This. "A hate group is a hate group the day after someone takes a shot at them just like the day before."

When George Lincoln Rockwell, the American Nazi Party leader, was shot and killed in 1967 it was wrong. Same with George Wallace (who was gravely wounded and paralyzed, not killed) in 1972 or with Meir Kahane in 1990 - precisely because as a society we value free speech and we also don't allow civilians to kill people they don't like. But just as with these other worthies, we should prosecute the offenders (perhaps difficult in this case since at...

Congratulations to the Cambridges! Wonderful news for America's greatest ally. I couldn't be happier. Please enjoy this interview with my friend and colleague +Victoria Arbiter, a stunningly knowledgeable royal expert.

Revolting & deeply upsetting to see this happen in #NewYork .

There is a disturbing case of racism on Long Island. An African-American family got a nasty letter claiming that the Suffolk County Village of Lindenhurst is overwhelmingly white and "you don't belong here."

You've noticed a lot of photos of celebrities wearing red clown noses. It's part of an effort to bring attention to "Red Nose Day," which started in 1988.

Since the royal history of the name Charlotte isn't particularly recent (and I'm sure that's why it's the first name--limited burden), here is a refresher from +Victoria Arbiter!

I asked royal commentator and former resident of Kensington Palace, Victoria Arbiter to give her thoughts on the newest Cambridge's name, Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. "William and Kate's decision to name their daughter Charlotte Elizabeth Diana has largely been met with worldwide praise," Arbiter told me via email. "With a long royal history it is a traditional …

My friend and colleague +Chris Sosa conducted this moving interview with Kaya Thompson, the latest (I believe) woman to accuse Bill Cosby of sexual abuse as well as emotional and mental abuse. Thank you to Chris and to Care2.com for lifting Ms. Thompson's voice so we can all hear her.

Blogger & Social Media Consultant
Introduction

I am a writer with eclectic taste who has loved writing since I was a small child. I have extensive experience with writing non-fiction, including marketing copy for blogs, marketing copy crafted into tweets, heavily researched editorials and media criticism for my own blog, how-to columns, product reviews, recipes and more. I write freelance expository articles and editorials for the web, most notably for Textbroker.comGather.com, and private clients.

I worked for a year as the primary public relations representative for a local entertainment company in upstate New York, ADHD Entertainment, LLC. This involved using multiple social media platforms to promote the brand and its artists; this included ghostwriting tweets. I have experience running PR & social media for a financial blog as well, and have recently re-connected with ADHD Entertainment to copyedit and help ghostwrite a series of memoirs, among other projects including some modeling.

I am a May 2008 college graduate and am already published across the web, and I am looking forward to expanding my writing career, particularly on the Internet. I love news and media and I make sure to pay attention and read all different styles of writing with an open mind. I run a community center for the children of Baby Boomers, known as Generation XYZ, which combines blogs, discount shopping, business opportunity, entertainment and non-profits. Through the Twitter account associated with this company, I have created social media buzz and helped raise funds for pre-eminent non-profit organizations such as Doctors without Borders (Médicins sans Frontières), Baby Buggy, and charity: water.

My Bachelor’s degree is a Bachelor of Arts in English with a concentration in Rhetoric (and a minor in Theatre) from Binghamton University. Follow me on Twitter @TheGrottoTweets.
