"A uterus is not a substitute for a conscience." -- Author Barbara Ehrenreich opines on the Abu Ghraib prison scandal and the role of female soldiers (both in the photos and running the prison) in it. She admits that as an older-school feminist, she secretly sorta believed women are morally superior to men, and could never, would never, participate in such atrocity. Mmmmm, not so much. I think Anne Rice said it best: "Evil is always possible. Goodness is a difficulty."
