There is a theme here.

A jury of 10 women and two men sentenced a DWI driver to probation in the death of his friend.

A female judge sentenced a 16-year-old to probation in a DWI crash that killed four.

Thousands of women re-elected the worst president this nation has ever had.

A female secretary of state quits her job, and leaves the Middle East in turmoil. She cannot look after her husband, but wants to run the country.

A female politician whose slogan is “Stand for Wendy” is running against a proven state attorney general (who is in a wheelchair) for governor.

Gentlemen, you have to vote to save your state and country.

— Derek Sidwell, Fort Worth
