Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

More Fuel on the Fire
Maureen Dowd picks up where Ann Althouse left off last week:

"As Dr. Stephanie Brown, the lead author of the study, summed it up for reporters: 'Powerful women are at a disadvantage in the marriage market because men may prefer to marry less-accomplished women.' Men think that women with important jobs are more likely to cheat on them.

'The hypothesis,' Dr. Brown said, 'is that there are evolutionary pressures on males to take steps to minimize the risk of raising offspring that are not their own.' Women, by contrast, did not show a marked difference in their attraction to men who might work above or below them."

Sigh....this is so depressing.

    "To put it in layman's terms," continued Dr. Brown, "nobody wants to marry a skank..."

    What a load of shit... apparently the brainiacs doing this study are unaware that women who hold "important" jobs tend to have to work a hell of a lot harder than men to get and keep them, and therefore tend not to have a lot of free time to have one, much less multiple, relationships... powerful women are at a disadvantage in the marriage market for the same reason doughy men buy Corvettes and big stupid SUVs, if you ask me.

    I'm with jwer on this one, but only up to a point . Observing relations between the opposite sexes, however, and from an entirely disinterested standpoint, I must say I have noticed, even amongst otherwise clued up straight men, a sort of shyness around overtly intelligent and/or sucessful women. The best get over it PDQ, the ones who don't are the ones you don't want to know. Nicht War?

    You read it here first and I said it when the child was not yet 15 - Harry is going to be the Princes Margaret of his generation.

    I meant to say, WHAT use are valets....

    Wills had the common sense to go as a lion.

    You are SO right.

    I understand Charles wants to ship him off to Auschwitz for some latent sensitivity training? A little late for that.

    I mean, where does one even GET a swastika armband these days unless from some skinhead organization, and that's a frightening thought.

    My love, I truly hate to shatter your illusions about British sensitivity but any fancy-dress hire shop in the land will hire you an SS uniform at the drop of a credit card.

    Chazzah has already dragged the poor little beast off to a drug rehabilitation centre for a day because Harry was caught toking a joint so anything is possible..

    For myself I think that the young, and Harry is very young, just don't get it about WWII and the Holocaust. Like safe sex it is just so much yadda yadda yadda from the wrinklies.
