    A Date With Civic Duty (Part One)

    I have been reminded by friends and coworkers who have been called for jury duty that often you are required to show up for duty.  Then, you do nothing but sit in the courthouse all day simply waiting around for something to happen, only to find out that the case has been settled out of court.

    The Workplace Dress Code Double Standard

    Do Gender Roles Apply to Weight Gain?
