Just in Case Inc. will donate 50% of all full-price online retail sales during the month of December to the STAYING ALIVE FOUNDATION.

Sandusky Indictment

For those of you who defend the non-action of Paterno, my guess is that you haven't read the indictment. I warn you reading this will make you sick to your stomach that NO ONE at Penn State came to the aid of these innocent children.
Where are the REAL MEN? Men who defend honor, do what's right at any cost. Apparently they don't exist in the upper echelon at Penn State.

The Silence of Joe Paterno

The cover up at Penn State has unearthed the larger question… what are our REAL priorities and responsibilities?

When you are given information of a crime against a child...when is your responsibility to that child over? Yes Joe Paterno reported the crime through the University chain and he did what he was “required to do” when it comes to the laws of the University. But why didn’t he go to the cops? Why did he believe that it was all ok when the man perpetrating the abuse was still working at the University? Why did he not act further when it was announced to not bring young boys around the campus anymore?

When we have knowledge that a child has been harmed we have a responsibility to that child to see it all through to the end, whatever that outcome may be. Paterno reported the abuse to the University but then obviously saw that nothing was being done about the abuse and yet he remained silent. There were countless others who also remained quiet to maintain the good PR for the University and the football team. There are even people who perjured themselves to cover the abuse. Children were sacrificed to maintain the University’s good PR and the money generating football team; that will NEVER be ok.

Where are the men and women who will take the responsibility to do what's right even at high personal cost- who will protect and give a voice to a child who doesn't feel they have one of their own to protect themselves.

Instead those who perpetrate great harm or perpetuate great profit are protected more than our children.

Our priorities are skewed... we need to come back to center and do what is intrinsically right and not just the minimum that is required by a company, or a university, or a law.

That is always where greatness is found and where cowards are discovered.

Only in New York... Unfortunately

Sometimes I feel as if everyone has gone crazy with these "puritanical" views or maybe they are just the extreme voices that make it through all of the 24 hour news cycles, and maybe it's just hugely influenced by the small town I live in... here's an article that was posted on KPEL, by Bernadette Lee, my favorite talk radio show host in the mornings here, and you can tell she's speaking to her "audience" - I live in a very small CONSERVATIVE town.

This is not how I remember Sex Ed/ Health Class...

I remember health class being about just that, health. I remember sex-ed in Junior High School (6th, 7th and 8th grade) and how it wasn't porn 101 it was just a very forensic class about your body and the birds and the bees. And there were a few classes about STDs that could truly make you want to lock yourself in a closet. They mentioned condoms but we never had the cucumber or banana demonstration, honestly I don't remember that even happening in high school.
I also remember that it was a big deal to "french" kiss someone in 6th grade and to have a boyfriend who held your hand in front of his friends...

Times have changed.

Now a blow job is no big deal, the girls are chasing after these little boys as if they are the ultimate prize, teen pregnancy is rampant and 1 in 4 have HPV... an STD that stays with you for life and can lead to many cancers including cervical and throat.
So you would think that Health and Sex Ed classes would now become more detailed and scary to try and get these kids to focus on something else... but the opposite is true! Abstinence only education... huh?! How does that help these kids?
There are diseases now that there are no cures for, hormonal reactions to sex that both boys and girls are unaware of and therefore unable to pinpoint and deal with.
Basically we are handing hormonal kids loaded guns closing our eyes and saying... "Good Luck with that!"

Can you imagine getting a new gun then going to a "Gun Safety" class and all they tell you is... don't shoot it til you're older and married. Class dismissed!

So what is the big deal about telling the truth to our kids? Why is it so shocking for parents and educators to partner in teaching our kids about their bodies and how to keep themselves healthy? Why is Sex-Ed suddenly being considered Porn 101? We have become a very dramatic nation... my suggestion is that we all take a deep breath and tell our kids the truth.

Up Your Pricetag!

This morning a dear friend of mine had some sage advice for another friend of ours going through some trials and tribulations... we've all been "there" and perhaps may go "there" again so I thought I would share her advice... Just in case you are "there" right now...

Thank you Paula for these words:

"If you're not being treated with love and respect, check your price tag. Perhaps you have marked yourself down. It's you who tells people what you're worth by what you accept.
Get off the clearance rack & get behind the glass where they keep the valuables! Bottom line: value yourself more! If you don't, no one else will!
Time to get yourself OFF the CLEARANCE RACK girlfriend :) ....just thought I'd share this one with you suga....xoxo's's actually a good lesson for all of us!"

Love Well. Love Wisely.

