"A few minutes with . . . a really smart soccer player"

There may still be hope for the country.

Being a college student is tough enough.

Imagine trying to keep up your grades while starting for the Michigan State women’s soccer team.

Sarah Kovan has done that extremely well.

Kovan, 21, is working on bachelor’s degrees in comparative cultures and politics and in human biology and was recently named a Rhodes Scholar, an achievement so rare, the school says she’s only the 17th at MSU since 1904. The award pays for Kovan to attend graduate school at the University of Oxford in England.


"Obama’s new cancer Rx is a war on men"

With billions of dollars being wasted on Medicare fraud and other inefficiencies in our health care system, sure, let's cut a few bucks for testing.

I think Glenn Reynolds absolutely nails it:

You know, I understand the arguments against doing a lot of screenings — especially with tests, like the PSA test, that are only so-so — but I’m kind of suspicious that we suddenly started listening to them just as ObamaCare passed into law.


"Today's feminists are so out of touch with how most women live, they might as well be on another planet"

Julia Harley-Brewer tells it like it is.

I'm not saying there isn't further to go for women's equality, but I just don’t see a lot of the key feminist cause celebres as “women’s issues”. Childcare, for instance, is a parents’ issue, and rape and domestic violence aren’t crimes against women, they’re simply crimes. . . .

Frankly, after an evening debating the role of feminism in today’s Britain, I couldn’t decide whether to laugh or cry (but that's female hormones for you).
