plays with the implications of the possible readings of last week's poll
relating marital status and voting preferences, in which it is revealed that single woman support Kerry nearly 2 to 1. I heard this poll being discussed last week on the radio. It's nothing short of shocking; we all could have guessed there was a gap, but no one could have guessed it was that
glaringly huge. As I heard the numbers, numerous explanations ran through my head, some of them more plausible than others. There's certainly not one looming explanation which fully justistifies the gap; it's more than likely a combination of countless smaller factors. But O.O.'s unearthing of an 'Amazonian' subculture (which conjures up images of Xena, Warrior Princess
and her hordes of thong-girded amazons marauding through Times Square) is the most likely to give me very interesting nightmares tonight.
