En 25 ans passés sur les bancs de votre école, je me suis épanouie. Bien au-delà de la couleur de votre peau, qui est la même que la mienne, j’admirais vos faiblesses, parce que vous avez su les convertir de passives à actives.

It was thus impossible for me to refuse when they asked me to pen an op-ed on Michelle Obama: their [...]
It’s quite obvious how much I follow, love and analyze Pop Culture. Its dirty secret is that it has too often harboured & rewarded mediocrity. But mostly, it was camouflaged clowns, mascots-like characters that if nothing else, entertained us with their lack of any intellectual merit. Right away, names like Kato Kaelin, Larry Birkhead, Joe [...]
I’ve before voiced my opinion on Katie Couric. Despite my unfavourable words towards the overpaid anchorwoman, I had begun to root for her again following her Tour de force during the Sarah Palin interview.
