First we had a female member of the Irish Guard... and then the first female Speaker of the House... and now there's going to be a female Beefeater. Neat! You know, I tried to break down a gender wall once. Back in college when I worked at Coachmen, I was all fired up to be the first woman forklift-driver (simply because the guy in charge said I couldn't). And then my Dad pointed out that I was making a hell of a lot more per hour sitting in front of a computer than I would be driving a forklift in a freezing warehouse. That's when I decided that breaking through glass floorboards isn't as fun as glass ceilings.
