Over at The Washington Monthly, Amy Sullivan kicked off the women in writing argument with a truly terrific essay, and Kathy Pollitt followed up with an equally persuasive response. You should read both (Sullivan's is longer, but more than worth it). One thing though -- Pollitt wonders why nobody has given Barbara Ehrenreich, who did a great job filling in for Tom Friedman on the NY Times op-ed page, a permanent slot. According to Kinsley, the LA Times tries and was rebuffed. I don't know if the New York Times made the same offer -- I'd think not, because the only slot to open was for a conservative -- but it's worth noting that at least one of the big three made the effort.
