Writing in the new year ….

Posted by: ST on January 11, 2017 at 9:03 pm » 3 Comments

(Belated) Happy New Year! Haven’t written here at the site for a while but have been stationed instead at American Lens alongside my longtime partner in crime Andrea Dillon (who is one of the co-founders of AL) from the famous Lady Liberty website, and other writers with strong voices in the area. Am Lens focuses […]

Renewed the ST domain today – for another two years. Normally I renew for one year each year, but the recent horrific and tragic events that have taken place over the last week drove me to make sure the site was around for a while to come, and that what I had written here since […]


Back to blogging :-)

After taking an unintentionally long hiatus, yours truly is back to blogging. Last year saw a lot of changes for me on many fronts, and “real life” got a whole lot busier. And in the summer when the race for the NC US Senate seat between then-Senator Hagan and now-Senator Thom Tillis began to heat […]

Hey y’all, Just wanted to take a few minutes to let you know that, starting tomorrow, yours truly will be taking the next three weeks off from blogging as a bit of a “summer break.”  If anything super-hot breaks that I feel the urge to write about, I’ll check in but other than that I’ll […]


Weekend Open Thread/Tip Jar Request

Posted by: ST on April 12, 2014 at 1:05 pm » Comments Off on Weekend Open Thread/Tip Jar Request

Hey y’all. Got a lot on my plate this weekend but wanted to send a quick note to let you know there will likely be some changes soon which may allow me more time to blog than I’ve had in the last couple of years.  I’ve really struggled over that time to balance personal responsibilities […]

Reposting a slightly edited version of last year’s message (written on 10-3-12) … because I still feel the same!  Mega-thanks for the continued support! –ST Ten years* of taking it to the left, their allies in the mainstream media, and sometimes taking my own “side” to task when I’ve found it necessary. And still going […]


Creative Loafing CLT honors ST w/ backhanded compliment in Best of 2012 issue :)

Most of this has already been said about me before, but never quite so – er, artfully: MEDIA BEST LOCAL TWITTER HANDLE EVEN THOUGH WE’RE AWARE THAT PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING SHE TWEETS AND RE-TWEETS IS PURE, UNADULTERATED BULLSHIT Sister Toldjah She’s bold, that’s for sure.
