shameless self-promotion, 1:09 in a series


I read that NYT article about women legislators earlier today and thought two things: "Go, us!" and "Well, duh!" Of course, women pass more compassionate legislation; women are the traditional caretakers of humankind. As a former legislator (on a very small scale; county board of supervisors), I have been appalled at the overwhelmingly white, male, >60 face of our county board. The last board, elected in 2016, was almost 100% of that demographic. Then one board member died -- an occupational hazard when the median age is ~68 -- and another moved out of his district, and bam! two females were appointed to replace them. No guarantees, but I hope their presence matters.
