Quick Hits I: State Of U.S. Womanhood

How sad it is that American men are fixated on women's breasts but give little thought to the territory south of them. That would be the uterus, which is a big loser in the health-care reform bill passed by the House.

To recap, a woman would be denied insurance coverage for a life-saving D&C but a man would get coverage for an erectile dysfunction-relieving prescription drug.

This tells you all you need to know about the progress American women have made at the end of the first decade of the new millennium.

Keep holding 'em down, you big strong men, keep holding 'em down.
