    backs, and we say worse, too.  But would you recommend that you stand up in public and ask this same old boss if he should step aside to make room for young men in the same practice?  Yeah, you wouldn't and neither would your brave male professor or your male classmates.  Most men, old and young, are cowards when challenging each other about being too old to hold on to power, but oh so brave when challenging women.

    Your tenured professor can challenge his colleagues for being too old to retain their positions because he won't lose his job for saying it.  But he won't.

    Luke Russert should learn something from this schooling by Pelosi, but he won't, because he didn't get his job because he's the brightest or most accomplished reporter, he got it because his father's friends gave him the job without any previous experience or qualifications.

      died and it really shook up all daddy's co-workers who thought Daddy Tim was the cat's meow.

      Tim Russert's charms were always pretty opaque to me, but there were people who thought the sun rose & set in him. THEY were the ones who set Li'l Luke up.

      Too bad the old man's friends thought it was a good idea to start the kid so close to the top, without giving him some time to gain experience. (Nothing could have helped improve the native intelligence.) I don't even know if the kid was even interested in working in journalism.

      "real" work : a job where you wash your hands BEFORE you use the bathroom...
