Regular readers are perhaps dimly aware that the Faster family maintains a little wildlife preserve on a few acres in the Texas Hill Country. It is on this acreage that I have, for the past 2 years, been patiently waiting for a bunch of inefficient and expensive men to finish building me a house, so that Twisty HQ might there remove, the more conveniently to photograph cricket frogs and painted buntings. The structure nears readiness for occupancy. In fact, I’ve started throwing a few things into boxes.
Well, we had Big Weather Doins in Central Texas last night, and a tornado or something whipped through my little cranny of the Hill Country. Here in North South Austin, on the TV radar, I watched this storm advance upon, and finally overtake, my young life’s dream. Why did I do that? Why? It was horrible, but I couldn’t look away. Naturally, this morning I cannot disabuse myself of the notion that El Rancho Deluxe was precisely in the path of this untoward meteorological event. So I’ve gotta buzz out there and see what’s left of the place.
As usual, my lengthy preamble merely introduces a completely unrelated topic, which is that, until I get back, I leave you to ponder (but don’t do it for too long) this stunning new ‘reality’ TV show, When Women Rule the World. A bunch of “strong, educated, independent” hot young babes in bikinis, each “with an axe to grind,” will “rule over a group of unsuspecting men used to calling the shots.”
How will the men react? How will the women treat the men? Can women effectively rule society? Will the men learn what life is like for some women in todayâ€™s world? Will this new society be a Utopia or a hell on earth? And in the end, who will be man enough to succeed in the new social order?
I love how the show is set up so there’s no possible way these women can be portrayed as castrating bitches!
