Chipping at the Glass Ceiling

President Obama announced last week his nominee for Supreme Court Justice -- Sonia Sotomayor.

This week Xerox announces its next successor -- Ursula Burns.

Both women were raised in New York City and are minorities.

The odd thing about Xerox. Current CEO is a female, Anne Mulcahy. One would have expected that it would be passed to a male.

Business Week has a great article about Ursula Burns. If you do not have time to read the article, you can listen the the podcast. The podcast hits the highlights of the article.

Stand By Me and Tires

These are my latest finds in the great world wide web...

Isn't this cool?

It's made of tires. What a way to recycle? Check out more here.

He's Just Not Into You

It's a crapshoot when you get on a Continental flight whether you get flight entertainment or not. I lucked out last night. This crew did a switch up. You generally get the movie first and then Continental TV. I liked the switch. As I'm generally snoozing before take-off, I generally miss the beginning of the movie and, plus, the meal service and captain interrupts it.

I saw He's Just Not Into You. I totally enjoyed this chick flick. I could even relate with bits 'n pieces of it.

As for becoming the "exception", I'm still waiting. Just as long as my blood is still pumping, there's time for being the "exception".

If I do not become the "exception", c'est la vie.
