Oh, 2013. In some ways, you seem almost comfortingly familiar. One of my New Year’s resolutions was to stop confusing the members of One Direction with the members of The Wanted.

The purpose behind a nurse-in is to highlight the ordinariness of breastfeeding and call attention to the absurdity in trying to ban it.

Those kinds of numbers would be enough to encourage a change in management, but there is another factor that may have contributed to Gersh’s departure from the company.

On Friday, as the coverage of the horrifying events at Sandy Hook Elementary School unfolded, we wrote about the teachers who risked their lives to protect their students. As more information has emerged, many initial media reports had to be corrected (including ours), but one thing that hasn’t changed are the stories of heroism and selflessness on the part of school staff.

The shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut this morning, which is being called “the worst school shooting in recent U.S. history,” is horrific, disturbing and upsetting in equal measure. Students who were in the school when the violence occurred were later interviewed by reporters and recounted the actions of many of their teachers once they learned that a shooter was in the building.
