And then... Once again The Meatriarchy and the Flea are reading off the same page.

Ghost, as, as I told you at the Toronto Bloggers Meeting, I've admired your series of photos of women in the past, particulary Audrey Hepburn. And, this is a great one. The Warrior Princess does look good here. But, generally speaking, I'd say that she is sharp-looking rather than simply good-looking. I like the way she dresses and her demeanour and I think those are the keys
things about her (in terms of appearance).
Margaret Wente had a good article on Rice in the Globe and Mail this week (still online). And, I have to say that her being who-she-is, where-she-is, how-she-is, is a stunning victory for what's right in the modern era. When you see Rice answering questions at the hearings investigating September 11, you can see that she's black and female and you know she's impressive and you know she belongs there. And I say this even if you think her actions in the summer of 2001 don't necessarily indicate that she did the right thing as National Security Advisor. (See the critique of her by Fred Kaplan in Slate)

This last comment came via email. I posted it myself (with the author's permission) because the Flea has been giving him grief posting comments. Has anyone else had this problem? Please email me and let me know. Theories as to why this is happening would be most welcome.
