When the #metoo hashtag began after the outing of Hollywood titan Harvey Weinstein as a serial, and apparently unrepentant, sexual predator, I added my voice to the growing tidal wave.

Yesterday, at my 9 – 5 gig, the internet went out. And our work e-mail, too. All I had was my phone, but I had to pretend like I WASN’T on my phone because that’s an office no-no. It was weird, you guys. I found stuff to keep me busy but it was like we went back to, I dunno, the [...continue...]
