i <3 Seattle Times
Even though they never gave me a chance at a job, I still love reading The Seattle Times. People in this area I think are spoiled by having a Pulitzer Prize-level newspaper.
My favorite columnist Jerry Large has written some good columns recently on rap music, cultural traditions, the 'coolness' of hybrid SUVs, and even video games. I suspect most people who read his work are baby boomers / parents, but I still enjoy his writing anyways.
Why I avoid trucks carrying heavy cargo on the freeway... a mother and daughter revise the law, and rebuild their lives.
An interesting article on marriage & divorce... marriage as a learned behavior; can divorce be foretold? According to the study, the risk factors for divorce:
-Having divorced parents
-Living together before engagement
-Being previously divorced or marrying a divorced partner
-Having a child before marriage (and, to a lesser extent, getting pregnant before the wedding)
-Being much older or younger than your spouse
-Marrying someone of a different race
-Following different religions or no religion
-Having low education levels
Divorce rate in America is still around 40%.
