    and games like football, where men sit around and cheer as players knock the sense out of each other - the more violence the better - all contribute to a culture where this happens all to often.

    But again, this is about a powerful man and a powerless woman.

    Women are 51% of the population yet are represented in congress by barely 17%! Until our representation reflects the population, we risk sliding backwards .....

      that keeps happening over and over again.
      Domestic violence by firearm by a pro football player in a culture where the usual evening television entertainment is the dramatization of multiple murders.

      It's a dark and tragic stew.
