Op-Ed: has disparaged women’s looks — including mine. But we have bigger problems.

My intention in writing is to highlight that, while any president’s diminishing and disrespectful words have impact, there are things we can each do that will have far greater importance.

Newton’s Cradle is a common fixture in a corporate office. It is the desk toy where someone drops a little metallic ball on a string and it hits the others, sending the one on the opposite end swinging. As this is happening, there is plenty of energy spent and exchanged — and a lot of visible motion — but at the end, there they hang again. Motionless. Exactly where they started.
