    A perfect parable, and this week, a balm for the soul. When it comes to looking at women's reproductive rights, Antone gets at the heart of the matter, with wisdom, humor and heart.

    A timely fable about serious things told with whimsy. Poignant and funny.

    If Aesop were still around collecting fables, this would be one of the first he'd grab. Hens lay eggs. But that doesn't mean every egg has to, or even can become a chicken. Laying an egg doesn't mean the hen has the resources to keep the egg. But the "can't keep his trunk in his own business" elephant doesn't see it that way. In the battle over who makes decisions about eggs, shells crack and a lot of yolk is left on the sidewalk. Read it.
