If Women Ran the World

God bless Ted Turner.

Say what you like about the man, he's never short of an opinion. Like the one he gave during a Reuters Newsmaker appearance. You can read the entire article here but let's talk about this gem:

"Men should be barred from public office for 100 years in every part of the world. ... It would be a much kinder, gentler, more intelligently run world. The men have had millions of years where we've been running things. We've screwed it up hopelessly. Let's give it to the women."

So that begs the question...what would the world be like if women ran it? Do you agree that it would be better? Would we have a kinder, gentler universe? Do you think Ted's been eating too may buffalo burgers? Let me know!

I carefully reply to this one. I don't think the world would be so much better if women ran it. We do seem more compassionate and caring. But acting on our emotions is not always a good thing. Think of having a female boss in the work place. How many times have you found yourself waiting until she's in a good mood to get her to agree to let you out early. Ok, that's for the lower orders who aren't the boss. And maybe every woman isn't the same, but I have received the call from a co-worker saying, "What kind of mood is she in?"
