In these dog days of summer I’m closely watching a few ongoing conflicts and I’m siding with the women in each one.

Pope Benedict XVI vs. the Nuns.

Putin vs. Pussy Riot

USA vs. Japan
Without cable tv we’ve had to arrange our days around finding a set for the Women’s soccer games. The games have been sensational. The semi-final against Canada was was one of the most thrilling games I’ve ever seen. I was so happy to see Christie Rampone’s brilliant shot and Heather O’Rielly come off the bench and cross that perfect ball to Rochester Flash’s Alex Morgan in the final minute of overtime. I don’t think I could handle the noise level while watching the game at Abby Wambach’s brother’s bar. We will probably go for the comfort of my parents living room.

And I’ve been celebrating Marlene Dumas‘s birthday all week.