Romance Novels and Condoms

Read an interesting article the other day about condoms and romance novels and there's been a bit of a firestorm around it. I must say, I am enjoying the conversation... Condom Usage in Romance Novels.
There was a little blame being thrown towards the novels that they portray their heroines as being mostly against using a condom when they meet the man of their dreams... and that it has a negative effect on the use of condoms in the real world... hmmm. While I believe we all must take personal responsibility for ALL of our choices, I think romance novels, TV shows, movies, etc have a profound effect on our society and should take the opportunity to make a positive impact on sexual health in this country...
I read a response to the accusation in another BLOG-Family Planning and Romance where the author took the side of "it isn't the book's fault that a woman decides not to use a condom" While intellectually I agree, I wonder if the Romance Novel World could be the format where a revolution could take place, that our heroines ALWAYS make strong choices to protect their sexual health, where even on another planet, and during a different time they would all use a condom, since the readers live here and now, and are facing STD epidemics, and a huge stigma against carrying and using condoms...

What do you think? Do you want to read about your Heroine pulling out her Just In Case compact out of her purse across a crowded dinner party? Winking at her lover because he knows what's in there? I do!! ;)

Of course I had a little something to say about it so here was one of my comments:
While I agree that the romance novel isn't to blame for the negative image the condom may have, we have an epidemic of STD's HIV that the romance novel world could have a very positive impact on. I don't believe her "study" is valid in any way but I'm glad it has sparked a conversation about women and condom use. I believe women have taken a back seat in their own protection for many generations because the man was supposed to always carry the condoms... women just don't have the luxury of ignorance anymore. Ignorance can have very serious consequences these days if not kill you. My mom and I went into business to create a way for women to carry their own condoms discreetly and beautifully Just In Case compacts - so that when she meets that hero who sweeps her off her feet sex can be a bit safer... Funny enough we were featured in the Daytime Emmy gift bags... basically the award show for televised romance novels and we were almost kicked out of the bag because the "powers that be" didn't want condoms associated with the Emmy's... We have a long way to go in bridging a bit of reality in our fantasy... daytime TV hasn't had the guts to do it yet... Maybe Romance Novels can lead the charge!! xo

Throw Me Somethin' Mister!!

I live in the heart of Mardi Gras and was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to ride on one of the floats this past weekend. We threw beads and stuffed animals into a fun wanting crowd and it made me think...there's a certain element of "power" in the brief moment you are giving a small something to a few people in a crowd that went to great lengths to be in the best place they could be to receive these small trinkets.
I can relate this feeling on a small level to the many senators and why they have such a hard time cutting anything out of the budget since they have constituents in their home states or districts, waiting for their small trinkets.
Of course we told friends what float we would be on, what side of the float, and they in turn told us exactly where they would be standing on the route so we would be prepared with armfuls of the best beads just for them... but there was also plenty to evenly throw to the rest of the crowd...
In these times of struggle that we all find ourselves in, there is a collective request for people to make sacrifices, spend less, save more, so that we can all get through this tough economic environment... but somehow there are politicians who hold on to their armfuls of loot just for their buddies while neglecting the rest of the crowd...
When you have senators and government officials telling their friends where exactly to stand on their parade route so they can throw them armfuls of no-bid contracts, and pet projects, it becomes exceedingly frustrating for the rest of the crowd who get next to nothing and who would simply be happy with the basics; better schools for our kids, and the right to collective bargaining to maintain a living wage.
So even though at the end of the day we are all well aware that you are going to throw your friends a few more special items than the strangers in the crowd, let the beads fly to everyone else too so we can feel as if you are actually in office to make your whole state and country a better place where people can feel they get something from the effort they are putting forth.

Mob-Mentality and the Blame Game

I am troubled by the news lately... while I'm all for smaller government and limited spending, I always find it interesting that the first cuts initialized are the programs for health and education. While I agree there are issues with both (there are issues with any large programs) these are basic needs that need to be met in this country for us to succeed. We need healthy, educated people to create a strong nation. I also find it interesting that people are screaming for a smaller government except when it comes to abortion rights. These are the same people who believe that patients should be able to deal directly with their doctors and be treated accordingly without insurance and government butting in... except for abortions. Ms Bachmann speaks about abortions as if they are convenient drive through procedures that take place on a whim. She is insane.
Don't fool yourselves, we pay no matter what. When it comes to abortions by choice, we need to look further than the procedure itself. What is lacking on the path to this procedure? Education? self-esteem? Better adoption services? Who are the people we can reach before they get to this very dramatic and devastating result? We need to reach out our hands to these people and stop pointing fingers. We won't reach them all but we should be ashamed of ourselves if we don't try something other than making it illegal and throwing people in jail. That helps no one.
This is a billboard currently in New York... I understand it is trying to make a bold statement to start a "conversation", but I am afraid that all it will start is mob-mentality induced blame game. We are better than this and can do better by our countrymen. If you are passionate about making abortion illegal, what have you done to make it unnecessary?
