Give Men a Snow Shovel

By Richard Whitmire — February 10, 2010 1 min read

Kathleen Parker has a great column in today’s Washington Post about when men feel most purposeful.

It reminds me of my conversations with Tom Mortenson, the guru of the gender gap issue. Mortenson has a stark view of men. Their purpose in life is simple: Work. Grunt work, is okay. Any kind of work. Take work away from men, and they’re lost.

Parker, author of Save the Males, reminds us of the stressful days ahead as less-educated males try to cope with an economy turning against them.
