I had a somewhat lengthy commentary prepared for today, but then I read it and deleted the entire thing.
It would have branded me in the eyes of female readers as a misogynist and an idiot.
It would have revealed me to many of the docious masses as being a bigot -- and an idiot.
To one or two intelligent readers it might have struck them as having been funny.
I think I might lighten up on blogging and return to fiction writing.
WORD FOR TODAY
docile, amenable to order

On this day in history, the Attica Prison riot occurred at the Attica Correctional Facility in Attica, New York, United States in 1971. This riot is one of the most famous and important riots during the Prisoners' Rights Movement. The riot was based upon prisoners' demands for political rights and better living conditions. On September 9, 1971, two weeks after the killing of George Jackson at San Quentin, about 1,000 of the Attica prison's approximately 2,200 inmates rioted and seized control of the prison, taking 42 staff hostage.
