    Today’s strip opens the door for comments about women being gossipy.

    National Security and science are contradictory. One is for limitation of information and dissemination of false information where as Science goes by interaction of information and is hurt by false information.

    No gender has the lock on gossip. Men do it all the time. They may not call it that but empirically it is.

    She put a brain wave detector on a drone missile so it will fly right to its target.

    Reminds me of the Mad satire on ‘The Spy Who Loved Me.’
    “Only three people have seen this course.. the Minister of Defense, the Admiral of the Navy … and the man at the five and dime store who makes copies.’
    “And the captain of the sub.’
    ‘Oh .. we never let him see it.’
    “H’mmm … that may be taking security a bit too far.’

    Women gossip; men share their thoughts. A gray-haired man looks distinguished; a gray-haired woman looks old. A man who loses his temper is under a lot of pressure; a woman who loses her temper is hysterical. And so on…

    No problem. The MIBs will just neuralize them again like the last five times this happened.

    The funny thing, it seems to come down largely to the pitch of the voice. Deep-voiced women and high-voiced men lose some of this differential.

    Once gossip appeared as a crime in the criminal code, but not gossip per se, which is just sharing news about people in a community: malicious gossip was criminal, which was gossip intended to defame, injure, or discredit. In face-to-face societies, reputation was everything. It didn’t even matter if the the gossip was true — it was the intent to do harm that was seen as criminal.

    Ah, but a woman with gray hair looks confident.

    Just so she doesn’t join Bradley Manning who blew the whistle on war crimes committed by US forces.

    Great Britain has very stiff libel laws compared to the US. First Amendment not withstanding I’ve always felt that the US could use stiffer libel laws. Just because you have freedom of speech, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be responsible for what you say.
