Every year, September vies with June and December for the Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals for busiest month of the year in the Calendar Olympics. So far, I'm giving it a 9.5. That, plus a set of slight (mine) physical impairments makes both time allotments even shorter and typing not so much a chore but almost, really, an irritating impossibility!
So today, enjoy the waning days of Summer and read the best of the best, from politics to tech, business to the arts, crime to pop culture. It's the news you need to know by and about other fabulous women in the news, every week.
