Gimme Shelter

You've discovered one of the numerous online homes of Mary Elizabeth Williams. I'm a writer, consultant, and radio commentator with about a thousand years experience, give or take a century. Publications I've written for include Salon.com, The New York Times, The New York Observer, TV Guide, Smith, and Yoga Journal. I've been a culture critic for PRI's The Takeaway and have been a regular commentator for the CBC. I will fight to the death for feminism and the Oxford comma, and I hate being called Mary. Oh and since 2010 I've been chronicling my experiences with Stage 4 cancer.

Mary Elizabeth's law: There are two kinds of food -- those that can be improved with bacon, and those that can be improved with chocolate.

Mary Elizabeth's paradox: And yet, bacon and chocolate do not mix.

Mary Elizabeth's addendum: But butter goes with everything.

Like most people, I'm deeply cynical. Like most people, I'm also secretly optimistic.

Enough about me. Tell me about you. I'm sure there's a story.
