"Fighting is essentially a masculine idea; a woman's weapon is her tongue." Hermione Gingold

Today's ever so short commentary has nothing to do with women in combat.

The title appropriately captures some of the headlines, from Drudge Report, that caught my eye over early morning coffee.

First, tis the Season...

"Woman stabbed boyfriend for starting Thanksgiving dinner without her"

I didn't bother reading the article but concluded low blood sugar must have been her alibi. What a turkey, she.

Then, shopping...

"Women fight over Barbie doll"

There was pushing and shoving and at least one punch thrown - over a $5.00 doll. Good grief. A policeman, only rumored to be named Ken, restored order without having to arrest anyone. Oh, and where else but Walmart! Another woman said it was dumb. Brilliant! Who ended up with Barbie? I've no idea. And don't care.

And, the best...

"Women fight over cheap panties"

I didn't bother reading this one, either. First thought - a college boy's dream. Which triggered recall of a line from a country song of some years ago: I like my women a little on the trashy side.

Finally, a little happiness...

"Beginning of the end for Pelosi?"

Let us pray.

Enough! It's game time, college football, and there are some dandies on today.

And women - cheerleaders - too. May they follow Hermione Gingold's thought and root for their team to fight and win and spread a little - school spirit - too; leaving the on field fighting to the men.

Post Script

Ole Miss has better looking cheerleaders! Hotty toddy!
