Ladies Welcome

Our commenter Jeanie Oliver has asked why the overwhelming majority of comments at this website are from men, and I’ve often wondered the same thing. I know that there are more than a few female readers out there, and if you are one of them I just want to make it clear to you that you are most welcome. As I mentioned in reply to Jeanie’s remark, my fondest wish for this website is that it be a salon, not a soapbox; my goal in scribbling these posts is not publicity, but conversation, and this place can feel rather like a boys’ boarding-school dormitory at times. I certainly have plenty of opinions about things, but many of them are almost certainly wrong, and my only hope of making any progress in the time I have left is to have intelligent people, of both sexes, to talk about them with.
