Advice for the modern woman

My column in the NY Post today is a riff on the ridiculous “Modern Man” column in the NYT but also my serious top-5 pieces of advice for women (which I not-so-secretly hope to turn into a book-using lots of supporting evidence I’ve collected-but first I have to stop having babies).

The rich and the poor

It’s unfair to call Brooklyn parents, who don’t want their kids to be zoned out of a popular but very overcrowded school, racist. They’re actually classist.

Poker is not a crime

I have a piece in the New York Observer on my history in the underground poker clubs in NYC. It’s time to legalize poker, it’s long past the time.

Carly Fiorina and the presidency

My second piece of the day is on Carly Fiorina. She killed in the debate last night but it’s a tough road for non-politicians in presidential primaries. I used my 30k 1-year graduate degree from NYU to analyze this one.

Love&College/Rambo III/Fox News

I have a column in the NY Post today on the lopsided college attendance rates (women outnumber men in college by 34%) and what that means for women seeking a similarly-educated mate. I conclude women should stop using ”“college degree” as shorthand for what we really want in a romantic partner.”

On a totally different note, I review Rambo III, one of the most widely viewed films on Netflix, on the Decider website.

Finally, I was on Fox&Friends last weekend discussing a dad who is setting up a trust fund for his daughter but not his son, you can watch it on the awesome Grabien site.

Dead Syrian boy on a Turkish beach

The world has ignored Syria for years as over 200,000 people have been slaughtered. Aylan Kurdi’s death should hopefully lead to ignoring it no more, my latest in the New York Post.

Rudeness and the plastic face

I’ve been behind on updating here. My column in today’s NY Post is how we are ruder than ever and, if we’re honest with ourselves, we love it. My column last Monday, also in the Post, is how young celebrities are driving a spike in teenage plastic surgery. If you only read one paragraph of it, make it the last one.

People just keep having kids and nothing seems to stop them

With all the men at the first two GOP debates, I argue on that it was two women who won the night: Carly Fiorina and debate moderator Megyn Kelly.

Pot and Jon Stewart, but not at the same time

I had a piece in the New York Post on Tuesday on how it’s way past the time that we decriminalize marijuana.

And today I’m on on how I won’t miss the partisan hack Jon Stewart.

Sorry, men of Clear Lake, WI, I’m taken.

I’ve got a piece in the NY Post today on my personal experience with online privacy being an illusion. Last week, someone used my FB pictures on an online dating site.
