Superheroines and the romance of snail mail

Being a female film buff can be kind of upsetting. For example, it’s often illogically assumed that you couldn’t possibly be into blockbusters like this winter’s Django Unchained, because of, like, blood and stuff.

Fortunately, this issue doesn’t always go unaddressed. This past weekend, Barnard hosted the third annual Athena Film Festival, dedicated to showcasing films pertaining to women and leadership. One of these films was "Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines."

Speaking of American superheroines… who didn’t feel a rush of pure and total ecstasy when Beyoncé redeemed herself at the Super Bowl after that unseemly inaugural debacle?

Or perhaps nothing can make you feel anything close to ecstasy because you’re too miserable about the impending death of snail mail, as foreshadowed by the USPS’s recent announcement that it will soon discontinue Saturday’s mail.
