was working on a piece about private charities and their campaigns, when I came upon a way to describe Blogger and BlogSpot. Mrs. Instapundit has a BlogSpot blog, so I asked her: "Your husband wouldn't ask you to live in a trailer park, would he?" ain't that Blogger to at "T" ?

What’s Wrong with Mainstream Reporting on Domestic Violence


Last October, I tracked hundreds of stories in the US media relating to Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Out of all those, maybe a dozen represented factual reporting with any attempt at objectivity. Mostly the public was subjected to the same baseless factoids and unsupportable statistics that have been floating around for years, and in some cases, decades. What is needed is an honest approach to the problem, free from ideological philosophies and the concerns most shelter advocates have for their shelter’s budgets and even personal incomes. While it is possible that media have steered clear of any investigation of these services in the belief that to be critical of DV services is to be seen as anti-woman, the fact that so many women are excluded by services themselves should be enough to alleviate those fears. This is a subject that is in dire need of some light and air, and the media could provide a fine and worthwhile service to the community by asking important questions, and insisting on truthful answers. I've got a post at my other blog that points out the worst and most frequent misinformation, along with some questions that never seem to be asked.

This is a short story written especially for the 1st Anniversary issue of the Storyblogging Carnival. See all the entries here! The place is a compound now. It’s set back a good hundred yards from the road, and the driveway kind of meanders through the trees and undergrowth. There’s a clearing, about an acre and a half, and though that’s always been the same, there’s what we call the big house, next to the original log cabin, a pole barn for a variety of snowmobiles, canoes – that sort of thing, and the garage. Behind the house are a couple of cement pads with RV hookups, which my husband put in himself. Everything but the cabin and its classic outhouse has been built in the last thirty years. The cabin was built as a deer hunting camp for my husband’s grandfather and three of his friends, sometime before WWI. When I saw it for the first time in 1972, there was just the cabin. Somebody along the way had put in electricity, but we still had to get water from the pump, and use the outhouse out back. The cabin only has two rooms. There’s the main room, which has...
