MORRISTOWN, NJ - In addition to asking the women in your life what's for dinner? Can you drop me at practice? Or how was your day? Ask her...... Have you scheduled your mammogram?

In 2017, 252,710 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the United States, according to Atlantic Health System. During Breast Cancer Awareness Month,  the hospital is continuing the #AskHer campaign which encourages women to get an annual mammogram. 

Recognizing that so many women put the care of others before themselves, Atlantic Health System believes that it is up to each of us to remind the women in our lives to make their own health a priority. The campaign, originally created by a group of innovative employees, encourages breast cancer screening because early detection saves lives.

Retro Review: Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo

Retro Review: Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo (Citadel Press, 1970)

 

How does a reviewer do justice to a book called “the great American novel”? I first read Johnny Got His Gun during the Viet Nam war, when young people, nationwide, were protesting fighting in a war that was a senseless waste of life; a war in which the United States had no business participating.

The Truth About My Reading

The Truth About My Reading

I didn't get my Composition and Literature teacher at Montclair State College at all. A crusty old man with a dour disposition, Mr. Smith always seemed angry and rude. He appropriately intimidated freshmen, even me, an English major, who found this common core course beneath my dignity. Frankly, as a graduate of Highland Park High School, and a survivor of Mrs.
