Dear Readers,

Happy Easter! and Happy end of Passover.

As March turned into April, I realized it was once again time to drive out to check on our shuttered-for-the-winter (and uninsulated) beach house to make sure it had not fallen into the ocean (not yet, but getting closer), blown away (only some parts of some trees), sprung a major leak (only a minor one), and to see if the contractor got anything done on our multi-year punch list (yes! but also tbcontinued…sigh).

On the way out, we listened to the first episode (more coming soon) of a fabulous podcast. Two BFFs, an octo- and nonagenarian btw, discuss life, love, and the internet. They are smart, strong women who also happen to be majorly accomplished artists-- a famous actor! and a burgeoning poet. They also happen to be denizens of this very summer community. They also happen to be, inadvertently or not, hilarious.

Long time readers have gleaned that this community is, well…very particular, shall we say. For the un-indoctrinated, I would describe it as a cross between The Amish Country and Middle School. To the first point, no motorized vehicles (battery-powered bikes are currently being hotly debated and likely legislated, if not banned). To the latter point, suffice it to say, what is more middle school than learning who does and does not get a highly coveted invitation to one of the women's famous annual dinner party? I'll tell you what is, it's realizing that you never even knew the famous dinner party existed to begin with, so you didn't know you weren't invited, but now you do!

Ninth grade, here I come.

Good news-- everyone is invited to read this list of the absolute most interesting and important news about, by, and for women in Politics, Business, Tech, Science, Sports, the Arts and Pop Culture.

The LZ Sunday Paper™ launched at the dawn of 2014. We expose and recirculate interesting content that is about, and frequently by, women in business, with a dose of ultra-relevant culture. We think that culture comes high and low, not much in between. Our audience is vast and not gender-driven. Every week we expect to deliver at least one good laugh.
