    I confess, my expectations kicked me in the butt again: i thought I’d see a shower of thank you’s in the responses. Instead naysayers.

  • Stereotyping 101

    Shower thought at work: Why do we need this to convey message? Is it cool still to use wide spread perceptions of profession, status or expected traits to market products?
