She Works Hard for the Money

More good news about the current economic catastrophe! It's balancing out the jobs to gender ratio.

The image on the right is a little deceptive seeing as it shows the share of jobs spanning the years 1965 to 2008 with most of the changes occurring between 1965 and 1990.

Putting all this "good news" about the financial mess on my blog is making me feel like a pundit on FOX.

And all you feminists out there will be happy to note that the incoming congress (the one-happy 111th) has more women than any other in history. With 17 senators (17%) and 75 congresswomen (17%) couple with the massive power that is wielded by the modern congress, we are basically living in a matriarchy.
