Mad Men

Mad Men is probably one of the greatest shows on tv right now. The story lines are great, the sets are fanciful, and the costumes are to die for. And if you think as a professional woman you're having a bad day at the office, you can just watch an episode and see the pitiful way working women were treated and feel a hecku a lot better about your job. Most days, I watch this show and thank God that there have been great women who paved the way for those of us entering the workforce today. How far we have come...

And then there are days like today. Today, the LA Congress killed a bill, Equal Pay for Women Act, that would have ensured that employers pay equal compensation to employees no matter the sex. Killed it. I don't know what disturbs me more, that such a bill would even have to be brought to the floor in 2009, or that such a bill failed. Opponents stated "Louisiana's small, family owned businesses are under attack!" Yes, Billy Bob - look out for the overworked mother of two, she's coming to get you.

It's madness, and it's maddening.
