There are too many cultural variables present to ascribe a lack of presence of older women elites to body degradation. There is overwhelming societal pressure on women to put down the fun and games and start a family. Men, however, are encouraged to continue sports well beyond their prime years.

That's becoming less and less true. And the HS lists don't lie--women gain less with increased age even in HS versus men. That they peak earlier is an obvious conclusion given the lower trajectory of improvement in the teens.

I find the Jenkins stuff hilarious in hindsight.

What she had to say about USADA's handling of the BALCO case, its shifting standards for guilt, and the illegality of the grand jury testimony leaks is as valid today as it was two years ago.

She is a MJ apologist so no matter how good her points are, I am reading them in that light. At least tafnut et al folded their tents. Still waiting for her to do so.

Does Sally Jenkins really not know how serious perjury is? Maybe this was posted earlier.

Some folks around here seem to have no problem with some subversions of the judicial process, such as leaking sealed grand jury testimony, while getting worked up about others, such as perjury. Nope, no hypocrisy here, folks, move along . . .

Kind of like the double standard she is referring to.
