NO HARDYVILLE COLUMN YET TODAY. Sorry, my fault. First thing, I pushed my deadline awfully hard and didn't get the lastest turned in until yesterday. Second thing, Oliver-the-webmaster tells me that Dave-the-editor has "concerns" about this one.

I don't know whether the concerns are because I wrote about prostitutes or politics. I'm betting on politics; a Bush-bashing column in the print version of BHM darned near got me canned last year. Anyway, I'll keep you posted. If Dave rejects the column, maybe I'll auction it on eBay or something. :-)

Oliver pointed me toward another good piece on BHM. If you read the 'zine, you know Dorothy Ainsworth, the self-described ordinary woman who's set herself to the most extraordinary accomplishments in log-home building -- and then accomplished everything all over again when her newly completed home burned to the ground. Dorothy is also famously endowed, and in the article linked above she does a fine, sensible job answering both male and feminist-female readers who focus on her breasts rather than her achievements. Good observations on the nature of relationships and on recognizing people for what they do, rather than their genetic luck of the draw.
