Today we read in the Salt Lake Tribune that Utah's Number One gun lobbyist and activist is no man. His guns are to be taken away, maybe permanently, under the law. (This is the same bozo who had an AR-15 stolen from his vehicle a while back.)
Keepapitchinin.org linked to one of my recent blogs about trying to help my wife find a Mother-of-the-Bride dress. It was the come-on to her link "Going where few men are willing to tread." that made me feel oddly heroic, which is what I was going for with my whole Don-Quixote-Parsifal-Galahad-Disney's-Prince-Philip thing. With that sort of fantasy life, you might expect me to be living in my mom's basement working at a comic book store. Nope.
Anonymous D reminded me today that I live with a strong-willed woman. It takes a real man to do that. There's never been any physical violence and not much even of raised voices. Rather, it has been two very different and equally strong personalities learning to love, live, and become one together. Married almost 33 years, it takes a real man and a real woman.

Here's something I remember from LDS General Conference a few years back. It was the Prophet, President Gordon B. Hinckley:
I wish I could tell you the full story from when I was a counselor in a Bishopric and got involved with a family with domestic violence issues and the law. The male person told me when I became Bishop that he would sustain me but never respect me because I took away the most important thing in his life. He wasn't talking about his family. He was talking about his guns taken because of his problems, not mine.
