    But can they eat in the Men's Grill?

    Hootie just cracked Mecury Morris' cat in the head with a champagne bottle.

    Heard a rumor nine years ago that Augusta and Hootie were in the process of adding a female member when Martha Burk started her bluster and they immediately backed off so that it wouldn't look like they were caving to Burk.
     
  6. Do they know that Condi Rice, in addition to being a woman, is also black?

    They have had black members since right after the Shoal Creek mess ... Saw another mess coming and quietly admitted a couple of folks.

    They'll be at the head of the table, like Hank Hill at the formerly all-Asian golf club.

    This is great news.
     
  10. If it wasn't for Martha Burke I wonder if Sandra Day O'Connor would have been the first female member.

    I don't believe for a second that they were about to admit a woman until Martha Burke began her awareness raising campaign.

    I don't believe for a minute that Burke's campaign had anything to do with this.
