We get to defend a lady 

Friday (tomorrow) on Good Morning: Barry, Paul and I talk about women who . I know where this is heading. Barry and I had met author Donna Spangler, who appeared on the show last Tuesday. She’s married to a dentist 24 years her senior. And I have a feeling this segment is going to springboard from that.
   First: what is the year again? Their is a load of bollocks in 2006.
   Secondly, Donna and Richie are . They have been married for eight years. Sure, Richie has money. But the fact Donna has written a book on how to get a rich guy doesn’t mean she’s a . Barry and I met them both: Donna is sincere, and Richie is one smart bloke. He doesn’t think with his crotch. And this doesn’t look like one of those last-a-few-years Susan Sangster–Frank Renouf-type marriages.
   My view on Donna’s aim is not so much money, but thinking: ‘On the whole, my chances of finding a rich guy with a decent who’ll treat me right might be better than my chances of finding a poor guy with a decent upbringing who’ll treat me right.’
   I don’t necessarily mean financially rich. I mean everything from culturally rich to spiritually rich. With that richness comes a , and with that self-respect comes respect for others.
   That is way better than a who gets a few million in a windfall but lacks the restraint or self-respect to be able to be nice around others. I’m sure we all know a few of those.
   Along with love, Donna sought dignity.
   Richie was raised in a value-filled Jewish household. The fact he and Hef are mates is also irrelevant. If that were the be all and end all, Richie would not have married and would continue par-taying down at the .
   I somehow think Barry and I will use the spot to defend any ridicule that might be levelled at Donna, in generally middle-class . There was plenty of ridicule in a women’s discussion group that went on right after Donna’s interview on Tuesday. There was more in the studio than at an rally in Tehran. My fellow presenters on Tuesday could not handle the fact that Donna uses , intelligence and strength, using her past to attack her .
    can take some solace in that we breed as much in as they are reputed to. ‘Saucer of milk, table for two, meow.’

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
