Monday Blogs: Best Bada#! Female Characters and Why We Love Them

I love strong female characters. And since it's women's history month, I thought a blog about some of my favorite badass female characters in TV, movies and literature and why they rock, would be fun. So here it goes!

It’s Just Not That Simple – Please Stop Trying to Make It That Way

This week the US is faced with yet another policy shift - increasing deportations. Whenever I ask people who are in favor of this policy why they support it, they say it will make our country safer and get rid of illegal immigrants who take Americans jobs. Why would this be bad?

Nothing keeps me from the Lorelai ladies.) Along with periodically catching up on episodes of Atlanta and Nick Cage, Search Party is really the only other show I watch consistently. It's like HBO’s Girls and Veronica Mars had a baby with Sam Spade! (Yes, I realize that sounds crazy. But the show is crazy – crazy good!) And, of course, since my mind went to Sam Spade, it then took the not so far leap, where my mind is concerned, to detective novels.
