I can't speak to what the situation for women outside the US is. God knows in some countries it is nightmarish. I do know from my own experience what the arc has been in this country. I came of age when women's' salary scale started well below mens' starting point. I went into military service when women were first integrated into the service as a whole. Middle-aged men who had never worked with a woman work for me. I dealt with assorted belittling terms, sexual approaches that I never sought or desired. With this background, I read this column and said "Give me a f%#king break." Cry me a river. You don't have the first clue what disadvantage or struggle is. Get a life and find a real problem.
I am trying to figure out when Tucson had a "proud public-school system." I moved here in 1988. We didn't pay any attention to the school district because I never DREAMED that a school district could be as bad as TUSD. So we are a lot of beans and rice to be able to send our daughter to parochial and private schools. If charter schools had been around then we'd have been there in a heartbeat. And not because my offspring is so bright but because she had a common learning disability and TUSD wouldn't deal with it in spite of the two-inch file I brought with me, documenting the diagnosis and previous actions taken.
With Napier we have a chance of a sheriff who can and would hold his own in dealing with LaWall.
Dr. Carmona is a remarkable man but he's an economic ignoramous. He thinks Obamacare is economically sustainable without rationing. I guess Econ 101/102 wasn't a required course in pre-med.
I did the math. That means a little over six flights more each day. I don't grasp how this is such a significant impact. I would also point out that "night flights" don't mean they fly when the ten o'clock news is on. That means they take off at some point after official sunset. That's pretty early in the winter.
I have rarely read such utter drivel.
It started when the national organization started making political decisions for local councils. When an organization like GSUSA starts making decisions based on politics and not on what's good for the girls, you can expect push back from those with different views.
