  1. Working stiff

    According to an analysis of recent Census data, American women who work full time, year round are paid only 77 cents for every dollar paid to their male counterparts. But the wage gap is even larger for many women of color working full time, year round, as African-American women are paid only 64 cents, and Hispanic women only 54 cents, for every dollar paid to white, non-Hispanic men. These gaps translated into a loss of $18,650 for African-American women and $24,111 for Hispanic women in 2012. Additionally the gap seems to be growing. The year before, African-American women made 69 cents for every dollar made by a white man and Hispanic women made 60 cents. http://www.nwlc.org/sites/default/files/pdfs/2013.11.13_closing_the_wage_gap_is_crucial_for_woc_and_their_families.pdf

    You’ve got no box for praise under your About pages, so it’ll just have to stack it here.

    1. Excellent diction, twenty bonus points for “dross.”

    2. “Social scientists tell us the average human being stops learning at age 26.” Who the hell are these “scientists” and what barrel bottom are they scraping for their test group? Holy crap, the fun of being alive is finding out how stuff works out there. (If i have to settle for scientists, I will, but the bastards drag their feet a lot. I blame Descartes.)

    3. Scotland = awesome. I’m drawn to Scots for no particular reason except nearly everything about them (can’t kiss a beard). I moved to Portland, Oregon, where the weather and landscape mimics Scotland so well, it catches Scottish immigrants like flies on plaid flypaper. We have numerous kilt shops. It’s raining. Right. Now.

    May I recommend Danny Bhoy’s comedic stylings and Billy Connolly’s biography, “Billy”? As if you didn’t already know about both.
