Of all the man bashing, hysterical columns, this one ranks as one of the worst. 'Anne Letterse' plays fast and loose with numbers (half of 7800 is 3000 ??), trots out hoary old statistics that conceal more than they reveal (women make 80% of what men make), and cites her own personal history of martial and finacial failure without taking personal responsibility for her fate or the fates of her children.

We can do without this type of inflamatory 'journalism'.

Dear Paul, I understand your claim of male bashing, but I have seen quite a bit of it on the male side also. Look at the message board regarding Hewlett Packard and notice how the first male writes that the new female CEO was "whining" and "bitching" during her explanation of a deal lost to a competitor.

Took everything I had to not hunt him down and slap him.
