Riches, And The Things Money Can Never Buy

It’s easy to forget sometimes all the things we have, when all the things we ‘don’t’ have seem to take up all our mental energy and time.

Father to daughter: I’m sorry I used to be a sexist

Has having a daughter opened your eyes to the sexism and challenges that women are facing, that your daughter will one day face? Mo Ellieithee is a Democratic political consultant in Washington, DC, and was a traveling press secretary for Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign. He is also the father of a three-year old girl. I was the guy who didn’t even notice all…
