International Women's Day

Just a comment--when was the last time an International Women's Day (March 8) pass with such little note on the left. A couple of bloggers mentioned it. I forgot it otherwise. In the same light, the second anniversary of the war passed with relatively little interest as well. Is it because we are occupied with other important issues such as the watching the Republicans' moral outrage over a the mercykilling of a brain-dead woman? The Michael Jackson case? Whatever else?

Just surprised that these dates passed with little comment. International Women's Day is an important day to reflect on the state of women's rights in this country and the world and it's sad that we more or less ignored it this year.
