I'm so honored to again host this week's Cotillion Ball. What with the Thanksgiving hurrah and the mad rush into winter, the plucky gals still gave it a go at some excellent writing that I highlight here today.
If you're not reading Jane at Armies of Liberation, let me remind you that Santa sees everything as is keeping a list. Avoid that lump of coal and read about how the Yemeni government has wigged out in the wake of Jane's interview on Al-Jazeera.
From the Thawrah, the government newspaper, to the Congress Party’s newspaper ( Al-Methaq) and between them, all the government and the websites newspapers even the small bulletins and independent journals which they use the public money all of them have nothing to say only talking about Jane Novak the describing her as a conspirator, Zionist, traitor, unemployed and the owner of a bad website and lying sources.Standing ovation for Jane. Many times one can take pride in just who hates you.
One of the most enjoyable things I've found since becoming a member of the Cotillion is the free exchange of ideas (and backroom silliness) among the sisters. We can even respectfully disagree with each other. Imagine that! We aren't Stepford wives. While I'm personally an advocate of the death penalty, do read the very thoughtful entry, Why I don't like the death penality from Zendo Deb at TFS Magnum examining the recent case of Ruben Cantu.
In what reads as a live-blog of Thanksgiving, Sissy at sisu takes us from discovery that the turkeys were partially frozen to naptime after a hearty meal. Complete with pictures! Uh, Sissy, there really is such a thing as gingerbread Peeps??
Charmaine at Reasoned Audicity digs up an article that highlights the gender differences people bring to money management and studies that show, yes indeed, women make better money managers. As Dennis Prager opines, either a study confirms common sense, or it's wrong. Heh.
I'm sure you're going to enjoy reading the eclectic collection of writings I have linked. My thanks to all The Cotillion sisters and we'll be back next week.
