Progress often taken by small steps

-A A +A

This may seem like an odd place to write about sports, but we have done so before and this subject is worth hammering home.

Whether or not you are a big basketball fan, March is certainly a time when that sport hits its high note in the college ranks.

If you have any feeling for the game, you have been watching the teams slug it out in some great exhibitions of talent and hard work.

But if you are like many viewers, you may have missed the best basketball being played – the women’s bracket.

For those of you old enough to remember when the women’s collegiate game started, you remember that it was not top-notch basketball. The game was slow, scoring was low and it was almost painful to watch.

Not anymore.

If you have watched any of the games to this point – and have not seen any women’s basketball lately – you would be shocked. The play is outstanding, the game is fast and the scores compare with many of the men’s games.

It proves that those who said women had gotten a raw deal for years were right.

It would be nice to think that all this came about because society is warm and caring, but the truth is that this was forced upon us by our government.
