I say this as a fellow big guy. I think it is actually important to overdress rather than underdress if you are overweight and are interviewing for a job. The common bias is to see overweight people as sloppy and lazy, and he should try and... [more]

Leaving a small child child alone, unsupervised and not within your sight in public is neglectful. I think this mentality is exactly the thing that Lenore Skenazy has been talking about for years. The idea that our children should be in... [more]
