Welcome to the Boys' Club

Well, it seems the Augusta National Golf Club finds itself at the center of another controversy regarding its openly sexist membership policy.  The club only offers membership to men and has refused to change this rule since it opened in the 1930s.  As the site of the Masters Tournament, Augusta National grants membership to the CEOs of its corporate sponsors, including IBM which has, since January, been led by Ginni Rometty.  A woman.

If that's not a conundrum, I don't know what is. 

Let's hope those men in green jackets put on their big boy underwear and do the right thing.  After all, it is 2012, for crying out loud.

I'm not a fan of golf at all and find it quite boring, to be honest.  As my mom says, "If you want to take a walk, take a walk.  You don't need to push a little ball with a stick along the way."

But I'm watching this with bated breath.
