“Are you and Chef going anywhere?” Professor Plum asked Ms. Scarlet as he walked into the mail room.

He read the mail…. (More)

“Only to the wine cellar library with you,” Ms. Scarlet said, “to spend the weekend with the resident faculty, drinking thinking on our motto of Magis vinum, magis verum.”

“And I’ll go to the kitchen,” Chef added, “to finish the Oat and Nut Breakfast Crumble for Squirrel Appreciation Day.”

“Don’t I need to lose in the staff poker game before you do that?” the Professor of Astrology Janitor asked.

The Squirrel tapped at his Blewberry: “You don’t always lose. Sometimes you win a small pot.”

Dear Ms. Crissie,

Skeptics focus on the divisions among women’s groups, but we’re all marching towards the same thing. Whatever we want to call ourselves, whatever group we’re aligning with, whoever we showed up here with today, it doesn’t ultimately matter.

We’re taking the energy that has been galvanized by the march a year ago and turning it into a strategy and into concrete actions to really effect change. Our message is that we’re still here, that we’re not going anywhere.

Audra and Erycka in New York

We congratulate your courage and persistence. We haven’t seen final numbers yet, but the early estimates are that well over a million people took part in Women’s March events across the U.S. yesterday. Even more promising, that energy is pushing more and more women to run for office, including an all-time record number of women running for U.S. Senate and House seats. We’re confident that history will record your efforts as playing a major role in transforming the political landscape, and there are not enough words to express our gratitude.
