I have a feeling things might grow silent over at Both Wearing Black Masks (are there three masks now?), so I thought I would try to commune with the spirits that reside there and throw up a thoughtful post.
What would Casey do?
How about Emerson:
Women are, by this and their social influence, the civilizers of mankind. What is civilization? I answer, the power of good women.
I hope this doesn't offend contemporary sensibilities. I guess Casey wouldn't care.
