Girls just wanna have a nap!

I'm not one for all the LOLCats stuff, but me thinks I need one to describe today. Whooooweee!

The day started off by being named one of the top Latina/os to know in Chicago. Quite an honor, especially since I get to share it with the husband.

Then I had an op-ed published at NPR.com on Sonia Sotomayor's decision to quit a women's group:

As a vocal feminist, my opinions are often antagonistically questioned at parties and backyard barbecues. What is it about wanting to support women and women's rights that makes others, especially men, so uncomfortable? I find myself asking this same question in light of U.S. Supreme Court justice nominee Sonia Sotomayor's recent decision to leave a women's networking club.

And then of course still dealing with the blow back from discussing that Palin supporters were in attendance at the NOW Conference and what that might mean for the organization and feminism itself.

All of this then gets me off of my very tight writing schedule. I have much more to say, but not here! Off to the Bitch blog...

Frederick, A Virtual Puppet Performance - Read by Michael Shannon

WOW...this is my first post during the Coronavirus pandemic! I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. Thanks to the Chicago Children’s Theatre, the city’s largest professional theater devoted exclusively to children and families, for launching a new YouTube channel, CCTv: Virtual Theatre and Learning from Chicago Children’s Theatre. To kick if off we are treated to Frederick. Here's hoping this helps with your little ones. Or is a comfort to everyone of all ages. Chicago Children’s Theatre’s all-new virtual puppet performance was created while all of the artists were sheltering in place, working with resources limited to what they had in their homes or on their laptops. Frederick is directed by CCT Co-Founder and Artistic Director Jacqueline Russell. Puppets and sets were designed, built and puppeteered in a home studio by Grace Needlman and Will Bishop, CCT’s Director of Production, the creative team behind CCT’s annual series of Beatrix Potter puppet show
