Good day to get started. Just finished copy-editing my book and I'm looking forward to moving on to other writing projects.
Anyway, I guess now is as good a time as any to wade into this overhyped Obama/Clinton feud. First we've got a unfortunate beatdown administered to Gloria Steinem by Melissa Harris-Lacewell.
When I read Steinem's piece, the stupid dichotomy of it pissed me off. But the more I read, the more I got the sense that it was just more half-baked than malicious. It's not like there's no point to be made about gender, but her argument is presented in either/or black/white terms. She really needed an editor. Anyway after awhile, I wished Lacewell had pulled back, as I don't think Steinem was the enemy. Old girl was having none of that though...
