I love lists. I make them and I read them. As I make a list I am able to focus and organize thoughts.
Here's a list from a recent article I read of the Top Employers in Texas:
David Weekley Homes
Methodist Hospital System
Whole Foods Market
Interesting. These are the employers voted Best Places to Work. Just a little trivia for you.
So, I'm pondering what is the ratio of male to female executives in these companies? According to Katie Couric, always my source for the unvarnished truth, women are still being held back by men. Poor Katie. She's a multi-millionaire and her show is in the tank but she still feels the need to pen an article whining about the fact she was the only female news anchor in the White House briefing last week before the President's speech on the war in Iraq.
She said it is always a thrill to be in a White House briefing , "no matter who is in the Oval Office", getting her editorial jab in, and said the predominantly male atmosphere was 'jocular'. What? Did she think this word would mean an atmosphere of jocks?
"Don't more women deserve a place at the table, too?" I would venture to say, no, not if Couric is the cream of the crop. She laments the feminist movement of the 1970's as waning, (hello!), and the lack of women in the House of Reps or Senate. How did she miss commenting on her girl, Nancy Pelosi, and the fact that she's the first woman Speaker of the House?
Women are 51% of the American population. More women than men apply for college entrance. Wages for women have never been higher, (right, Katie?), and the argument that women are under the thumb of men is just plain silly. More liberal victimization pap.
Katie, put on your big girl panties and speak as a mature woman. Whining is not becoming on anyone.
