I thought given Nancy's great highlight of women's political work and Zimm's analysis and the timely discussion of Alaska's road to no where that I would post my op ed piece from 2005 on the subject. I remember being really astounded that the government would waste this kind of money. Had I known that some of that money was taken away from strengthening the levy pre Katrina in New Orleans (correct me if I am wrong as someone just told me this today)...I would have attempted something a bit more strong. I am curious about Zimm's observations having been told at times by art directors that my work looks like a mans (years ago I was told when living in Dallas). I do think that my work has become more empathetic the older I get, though many times I am hired because of the feminine quality of the work. So now I wonder, was my work closer to masculine in my younger years and why has it evolved in this way...hmmmm. Got me thinking.
