Back in Ye Olden Times (okay, the 15th to 18th Centuries), women were not allowed to perform on stage or sing to audiences. It was considered unseemly (at least until the creation of divas). So men had to fill the roles that nowadays we expect women to fill.

It was the practice of the times, back then, to use a small knife or scalpel to cut the testicles off of small boys (one treatise recommended crushing said testes with pliers while the boy was immersed in a warm bath). Once a promising voice was discovered (and castration was no guarantee), vocal training was then administered.

Now, you might be asking "Why is he telling us this? Is he trying to make us wince?"

Ahh, gentle readers, this is what happened to a large number of the people in our mainstream media. Many men have drunk the Kool-aid, and been led unresisting to the small room in the White House to have their balls crushed. Then they are trained to avoid any subject that might cast aspersions upon Dear Leader and His Inspired Staff.

Women? Well, the current branch of the Republican Party that is in charge doesn't consider women as anything but brood mares, providing cheap laborers and soldiers for The State. So they've been content to share the Kool-aid only with women who think like they do.

(That brings up George Carlin's question - why is it that women who are against abortion are women you wouldn't want to fuck in the first place?)

But some have not drunk the Kool-aid, or have and yet missed getting the pliers treatment. And these are the people we have to rely upon to spread the word through the mainstream media. The word about the 'outing' of Valerie Plame as a way to get back at John Wilson, the word about the lies that led us into Iraq, the word about the disgusting lies and abject stupidity that seems to be part and parcel with this Administration.
