            ‘Easier’ parking for women, ‘honey-do’ lists for men

            It’s not a joke, local columnist Deidra Jackson writes – female drivers in a couple of cities have their own parking spaces.

Ray explores those options in relation to our one-man, one-vote system. (July 13, 2012, Page 4A)
