We have a guest post from the author today, talking about the work, and its queer characters. SPOILER ALERT: Dr. J. H. Doyle is not what you think.

Last Person to Receive a Civil War Pension Dies

Irene Triplett died last week at the age of 90. She was the last person in America to collect a pension from the Civil War, $73.13 each month from the Department of Veterans Affairs right up until she passed away. Her father Mose Triplett was both a Confederate and US soldier (a North Carolinian, he defected from the Confederacy halfway through the war) and Irene was eligible to receive his pension after he died because of disability. After Mary died in the 1920s, Mose married Elida Hall. He wa...

The 10 Best Sherlock Holmes Stories

Over the course of 40 years during the late 19th and early 20th century, Arthur Conan Doyle published 60 Sherlock Holmes tales in the form of four short novels and 56 short stories (which are generally published in five separate collections). The adventures of Doyle’s iconic detective proved a craze from the start, and since then, no character has been as reproduced and adapted in film, television, stage, and the printed word.  I’d long been intrigued by the idea of Sherlock, but wasn’t real...

Comment on vermontucky lemonade by Irene

I made this and opted for the slightly less sweet version. It was delicious and seemed to improve with every sip (not the effect of the alcohol…lol). I particularly appreciate explaining how to make it more or less sweet, rather than providing a one measure fits all recipe. Cheers!

A physician mother embraces the power of “and” during the pandemic

I struggle for words to describe life in the season of COVID-19. Depending on the day, I need at least a few adjectives: “peculiar,” “fine, all things considered,” “terrifying.” “Joyous” and “anxious” certainly make odd bedfellows in my brain. As a mother and physician living this new reality, I’ve been extra thankful for Irene, who […] Find jobs at Careers by Search thousands of physician, PA, NP, and CRNA jobs now. Learn more.

Maryland family throws ‘gayceañera’ after 15-year-old comes out

Hoping to be a true “support ally” when her 15-year-old son came out as gay, Heidi Irene did her research and discovered that many LGBTQ+ individuals have to come out again and again, since we’re often presumed cisgender and straight until proven otherwise. “I thought to myself, I suppose that’s why people have coming out parties, so they can do it all at once and not have to come out as often,” Irene told PinkNews in a recent interview. So she devised a beautiful way to announce reintroduce Ai...

Word of the week: Boomer

On January 3, at their annual meeting in New Orleans, members of the American Dialect Society voted (my) pronouns the word of the year for 2019, and singular they the word of the preceding decade. You can read more about those selections and here – and, shortly, in my new column for the Visual Thesaurus.

The missteps of Sears are plain to see in the bold letters on banners outside and inside its soon-to-be-shuttered stores. “Store closing.” “Nothing held back.” “Everything must go.” For many Sears locations in Southern California, this holiday shopping season represents the last Christmas for an iconic brand that was, in its heyday, the of its time.
