She proved it this Friday, when she delivered the perfect response to an internet troll who criticized her appearence.

Michelle Obama: Barack Was The Good Parent, Trump Is The…Other Parent Our favorite FLOTUS is back, with a metaphorical burn for Donald Trump. During a discussion at the Simmons Leadership Conference in Boston, Obama used a parenting metaphor to compare her husband’s style with Trump’s: “I always sort of felt like the eight years that Barack was president, it was sort of like having the good parent at home,” she said. “And now perhaps we have the other parent in the house.” Read her full statement...
This April, British explorer Felicity Aston, 40, will lead a team of 11 women hailing from both European and Middle Eastern nations on a grueling trek to the North Pole. The group, called the Women’s Euro Arabian North Pole Expedition, is attempting to reach their destination over the course of two weeks. Other than Aston, nobody on the team has ever been to the Arctic before, and if they make it, several will become the first women from their countries to reach the North Pole. Aston’s goal is...

According to historians, tales of mermaids and mermen can be traced back to the Babylonian sea deities Oannes and Atargatis in 1000 BCE. Since then, mermaid folklore has appeared in every era and every culture, from ancient Greece to Victorian England. But mermaid lore was not limited to the realm of folklore and mythology.

But I'm...

   I have the religious zest of a lemon, but still, sometimes I pray. One of the few times I prayed in a church was in Buhl, Idaho, a small farm town with more people planted in its cemetery than roaming its streets. The church was white clapboard, a picturesque Little House on the Prairie-type building surrounded by snowy fields and straight empty roads built for DUIs. Inside, the church was gussied up for Christmas. Tinsel hung in clumps from the rafters, plastic manger scenes vied...
