On the tenth anniversary, we aired an extended piece by Lake Effect essayist Linda Benjamin, which we’re bringing back for today’s show.

Benjamin is a Clinical Social Worker in private practice in Milwaukee. She has been a news broadcaster and has hosted a live call-in self-help show on a New York radio station.
