No News is Good News

So last week basically sucked (beginning with the mass shooting at Washington’s Navy Yard and concluding with the weekend’s terrorist attack at a Nairobi shopping mall — which is still happening at this writing).

MOMocrats on HLN Discussing Isues Important to Moms

You may have caught a great story about moms at the convention on Headline News over the last two days. On day one of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, I was fortunate enough to join Headline News anchor Kyra Phillips and CafeMom‘s Lindsay Ferrier as they co-moderated a panel of moms at the DNC. Moms Matter political blogger Ilina Ewen and California delegate Linnie Frank also joined us for a great...
