Real feminism, in other words, is being starved to death by the corporate stranglehold on culture, while corporate flacks in the corporate media mock and deride feminism - based on their own distorted depictions of it! -- Michele Landsberg

The price of liberty is eternal vigilance.
May not have been said by Jefferson, but American women, especially in 2012, understand that it really applies to them, particularly after seeing sights like this:
Darrell Issa invites only men to testify about birth control,
Isn't it nice to know that Congressional Representatives, such as Darrell Issa from California, believe that only men are entitled to testify on birth control before Congress in 2012?
And the people running against Issa in 2012 - all men.

Clinton Ramblings

During the impeachment trial, Jim and I watched an old Cary Grant and Jeanne Crain movie called People Will Talk. Rent this movie and think about Hume Cronyn playing Ken Starr...

The '98 elections did nothing but demonstrate that I wasn't the only one who was tired of the anti-Clinton rhetoric. OK, so it's disappointing that he did manage to carry off a White House affair, it's not like he's the first president to have done so. Why not focus on "real news," like dealing with the nuts in the Middle East? And isn't it funny how the Newtster quit before he could be voted out of his speakership? Just Thursday morning, he was his usual defensive self, but by Friday night, he took himself out. While many trips to DC in '96, I don't picture myself living there.
