Our girl Katie!

Be sure to check out Thursday's New York Times article about my good friend Katie Orenstein's forward-looking efforts to get more women--across generations--to pour their passion into writing op-eds. Go, Katie. You give me hope.

Katie's idea is so simple and so obvious, and yet so overdue and seemingly tough to achieve. Of course we should be training women to write in public fora! Otherwise we're left with only Maureen Dowd as our representative. Yegads.

You said it, Daph. And, as I've heard said many a time, if there were more women on the op-ed page, it wouldn't matter so much if there are also Maureen Dowds. She'd be one in a crowd.
