I love this quote from Kathryn Lopez directed to Ellen Goodman (link via Michelle Malkin):
My reaction to Goodman-like complaining is: It's 2007, you live in the United States. You have a pen, phone and Internet connection. Stop whining. It's unattractive. If you want to have an impact, just work. That's how the guys do it. That's how we gals do it.
