Women talk three times as much as men, says studyIt's always amazing that someone gets paid to do 'research' like this. Everyone already knows that women talk more than men, I guess it's nice to know just how much [heh].

It is something one half of the population has long suspected - and the other half always vocally denied. Women really do talk more than men.
In fact, women talk almost three times as much as men, with the average woman chalking up 20,000 words in a day - 13,000 more than the average man.
Women also speak more quickly, devote more brainpower to chit-chat - and actually get a buzz out of hearing their own voices, a new book suggests. (link)
Pelosi-Hastings Meeting Could Signal End of Chairmanship BidGood news from the ethnically-challenged Pelosi if this is true. I understand that when you become speaker you get to weild the power, but to place a person you voted to impeach in the position to see all the security secrets of the country (someone who can't get a security clearance) over someone you just don't like is beyond the pale in politics.

WASHINGTON — House Speaker-designate Nancy Pelosi will meet Tuesday with Florida Rep. Alcee Hastings, and those with knowledge of Pelosi's thinking told FOX News that Hastings will be told he is not going to be the next chairman of the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
Though no formal decisions have been announced and Pelosi aides say the situation remains fluid, they suggest that the meeting at Pelosi's Capitol Hill office was requested by Hastings so he could bow out of the race before Pelosi denies him the job.
"He knows he's not going to get it," said one senior House Democratic aide. "The question is why he didn't bow out long ago." (link)
