I only heard a snipet of Dianne Rhem's show today. I thought she is an old, old lady. It turned out that she has spasmodic dysphonia, a neurological condition that causes strained, difficult speech.

Today's show was about soccer and discrimination. The men's team charges 7 USD for something, and the women's team only 4 USD. A lot of ladies called in complaining about discrimination because the fees suggest that the women are not good enough. As I said, I only heard a little of the show, so I didn't quite know how the 3$ difference makes it a discrimination. Sometimes, I think that the word "discrimination" is bastardized. It's used so much, it's lost is power, and it's meaning.
