    Now, there I cannot go with you on the property issue. However, if you can't pass a reading and writing test that involves a higher level of thinking and ability to create, it is indicative of insufficient ability to select governance. Spewing back the party lines as spread by sound bites does not qualify you to vote, thus spake me. Some objective evidence of living thought has to show.

    RH, I can't say why there are so few #2s or #1s in the general business world, but there are enough to convince me it is possible. I've seen them in operation. I'd go so far as to say those I've seen got there by means other than talent, thru doors that were forced open by gender issues, not skills. Unfortunately true, but true no less. To my mind, equal opportunity means equal talent. That said, there is no reason I can see that equal talent does not exist, nor do I say that opportunity isn't unequal for whatever reason.

    Male and female power trips are quite common and equally repugnant to me. I've seen both. Read "The Peter Principle" and see what can happen; it is more common than you imagine. Scum, like cream, tends to rise.;)

    Sorry SC...Been pretty busy this week..and remembered a couple of great pieces of advice I heard over the years...

    But this old song that I'm sure you're familiar with came to mind....

    ;)




    PUT ANOTHER LOG ON THE FIRE
    Shel Silverstein

    Put another log on the fire.
    Cook me up some bacon and some beans.
    And go out to the car and change the tire.
    Wash my socks and sew my old blue jeans.
    Come on, baby, you can fill my pipe
    And then go fetch my slippers.
    And boil me up another pot of tea.
    Then put another log on the fire babe,
    And come & tell me why you're leaving me.

    Now don't I let you wash the car on Sunday?
    And don't I warn you when you're gettin fat?
    Ain't I a-gonna take you fishin' with me someday?
    Well, a man can't love a woman more than that.
    And ain't I always nice to your kid sister?
    Don't I take her driving every night?
    So, sit here at my feet cause I like you when you're sweet,
    And you know it ain't feminine to fight.

    So, put another log on the fire.
    Cook me up some bacon and some beans.
    And go out to the car and change the tire.
    Wash my socks and sew my old blue jeans.
    Come on, baby, you can fill my pipe
    And then go fetch my slippers.
    And boil me up another pot of tea.
    Then put another log on the fire babe,
    And come & tell me why you're leaving me.

    Did he perform it as well? I remember Waylon doing it....and Kinky Friedman......But what I remember most is Shel wrote it in the early to mid 70's , sometime....I just loved his songs and his books...

    I miss his way with words and his sense of humor, irony, and the way he looked at life...with his adult songs, and his children's songs...

    I think I heard it in my sleep last night...;)
