Last week marked Augusta National Golf Club’s admittance of its first two female members: former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and investment banker Darla Moore.

I recently found myself at a table in City Grocery’s bar, sharing a round of drinks with a few people I consider close friends, casually debating the likelihood of Newt Gingrich’s plans to uncover and subsequently capture the al-Qaeda base located on the dark side of the moon.
