Roots. As a little girl, Linda Lou Richardson couldn't get enough of the tinny tunes coming from her parents' old battery-operated radio.

Posted 10/22/2011 in Columns

It is said that the difference between women's magazines and men's is that magazines aimed at women are all about self-improvement, and men's are about how great they are.
