THERE'S NO JUSTICE IN A WORLD WHERE DOCTORS MAKE MORE THAN ZAMBONIMEN:

More wives bringing home the bacon (CHERYL L. REED, 5/15/05, Chicago Sun-Times)

More than 8.3 million wives are bringing home bigger bucks than their husbands.

That's one out of four dual-earning couples where the wife makes more moolah -- up 7 percentage points in the last 16 years, according to a report on women in the labor force released last week by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.


I'd like to think I'm doing my part for the feminist cause.

I'll bet this isn't what you had in mind when you played "Doctor."

And little enough justice in a world where doctors support their layabout husbands.

I send my wife out for bacon and she comes back with more usless ornaments for the garden.

The wives of ultra-orthodox Jews have been bringing home the bacon for generations. Centuries, actually. Heck, make that millenia.

Trend setters.

Isn't it unkosher for ultra-orthodox Jewish wives to bring home bacon?
