Vote '08:
The Body Politic

Lisa Sarasohn

I recently heard a news commentator describe a small amount of money as "not enough to pay for Hillary's electrolysis."

None of his colleagues at the roundtable objected.

Choosing our next President is too important to leave to either racist or sexist slurs. Yet the media seem to make degrading references to Hillary Rodham Clinton and her body as if it's business-as-usual.

As award-winning author and political analyst Robin Morgan has recently written, "This is not 'Clinton hating,' not 'Hillary hating.' This is sociopathic woman-hating."

Whatever the outcome of this election season may be, we have the historic opportunity to go beyond racial and gender bigotry in choosing our nation's leader. May we use it wisely.

Wishing you well,

Gut and Psychology Syndrome

Last summer's Belly Bulletin featured a book on belly-mind implications for physical and mental health.

A woman told me:

"I bought Gut and Psychology Syndrome for a friend whose four-year-old had been diagnosed with autism. He wasn't speaking.

"Then, after being on the diet the book recommends for less than a month, he started speaking in complete sentences and making marked improvements in other areas. That book made such a huge difference in their lives."

       Healing Bodies and Souls

Bodies & SoulsBodies and Souls is a series of stunning nude portraits of women combined with their personal statements.

Presented as a book as well as a traveling exhibit (plus a selection of photos online), the images bring forth what photographer Frank Cordelle calls The Century Project.

Cordelle photographs women of many sizes, shapes, and ages — from newborn to nearly 100 years old.

Celebrating women and our bodies as subjects, not objects, The Century Project is on view April 7-9 at Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, NC. Admission is free.
