Jill Miller Zimon blogs from Northeastern Ohio -- a hotbed in the fight for clean air -- on Writes Like She Talks. She has a joint degree in law and social work from Case Western Reserve University, and she has had a varied and fascinating career, as a multimedia journalist, a community activist, and a deeply involved room mother at her children’s schools. Her piece about a recent journey with her family is a wry and touching look at being a more capable mom. "She is very powerful, so be nice to her,” says former Ohio Board of Regents Chancellor Eric Fingerhut.
