My podcasting partner Stacy McCain has been writing (here and here) about Rep. Katie Hill and her current difficulty handling the PR fallout from matters related to her husband’s filing for divorce. I’ve stayed away from the story because I didn’t have anything to add to coverage.
However, I will make these observations:
Rep. Hill is not the only female Democrat involved in a campaign/office related divorce.
We were told by our betters that women would be different.
Whether one believes that we are an evolved species or a specially created one, long-term monogamous sexual partnerships really do seem to be the best way to structure our lives.
One the recurring post titles here at Hogewash! is Don’t Know Much About History. Another is Don’t Know Much Biology. They are, of course, lines from the song Wonderful World.
Don’t know much about history
Don’t know much biology
Don’t know much about a science book
Don’t know much about the French I took
Here’s Sam Cooke’s version recorded in 1959.
But I do know, one and one is two
And if this one could be with you
What a wonderful world this would be
So, what happens when one and one aren’t two? Modern life, with its many non-traditional families, tells us, and my podcasting partner Stacy McCain has a post up about the fallout from one attempt at ignoring the wisdom of the ’50s and the Copybook Headings.
