David Foster

An interesting analysis. You may be right when it comes to very small companies, but I doubt if this is going on, at least at any conscious level, in larger ones. Say you're VP of manufacturing with 300 people working for you. If you're considering hiring 20 more, are you really going to think in terms of additional legal exposure?...you've already got plenty of it.


David, I think you're right about big companies, for what my opinion as an outsider is worth. I've been in small firms all my working life, and in a monosexual construction segment at that. But what I say about my friends is true -- they're scared to death to hire any one, and wouldn't dream of hiring their first woman. If they already have women, then another is not the end of the world.
But folks in the world of big business forget how much of the total workforce is small business.... I've read estimates of 60%, but even if small business is only 33%, that's still a lot.

Herve Leger Australia

The first thing I did when I returned to the States was to call on Rachel. Her mother answered the door. Rachel no longer lived there. She had married a medical student she’d met in college. “I thought she wrote you,” her mother said.

Seen at low tide

  • American White Pelican
    Saw 30 in one flock on a weptember evening while fishing
  • Hummingbird
    Finally, my first hummingbirds. Saw them on a fire bush in Crystal Beach, FL. My rental's neighbor's yard is all xeriscaped, which is ugly to me but just fine with the little hummers. At first, I thought they were the biggest hornets I'd ever seen.
  • Flamingo!
    One of these dudes flew right over my house. I couldn't believe it. And please don't tell me it was a roseated spoonbill because it was a frickin' flamingo, dude! Huge and pink and right there above me. I was like so freaking out, you know?
  • Falcon!
    Don't see these guys too often. Wish we did. Bet the morning doves don't.
  • Black Skimmer
    These beauties are getting scarce, but one flew by yesterday at low tide on the hunt for minnows.
  • Dead sea turtle
    cool, but smelly
  • Reddish Egret
    These have been hanging out around the pool quite a bit lately. Must be a new group of adolesent birds -- the youngsters like to hunt where the water is clear, and it takes them a day to figure out there are not now and never will be fish in the swimming pool no matter how clear the water.
  • Sand Piper
  • Brown Pelican
    I saw a flock of about 200 of these at Disappearing Island yesterday, just south of Anclote Island on the west coast of FL. Good to see such a large flock.
  • Wood Pecker
    They've developed a sudden interest in the orange tree, which just went into bloom.
