Taking Women’s Health to Heart

Nancy Kearson knew she had high blood pressure, but she wasn\’t aware of any other health problems until a friend urged her to see a physician four years ago. That exam may have saved her life.

Family Time

I recently returned from Florida, where I spent the Kwanzaa break (I\’ve coined a new name for the winter break that I hope will sweep the nation) with my parents. Actually, they used to be my parents. Now they\’re my son\’s grandparents. I was once my mother\’s middle child, her youngest son, one of three apple-cheeked children around which her world revolved. Now I\’m just the thing that brings the grandchild during the Kwanzaa break (I think the name is catching on).

Even Maidelehs Don Pasties

Jewish girl stereotypes get tossed — including one you might have heard about them being prudes — when \”Nice Jewish Girls Gone Bad\” makes its West Coast debut this Thursday night at Tangier.

Twisted Spinster

My friend has a red velveteen frog that lives on the arm of her red velvet sofa. Her living room has become the gathering place for our little group, five of us, all single.

East of Western — a Kosher Cornucopia

President Bush is declaring his hope for a Palestinian state loud and clear, and no wonder — it\’s almost the price of entry to the alliance with Europe that he urgently wants to revive.
