Mr. Burton, you need to read up on your history.  No bras were burned in 1920.  The famous "bra burning" took place at the Miss America pageant in 1968, and no bras were burned there either http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=94240375

Clearly you didn't read a thing I wrote. It's apparent you have issues with men.

I challenge you to show me where I said women can't be good leaders or that there should be less, or any of your bra burning 1920 views.

P.S. You've been in the kitchen too long.

Haha--reading these out of order, so apologies.

Yeah, I'm bossy. You know how little ladies get when a little power goes to our heads. Good thing we've got men to keep us in our places!

Richard, I generally think the personal attacks on this list degrade the conversation and are beneath the professionalism and intelligence of the subscribers (not to mention how they likely discourage many people from participating), but given how perfectly you illustrated the point from my first email with your pithy response below, I can only imagine it was done as the pinnacle of ironic wit.  Kudos.

Mr Burton, it's helpful when addressing one and only one member of this huge list to actually address them by name.
 
Or ideally to not be quite so caustic, but that's your call obvs.
