Maggie Van Ostrand's columns and articles cover more topics than Washington has lobbyists. Each is listed below, with a descriptive blurb. We don't know what a blurb is, but Maggie thinks they may be useful here.
  • Shrinking the News
    I was born and raised in New York City where the outside world was the distance between the door and a cab. So why would I be interested in the outside world with people and places whose names I can�t pronounce, marauding tanks, beheadings, suicide bombings, and assassinations? I don�t want to become inured to horrors. The only Middle East I�m interested in is our middle east, you know, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky. Like that.

  • 10 Classic Mean Movie Mothers
    Getting sentimental and sloppy over our moms once a year is fine for well-adjusted kids and Mr. Hallmark, who took creative advantage of Mother�s Day to celebrate sweet, loyal, dedicated moms. But we chose instead to honor filmdom�s 10 most demonic, diabolical, villainous mothers � the ones we love to hate.
