Who Knew?

I have been working on a female counterpart to the Steam Sheathe graphic, and the current work is one of a steam and gear-driven corset.

Aggie Sith breathlessly suggests that this be made more than the sum of it’s parts – gears, piston, steel cables, and anchor points – yes, she wants lacy frilly stuff which as a man I know nothing of.  Men don’t notice frilly stuff – we notice what is in frilly stuff.

The meeting comes as Democratic leaders enter the final stretch of health care reform — and as they scramble to address fractures in their Caucus over abortion and immigration provisions in the bill.

Weren’t “good old boy” meetings fiercely and bitterly waged war against by feminists everywhere not too long ago?

Oh, but like minorities, it’s ok for us to have exceptions.
