Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is a national civil rights icon who was assassinated for his work combating racial inequality; is it a great idea is to celebrate him with marked down corduroys and “casual weekend wear”?

If Saved By The Bell: The College Years taught me anything, it was that a college education comes at an exorbitant cost (and that spin-offs are guaranteed to be disappointing). While I thought Kelly Kapowski stooping to work at the skeevy cocktail bar Skeeters in order to fund her dream of being a doctor was the ultimate Faustian bargain, it seems some female collegiates are upping the ante.

Thank your local salon owner: as the popularity of Brazilian waxes and other hair-removal procedures increase, pubic lice (also known as crab lice) populations are diminishing. To the scientists who have had to explain to their mothers/labmates/bar hotties that they spend their time researching crabs and waxing trends: thank you and we’re sorry.

I’m shocked — Kathryn Bigelow, the first woman to ever win an Academy Award for directing, did not get an Oscar nomination yesterday for her film Zero Dark Thirty. The film was nominated for best picture, best actress, and for two editing achievements but Kathryn didn’t make the cut. Of course, had good company in other accomplished women who weren’t nominated for their work in film this year.

For most of companies, Casual Fridays are a big deal. They’re a chance to be more comfortable, relaxed, and express individual style. But at companies where you are allowed to do that every day, dressing formally is another opportunity to be creative. Suits and pencil skirts for the end of the week? That’s crazy talk! Nope, it’s just Formal Friday.
