Wealth Gap Widening Between Lawmakers and Constituents

(Google) The American people have been facing tough economic challenges. While politicians often lecture Americans about tightening up their proverbial belts to help themselves during these dire economic times, it appears that many politicians are in fact doing the opposite, since their income has grown exponentially while they've been in office. Peter Whoriskey of the Washington Post reports that the wealth gap between lawmakers and constituents is widening, according to an analysis of financial disclosures by the Washington Post: Between 1984 and 2009, the median net worth of a member of the House more than doubled, according to the analysis of financial disclosures, from $280,000 to $725,000 in inflation-adjusted 2009 dollars, excluding home ­equity.

Coupled with the exorbitant cost of running an election campaign, it stands to reason that the wealth gap would widen. Cfr.

Homosociality (as explained so well in Michael Kimmel's Manhood in America) is the principle that all men, including heterosexual ones, are raised in our culture to be more eager to please other men than women. It doesn't take much in my classes to get heads nodding as the subject comes up! To use one cheap and easy example, homosociality explains the function of catcalls and wolf whistles.

I've often been asked by female students why men whistle and hoot at them from construction sites and passing cars. Young Feminists Blogging, Organizing, Kicking Ass. Church of Inglip. The Paris Paradox: how sexualization replaces opportunity with obligation... - StumbleUpon. I’ve often quoted Courtney Martin’s now-famous line from her Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters:We are the daughters of feminists who said, “You can be anything” and we heard “You have to be everything.” I call it the Martha Complex, others call it the Supergirl syndrome; whatever name you give it, most of us who work with young people agree that it’s absolutely rampant among contemporary girls and young women (even those whose mothers weren’t feminists!)

He creates clean, technically proficient work that always has something slightly off in it—his subjects seem to be in some kind of uncomfortable stasis, like they are trapped in a moment of unhappiness. He’s mainly done portraiture in the past, but he’s recently branched out into comic books, and we sat down with him recently to talk about his creative process, the difficulties in making a clear narrative story, and how there’s no money in the internet.
