Post by Alina Adams. There was an incident at school. I won't go into details due to privacy concerns but, rest assured, parents were called, meetings were had, penalties were leveled. It was big! My son has one version of events. His teacher has another. Show More Summary
My recent post — Acquisition Addiction — has caused a bit of reader consternation that The Agitator might view the ‘acquisition’ and ‘retention’ sides of fundraising as an ‘either/or’ proposition. I don’t want to leave that impression. Of course nonprofits need to prospect for new donors. However, what I am interested in (and I know […]
My chemotherapy, which until now has had fairly predictable side effects, seems to have entered a less predictable phase. This means that my fatigue level changes from day to day, and with it my blogging output. So some days you'll see a bunch of posts, and other days you'll see one or two. Show More Summary
My favorite part of covering the Atlanta Hawks games the last two weeks was watching the The Air Elite Sky Squad perform crazy stunts. This group performs the most insane aerobic basketball dunks this side of Dominique Wilkins in his prime.… [ Read more ] [ Subscribe to the comments on this story ]
I was having a wonderful time shooting pictures of the Rolex 24 at Daytona, perched on the side of the berm beside the International Horseshoe for the fireworks show. That is, until I hit my eyeball with my camera. Contact popped out. Lots of pain. Oh, cool, I only have the use of one eye. Read more...
Arcade Fire member Will Butler’s solo record Policy is shaping up to be mighty intriguing. Lead single “Take My Side” was a wiry blast of garage rock, a sound Butler veers far away from on the album’s second single. “Anna” is a propulsive new wave track laden with horns, synths, a striking piano figure, and [...]
Across the street from my Brooklyn apartment sit a stack of white plastic chairs, slowly accumulating a layer of snow. On the other side of the country, three more of those same chairs are scattered around my parents' pool, while in Yemen, I imagine, rows upon rows of them are lined up for a wedding.

It left me bereft. After 35 years, my favorite Chinatown breakfast spot closed. East Corner Wonton faced a grimy New York side street, literally in the shadow of the Manhattan Bridge. Denizens of the methadone clinic around the corner...Show More Summary

The album I’m about to talk to you about might be the most significant record I’ve ever written about. A lot of us on this site enjoy the rougher or rawer side of music and this record could be described in no other way. Even if my writing doesn’t inspire you to listen to these [...]
Today's question is on how to deal with sexual side effects of certain antidepressants.

During the President's State of the Union address this week, he proposed a plan for restructuring the tax code to help middle class families. While initially appealing, his proposals are decidedly one sided. I expressed my displeasure...Show More Summary
I’ve never been afraid to experiment with my hair. It’s naturally a chocolate brown, but I’ve colored it orange, red, black, blonde, and most recently, purple. I’ve had hair down to my butt, side bangs, front bangs, angled bobs, andShow More Summary
If you've followed my reviews for these years, you know that one of my biggest pet peeves in American films (and America in general) is our unhealthy, dangerous worship of soldiers, where every American soldier is considered a hero who...Show More Summary
Robert Ross had his drone less than a month when it became a "flyaway." His pancake-size drone, a Christmas gift from his wife, caught an air current on the North Side last week and never looked back. "I was flying my drone at Jonquil Playlot Park," he recounted in a lost-and-found ad on Craigslist. "It got caught up in the jet stream and blew away. Show More Summary
There’s a great e-card that reads: “Dear whatever doesn’t kill me, I’m strong enough now. Thanks.” It was the second most-liked item I posted on my Facebook page. The first was a quote by William Gibson: “Before you diagnose yourself with depression or low self-esteem, first make sure you are not, in fact, surrounded by xxxholes.” […]
