9. There are many men who also support the cause

I have a problem with sexism from both sides. The only reason why I wasn't standing next to my sisters tonight is that I have no car to take me to Lansing.

I would have given a significant portion of my $1K monthly social security to be on those steps. Alas, I just don't have the resources.

Suffice it to say. We are unequivocally with you. And we thank all the people who served as surrogates for those of us who would stand at your sides if we were able.

8. Tonight they are performing

the Vagina Monologues on the steps of the capitol in MI . . . Representative Lisa Brown joins Eve Ensler in the reading . . . I wonder how they are going to try to shut her up this time . . . I'm looking for her to be censured for unprofessional behavior and man that is NOT going to go over well with women.
