Ground-breaking female rocket scientist sure could cook!

Mary Elizabeth Williams writes for Salon: “Easiest quiz you’ll take today: Let’s say an eminent scientist and inventor, an individual who worked on the first American satellite designs, dies after a long and distinguished career. Why would the first thing mentioned in the New York Times obituary be in praise of said scientist’s cooking skills? Did you say, because the scientist was a woman? You win! And by ‘win,’ I mean, get to bang your head against your desk in a slow and methodical manner until the rage subsides.”
