weekly reading — is the boss a classy cheater?

Salon’s Rebecca Traister has been one of my favorite writers for years. She always has an interesting take on women and pop culture, and her bright, graceful, self-aware writing counteracts a lot of the stereotypes about humorless feminist criticism. This week, she wrote a funny but thoughtful first-person piece about her reaction to the details of Bruce Springsteen’s alleged affair with a woman in his neighborhood. On the heels of this week’s revelation that my UVA classmate  Tiki Barber, who always seemed a cut above philandering pro athletes, abruptly left his wife (who is 8 months pregnant with twins), Traister’s thoughts resonate.
