Being female

I learned early that being female was not a blessing. My father, a farmer who wanted all boys, had nine girls and only two boys. His first wife had nine children before she died, five little girls in graves. Few children grew to adulthood in those days. When my mother and father married and had two more children, I remember hearing my mother often tell my brother how proud my father had been to have another son, never mentioning pride in relationship to his final girl.

VA brouhaha

Noted conservative commentator and writer George Will made a valid point recently in discussing the crisis at the Veterans Affairs Department. The federal government, he said, is really good at one thing: writing checks. But when it comes to operational matters, Uncle Sam seems to regularly find new and innovative ways to foul things up. The VA brouhaha is a classic example.
