Faster than a cannonball

There are certain key words that draw me to a blog: Red Sox, Tom Brady, bitch, pink, hag. I don't know why; they just appeal to my sense of life. Today's blog? Miss Hag. She's, ah, feisty, shall we say, and she credits the women's movement: "We are the daughters of the women who first benefited from the feminist movement. We watched our mothers get fed up. ... Their daughters are cannonballs." And we have to pass that gutsiness on, and stop with the cheap shots: "Let's drop the catty, petty blows about each other's appearance. If we continue to sum each other up by the value of our visual worth, than we will continue to lose opportunities to be more than just pretty faces. Or thin bodies."
