On Two Victors

This was a wonderful piece, thank you.

And there is a special place in hell for people who post spam on an article like this.

On Ruth Bader Ginsburg: "I had to be told by my law clerks, what's this Notorious."

For me, the Jabot of Smug Superiority to Haters is everything. I hope it has tiny trollfaces embroidered on it. U MAD?

On If You Don't Think This Is About Misogyny, There Is Nothing Wrong With You

"the pain that we experience as women—even physical—does not give us the right to tell people there’s one way to think or feel, or to assume that we have some god-like understanding of everyone’s motivations."

Cool, this is exactly the same article about FEMINISTS DOING IT WRONG that Time has been publishing over and over for the past 20 years, glad I clicked to confirm. But I guess I'm just saying that because I'm a judgmental feminist harpy

On X-Files Red, Not Lohan Red: A Haircut Trauma

I definitely sympathize with being terrified of small talk with people in public. That said, if I went into a salon and got called a hairdresser's dream and told that I should be "X-Files red," I could die happy.

Also this hairdresser sounds like a bad bitch and I want her to cut my hair.

On The Free, Beautiful $4/Day SNAP Cookbook

She does briefly address the issue of food deserts in the introduction and on the Kickstarter page:

"Ultimately, this cookbook doesn’t address those areas; instead, I based it on low-income neighborhoods in New York, particularly Inwood (where I researched most of the pricing information) and Bushwick (where I lead grocery store tours for clients of the local WIC center). Again, quoting from the book’s revised introduction: 'The meals ... use ingredients common to most low-income New York City neighborhoods. ... Naturally, prices in other cities—even other neighborhoods—will vary, so please think of the numbers as a guideline.'

I won’t dispute that food deserts are a significant problem in poor areas of America, but they’re unfortunately outside the scope of this cookbook."

Basing the information off two neighborhoods in NYC necessarily limits how applicable it is to other places. It's an unfortunate limitation, but I still think the book has some value. The best "food stamp cookbook" would be the one tailor-made for an individual or family based on their specific situation, and though that's clearly impossible to mass-produce, this book which can be mass-produced at least gives a place to start.

Why chew an almond at all ever in a world where marzipan exists?
