To Thom re the Wikipedia Paul Revere page. I think you should take a look at the wikipedia page, when you mentioned that it had been changed to reflect Sara Palins ignorance, I decided to look at it since I heard that page had be locked because of all the attempts to rewrite it. The interesting thing is, there are several sections marked "the template Q is being considered for deletion". It looks like the Palinista re-write of history isn't going so well for the Palinistas. Perhaps you might want to check on the page once a month or so, just to see what happens.

Well, apparently I'm a woman, because none of the male stereotypes listed by Sam Bennett (of the Women's Campaign Forum) fit me and all the female stereotypes do. I am not a risk taker. I want to be in government to help, rather than for power. And I never ask a man "What do you do?" when I meet him. (Why would I? What do I care?) I attribute most of these to introversion. I would be a horrible chief executive, but I think I'd be a good legislator. Maybe if we had a proportional party representation system to elect legislatures I could do that. I don't agree with that system, but it would be great for me.

From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:

Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
