As an authority on organized living, I feel a responsibility to clear up some recent misconceptions regarding binders.
I love binders. That doesn't make me some kind of 1950s throwback who panders to people who believe Planned Parenthood, Big Bird and gay people are aligned in a plot to destroy America. Big Bird just doesn't strike me as having the kind of critical thinking skills to pull something like that off.
The point is, binders play a key role in my attempt to keep the demands of career, household, parenting and delusional thinking organized and distinct. Because there's only so much a thumbtack can hold.
If there is a better way to juggle the requirements of making a living in the language-based arts while pursuing your dreams of getting the teenagers out of the house, I don't know what it is.
Paper clips, maybe?
