Stinky souls, insurance rates and rental cars
Recently, when I rented a car after a collision with a tree on a snowy evening before Christmas (I hate when they jump out in front of you like that), I received a rude reminder that I live on a remote island where supply and demand rule.

Stage and Screen: ‘Danish Girl’ delivers on disquieting story
“The Danish Girl” (2015) is a sensitive portrayal of the life of Danish painter Lili Elbe and is based on David Ebershoff’s book of the same name.
