You’re finally in your seat, ready to get the trip going when an announcement comes over the intercom, “Passengers, we’re sorry for the delay, but looks like we’re going to be stuck here at the gate for a slight delay. When I say slight, I actually mean hours long. You may ...

My husband ruined me. Yes, he completely ruined me. Growing up, I was quite the independent girl. I could stay all alone overnight without grasping a baseball bat at every little sound. I was even able to put together a bookshelf all by myself — with tools. However, once I married, I began to rely on my husband for so many things that I use to do myself. Even after five years of marriage, those feelings haven’t changed. In fact, I realize I need him more than ever.

Some time back I wrote a column about "the mob mentality," how society, especially on the internet, will rush to judgment about any number of topics without any real facts or proven truths to back up their opinions.
