I have a tilted uterus and during my last pregnancy, I lost 6 liters of blood. I almost died. I can’t have this baby. Why don’t they understand that? —

The cat will be responsible for acquiring 10-15 projects per year in the True Crime and Politics categories. Her first acquisition, “Who Killed the Backyard Blue Jay,” is a harrowing non-fiction account of the case of what really happened to the dead bird found in a suburban backyard in 2007.
This is the best personification — catification — I’ve seen of the voices in your head that are always judging you as you write…
