Mr. Williams, I truly enjoy reading your columns. Truth and wit -- what a great combination! I especially liked the line, "I'm personally wondering what whoever is in charge of lightening has against men." LOL! Thanks for giving me a grin this morning.
Are women equal to men? Are Jews equal to gentiles? Are blacks equal to Italians, Irish, Polish and other white people? The answer is probably a big fat no, and the pretense or assumption that we are equal -- or should be equal -- is foolhardy and creates mischief. Let's look at it.

Male geniuses outnumber female geniuses 7-to-1. Female intelligence is packed much closer to the middle of the bell curve, whereas men's intelligence has far greater variability. That means that though there are many more male geniuses, there are also many more male idiots. The latter might partially explain...
