Finally a spring day in NY and I've had the garden door open all day and the fresh air is so nice. Spent some time putterig and also cleaning out/dealing with a roster of emails and I'm down to three. BTW, I watched the HBO Anita HIll "Confirmation" movie last night and I would recommend it if you have HBO or can get it through Netflix. Mary and I had previously talked about Joe Biden's role as head of the Senate Judiciary Committee and how it wasn't a stellar pro-woman performance on his part. In this film, he's portrayed as someone who easily bends to pressure from the pro-Thomas side, curses a lot (which I believe is accurate in real life)... and at one point, a female says to him in disgust, "So much power, so little leadership" which is such a great phrase and one that fits in many areas of the corporate world as well.
It was also interesting in that the movie used real news clips from the time and there's a section in the end when the female newspeople such as Barbara Walters and Andrea Mitchelll try to talk about their own experienes in "roundtable" sessions and they are pretty much cut off and interrupted by the males.
Anyway, on a lighter note, here is Mary's great-niece Delaney who is having her brush with greatness meeting Cinderella... location unknown.
