Warning: Cuteness Alert
Yesterday, Baby Boy schmooched Baby Girl. They were sitting inside a big cardboard box taking turns kissing me, when Baby Boy turned to Baby Girl and planted a wet one right on her lips. She giggled.

Brilliant piece by friend of opedproject Theresa Amato. Brilliant, and sad: Yet one look at last week’s controversial cover of Bloomberg Business Week may hold clues as to why she was passed over.

The blurbs (though not the internal story) label Warren as a “smug,” “arrogant,”...
