I usually am a "lurker" here, but I have to respond to this one. I'm pretty 
sure you would consider me an "eco-feminist PC lefty", Steve, but I also 
happen to have a PhD in chemical engineering. I assure you I can subtract 53 
from 72, as well as solve a partial differential equation using Laplace 
transforms. Usually I find your points of view to be relatively reasonable, 
however, sweeping generalizations like the above do not further a 
discussion, they only lead to sidetracks (like this one :) ).

ps--I like Hillary (sp?), too.
