Pornography vs. Romance Novels

I was scrolling through my personal Twitter feed when I noticed an amusing tweet from one of my little brothers in Christ. All these women going crazy for 50 shades of gray.

Boy in Washer?

A few days ago, I had heard about the now viral video of a father who placed his toddler son in a washer at a laundromat.  However, I didn’t realize until last night that the incident took place in Camden, NJ–my second home for the duration of my PhD program.  Needless to say, I was disturbed.  After all, Camden is… Read more →
