Carmen's play and Some News About Garden Rage

Carmen is an important voice in the comments sections here. She also has a blog called Mostly Normal, and on this blog she has a wonderful play relating to the topic I blogged about recently: The Catholic Church's views on women. I thought her play is really good.

In other news, garden rage is rearing its ugly head in the U.S.:

The wife of Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., was accused on Wednesday of hitting a woman in a dispute over mulch at a garden center, police said.

If there's anything worth fighting over, it's mulch. Good mulch is hard to get hold of, as most mulch is contaminated by herbicides and other nasty critters, so I felt quite sympathetic to Wanda Baucus when I saw the title of the article. But it turns out that she wasn't angry about losing the best mulch in the place; she was furious because the other woman was served before she was. So it was just the usual human hierarchy stuff, and illogical as also is the custom: She should have hit whoever was doing the serving, not the other customer.
