The poem in today's Writer's Almanac is wonderful. I've always felt that saying a marriage has failed when a divorce ensues is oversimplification at best, judgement at worst. And my fave advice columnist, Carolyn Hax, has this to say about gender labels:
Are boys with flower gardens only part boy, and female athletes part girl? "Boy" and "girl" labels belong on lavatory doors, not on the choices kids make.
Monday is off to a good start. So much so that I question whether this is Monday at all.
