Rehashing Women’s Studies

I added a new link to the side: Sociologists for Women in Society. They’ve issued a report card grading gender parity in academic departments and scholarship at the nation’s universities. Additionally, they note the worst abusers. Check out the report, it is a good read.

Elena Kagan

Solicitor General Elena Kagan has been nominated, OFFICIALLY, to the Supreme Court to replace Justice Stevens and is now in her second day of Confirmation Hearings.  Now, doesn’t it seem odd that no one seems to be able to identify anything about her?  Perhaps, that is not such a bad thing.  The enemy, a.k.a. the […]

So, to start this off with guns […]
