Pat's grumpy

Part I Doing the dishes with the TV on in the other room, I heard someone ask "Is your heart strong enough for love?" Ah, I thought what an interesting question. Oh wait, it's not a philosophical question. It's a caution about a male potency drug.

Part II I got an e-mail from a friend, whose professional life has been about gender equity- mostly in STEM, about her new project. She says "I'll be working again with the best teacher from the XXXX project I worked with him in XXXX last year. An utter joy, and so much easier to work with a man. You can get so much more done that way." WTF?

Boy do I wish all this had happened in time for the April fools Carnival (which by the way is great) it would have made a great entry.
