Girls playing boys hockey? What's next...women in the armed forces? women in the space program? women in government?

Mr. Minogue, otoh, sounds as if he's an economist:

"The coup de grace? The Achilles heel of democracy assured that a small opportunistic group would prevail against a majority only marginally affected by its actions."

Mean, evil democracy has been the cause of the decline of so many civilizations: the Phoenicans, the Greeks, the Romans, the Egyptians, and the Spanish were all known for the embracing of democracy causing their collapse.

Aside to Kim: we do have a category "hockey." (Of course, the last time it was used someone asked if we expected them to believe we were discussing a professional league.)
